Madrid’s hardware wizard Akenaton returns home with a five-track EP called Conclusions. The Spanish producer and DJ started his musical career in 1999 with only a Roland EG-101 synthesizer to his name. However, a few years later in 2002, he got the Gemini XL 400 turntables and started working on his mixing skills playing throughout Madrid. His releases have been supported by Dave Clarke and Laurent Garnier, and Akenaton is ready to keep capturing listeners’ attention. Akenaton will be releasing his fifth EP featuring five synth-drive tracks via HXAGRM Records.
Solid arpeggiated bass lines are the core element in Akenation’s first track of the EP “Collecting Your Acts.” Melancholic voice washes over a shuffled beat throughout the beat with spacey and hypnotic elements. “Essence And Existence” goes funkier, with a 909 tom groove filled with deep and profound synths.
“Survive” is a classic sci-fi techno exercise with pulsating sounds, asymmetric lines, and components crossing paths along the arrangement. The EP’s fourth track “Secret Shadows” continues in the same vein, with classic grooves. Closing out Akenation’s EP is “Through Your Eyes” giving a timeless vibe filled with pure synthetic tones and solid rhythms creating an exquisite development.
