Boomkat Product Review
*Upfront Exclusive* Rolling off rave reviews of their debut, Akkord deploy their 2nd, highly anticipated missive. They've played a select handful of live shows since that debut release but their identity remains the preserve of those in the know. For this 2nd excursion, they factor clinical Garage-Techno rollidge with lush field recordings to simulate a dreamy, synaesthetic sort of orbital rave vibe, a kind of pastoral adjunct to Burial's emotive impressionism, dreaming of warehouses and sticky basements from rural peripheries. They're confidently taking their sound to new and intriguing interzones beyond the functionalism of mere DJ tools, whilst keeping the 'floor locked firmly in their sights. We'll put our money on the table and say that this one is better than the last and entirely worthy of your attentions.
