“Infectious…an alluring work that is equal parts charming and cheeky” Pitchfork
“Her handling of the source material is so adept, and the results are so fab and imbued with understanding and affection” Sunday Times

Ronika has announced details of her debut album, ‘Selectadisc’, which will be released on June 2 (also available as a limited edition 12” vinyl).
Hailing from Nottingham, Ronika has drawn comparisons with the likes of early Madonna and Tom Tom Club and gained praise from Pitchfork to Nile Rodgers, together with Radio 1, 6Music and 1Xtra. The album takes its name from Nottingham’s iconic independent record store, Selectadisc, which shut its doors for the last time in 2009.
Whilst lining up some exciting new collaborations for 2014, Ronika has already worked with the likes of Mylo and Herve, and recruited an eclectic cast of co-producers for a handful of songs on ‘Selectadisc’; Mixmag’s best new DJ of the year (Citizen), Brooklyn duo Javelin, and local hip-hop pioneer Joe Buddha. She will announce further live and remix plans surrounding ‘Selectadisc’ shortly.
