This quirky electronic pop song by Moscow-based musician Jekka has a simple, repeating arpeggiated synth pattern at its base. It seems unremarkable at first, but transforms into the perfect counterpoint to Jekka's soaring, oddly melancholic vocals once she starts singing just under a minute in to the track.
This song by Moscow-based musician Jekka shows what you can do with just a laptop, a microKORG and some talent. Layers of looped vocal samples and a full-blooded synth bass combine to provide a platform for Jekka's powerful, dynamic vocal melody. It's a bold and energetic style that draws favourable comparisons with the excellent Tune-Yards album of last year.
