Brixton up-and-comer GAIKA is primed and ready for a heavy summer, with a world tour and his brand new Security mixtape on the way. Featured on the April 21st release is the lead single 'PVMD' featuring one of the mixtape's many guests Mista Silva.

The collection of tracks emerged from GAIKA's revisiting of his Jamaican and Grenadian heritage, expanding an explosive array of sound ideas. On the mixtape, he writes, "Security is the anthropology of 'burner phones cast in gold, late night shebeens in the ends where everyone is drinking premium spirits in a brokedown flat."
