Itâ€™s hard to believe weâ€™ve taken over two years, and 24 releases, to sign music from New Zealand. Especially given the near stranglehold the country had on bass-led electronic music over the last few years, with the likes of Truth, Perverse, Ghost Note, Epoch, Arkotypes, Headland (and more many) - not to mention Kursk and the Innamind Recordings gang or our Averted Vision family - breaking through. But all is resolved with our 25th EPâ€¦
@akcept's FKOFd025 is available now (just hit the buy link)and will be available from all good electronic retailers from 21/12/15...
1. Akcept - Desert Dubbing
2. Akcept - Cut It
3. Akcept - Panic Attack
4. Akcept - Martyr
â€œChristchurchâ€™s Akcept has been on our radar for a fair amount of time, appearing with new material in a number of FKOF Sessions over the last year or so. Given the quality of Alexâ€™s music, much like the rest of his Kiwi brethren - weâ€™re surprised his release on our imprint is his solo debut. But thatâ€™s no bad thing; as weâ€™re always happy to launch new talent!
â€œWeâ€™d be hard pushed to select any of the four tunes on FKOFd025 as clear favourites. The release embodies what weâ€™ve come to love about Alexâ€™s music; diverse and adventurous sounds that feel as comfortable together as they do apart. The EP opens with 'Desert Dubbing', a tune Korruptâ€™s been testing whenever the opportunity presents itself. Itâ€™s yet to disappoint. 'Cut It' follows - with its wicked sample, wheeling sub and floaty synths. 'Panic Attack' evokes an almost Perverse-esque vibe with its haunting atmospherics and relentlessly aggressive low end. If you canâ€™t experience this on a system, you donâ€™t know what youâ€™re missing. Last, but definitely not least, we have 'Martyr'. It feels like the most experimental inclusion on the record - with its future-facing vibe - but still epitomises the producerâ€™s ability to craft something truly special. Itâ€™s a tune that feels at home at 11pm opening the night - and again at 6am as the sun rises.
â€œItâ€™s something we can say of any new producer we work with, but having spent time listening Akceptâ€™s tunes, we reckon Alex has an incredible future ahead of him. We donâ€™t doubt youâ€™ll be heading more from him - so get to knowâ€¦â€
