BASIC VOLUME is the long-awaited debut album from GAIKA, released by Warp. Following on from a series of highly acclaimed mixtapes that saw him grace the cover of The Wire, BASIC VOLUME is the most striking and clear viewpoint into his compellingly unique paradox of paranoid dancehall...

Landing with additional production from similarly forward-thinking contemporaries, GAIKA called on SOPHIE, Dutch E Germ, Dre Skull and DADRAS as well as previous collaborators including Jam City, Nick Leon and Frank Ocean’s Blonde and Endless collaborator Buddy Ross. Best described as "a sprawling yet cohesive album that devours genres and spits them out, tangled around personal tales of love, loss and rebellion" BASIC VOLUME unfolds over sixteen tracks that shape it as GAIKA's strongest musical statement yet.

A solid mixture of GAIKA’s distinct vocal style that wraps itself around some of the sharpest dancehall to U.S. trap and into hip-hop beats that are as sparse as they are sparring.
