7digital What we said: We’ve got to a point in pop culture where we expect our artists to be “saying something”, as though some contrived #woke political agenda might make up for lacklustre music. This is especially apparent when a real musical talent with real things to say steps onto the scene: enter GAIKA. The South London artist has rightly garnered attention over the years, and his debut album now validates the praise. A record dealing in the dystopian reality of life for immigrants, BASIC VOLUME finds GAIKA taking charge with a breathtakingly necessary voice over experimental takes on dancehall, R&B and industrial electronic. Deliciously dissonant yet searing with club heat, we won't be surprised if this ends up a contender for British album of the year.
