Born in Nottingham, and currently-based in London producer, remixer, DJ and vocalist (among several other things) Ronika won the attention of the British press with the release of her Selectadisc EP, which paid tribute to a beloved record shop where the young producer bought albums; in fact, that album was praised for it’s crate-digging aesthetic as it borrowed liberally from disco, hip-hop, house, R&B and soul. 

Her latest effort Marathon and its first single, the EP title track “Marathon” continues Ronika’s reputation for crating a sound that easily sounds inspired by Chaka Khan‘s I Feel For You as it does by synth pop and house music; in some way, the track sounds as though it could have been released through Cascine Records as they specialize in a similar sound. In any case, the track reveals that Ronika may well be an international star in the near future.
