Ravers welcomes Gaika to the 6 Music Live Room. The experimental artist has returned to his dark side with his latest mixtape, which we are well in favour of. The release features some of our other left field faves, including Dean Blunt, Azekel, Rome Fortune, Skinny Malone, Louis VI and others.

Gaika is never one to sit still, always switching up his sound and exploring new artistic avenues, which included writing and directing a short film and hosting a huge soundsystem installation at Somerset house for a month which was running in conjunction with Notting Hill Carnival.

It's impossible to box his sound in to one genre, as he moves seamlessly between R&B, Dancehall and more, so we can't wait to hear where he takes us during this set.
