“Yikes!” is the brand new album from London Elektricity, brimming with beautiful vocals, intriguing instrumentals and sumptuous compositions. From the soothing contemplative lilt of piano-driven, vocal-led “Elektricity Will Keep Me Warm” through the energetic, uplifting cuts like “The Plan That Cannot Fail” with its soaring synths, rock n roll tear out pieces like the eponymous track of the album “Yikes!” and back again to the downtempo, vocal led intro of “Invisible Worlds” and “Fault Lines”, London Elektricity’s signature style is stamped indelibly into each track, but as so often is the case, it is as a whole that “Yikes!” is made a timeless classic.

“This is my first release for three years, and features the vocals of Elsa Esmeralda who graced “Just One Second” from my last album “Syncopated City”. Elsa features on seven tracks on “Yikes!”, and I can safely say this is easily my best work to date. “Yikes!” has been two years in the making; I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!”

The founding father of the Hospital imprint and mouthpiece of the multi-award winning, chart topping Hospital podcast, London Elektricity is a name that should need no introduction. Since starting the label in 1996, Tony Colman has carved out a fearsome reputation as one of the pre-eminent names in drum & bass and is at the forefront of the UK music scene today.

Swedish vocalist Elsa Esmeralda plays a crucial role in shaping the sound of the album. Her tender, soulful voice is poignant and powerful, yet deeply intimate. She will be performing at a series of events with London Elektricity over the summer, including Hospitality at The O2 Academy Brixton, Lovebox and Parklife festivals.

Each track from the album is depicted in cartoon form on the album artwork by graphic artist Trickartt. Striking and characteristically quirky, the cover is composed of a simple head shot of London Elektricity with cartoon vehicles crawling along the rim of his iconic led shutter shades.

Animated videos have been made for a number of the tracks on the album, and provide an integral part of the promotional campaign, with a new video being unveiled to view on londonelektricity.com every week before the album.

The album is available on CD, digitally (deluxe and standard editions) and also as a strictly limited 4×12″ vinyl collectors’ edition in a gatefold sleeve – the full CD album is also included in this package.
