London based producer, DJ and label boss Elkka (real name Emma Kirby) announces a new EP titled “Euphoric Melodies”, due out 21st May, marking their first release on Ninja Tune imprint Technicolour. The 5 tracker is a warm and euphoric exploration of what Emma values most – the ability and freedom to believe in oneself, ‘Honing in on your instincts and being able to trust those feelings, whilst being comfortable to do so’ comments Emma, ‘acting on impulse over perfection’.
Speaking more on the EP Emma says:
“Euphoric Melodies started out as an exploration of what pulls me in, what makes me feel those moments of elation when writing music or listening to it or just when living life. The underlying theme seems to be warmth, euphoria and nostalgia…which is what plays out in this EP in different forms. Little did I know that as the EP came together nostalgia for euphoria would be so prevalent”
Lifted from the forthcoming EP is new single ‘Burnt Orange’ – a sentimental homage to family, fit for sun kissed dance-floors and front rooms alike – ‘I wanted to create music for both intimate and public spaces’ Emma adds. The track crackles with optimism and warmth, beautifully textured and delicate but at the same time bold and bright, a theme which continues throughout the record.
