The UK producer's debut album will come out on Keysound in July.
The London producer is one of the Keysound roster's newest additions—her first release for the label came on the imprint's This Is How We Roll compilation earlier this year. Blue Gardens will be her first solo missive on Keysound.
Originally a fan of US hip-hop, E.m.m.a. became interested in grime and dubstep through Skream's seminal "Midnight Request Line," a hobby which led her to work with names like Sully, Rebel MC and dub legend Adrian Sherwood, the latter of whom apparently had an influence on Blue Gardens. Reportedly inspired by everything from sci-fi to Spaghetti Westerns to her own brand of "Victorian grime," the LP sees E.m.m.a. mostly sticking to the 130 BPM tempo in the vein of her Keysound labelmates but also features dips above and below. She collaborates with Sully and Rebel MC and also offers up a new mix of "Dream Phone," her debut single released on the Wavey Tones imprint back in 2012.
You can stream a snippet of "Jahovia," which will appear on both the album and a preceding 7-inch single, here.
