Fresh from her recent collaboration with Marcel Dettmann, Berlin-based British basshead Emika strikes out on her own once more. Having spent much of the last few years working with Ninja Tune, this bonus single is appearing on her own Emika Records imprint. It's something of a gem, too; an exploration of melodious, bittersweet dancefloor pastures in two parts. It pits foreboding Michigan bass, bubbling electronics, sampled vocal harmonies and shimmering synths against a rhythm track built around ghetto-tech style drum machine handclaps and filtered kicks. Choose between the life-affirming, heart-aching swing of "Melancholia Euphoria A" and "Melancholia Euphoria B", a yearning, twinkling rework that makes great use of ascending piano scales and post-classical arrangements.
