UK born Czech electronic music producer Emika dopped her single “Wonderlife Life”, the re-imagined cover version of Black’s 1986 pop hit released July 7, 2021. The remake sees Emika use her signature synth sound, sultry vocals, and resonant bass-lines to maintain the cool atmosphere of the original, while giving it her melancholic euphoric twist that many know and love her for.
This year will also signify the tenth anniversary of her debut self-titled album and in terms of new releases, a new body of work titled ‘Vega’ will be unveiled throughout the year, comprising of a trilogy of three collections of songs. The new drop will feature re-imagined versions of classic tracks from her Ninja Tune catalogue, including ‘Professional Loving’ (which was sampled by The Weeknd on his track ‘Professional’). ‘Vega’ will also showcase new material including collaborations with Horace Andy (Massive Attack), Liela Moss (The Duke Spirit), and techno behemoth Rødhåd.
