Nikka

***Nikka plays with sensations and with the interaction of the machines in their most pure state, creating each track while walks, skiping the sequences or anything that may intercede in the natural process of musical creation. It’s prety evident that she feels safe among machinery: she can express herself without the use of any subterfuge; she can whether build and destroy rhythms; or better she can create soundscapes that allow us to travel and suggest something at the same time.
