Emika: Wicked Game

Kendrick Lamar's remix, Sunshine Reggae, Jason Molina and more in our weekly music recap

Not since Soul Clap’s muffled edit of “Wicked Game” in 2009 has the classic Chris Isaak track felt so fresh. In a sneak peek at her forthcoming album, Dva, Czech-born, Berlin-based singer Emika released her own version of “Wicked Game,” filled with echoey electronic spirals and vocals that are as sexy as Helena Christensen half-naked on a beach. A preview of the classically trained musician’s sophomore album on London label Ninja Tune shows there are plenty of original songs to also get excited about.
