Akin - Finite

Slime heads down under once again to welcome to the label UK producer Akin. Currently residing in Australia, his deep melodic style fits right into his surrogate homeland musical renaissance – we’re not sure what’s in the water over there but whatever it is we’d like some, as there seems to be some incredibly talented new producers emerging right now from its shores. Akin is no exception to this, with a way with a melody that will have you in the palm of his hand.

‘Jaded’ drifts in on a subtle garage groove, with delicious female vocals echoing through the mix and light melodic touches spreading ito the rhythm with beguiling ease. A perfect soundtrack for rain-soaked autumnal nights.

‘Longing’ switches gears with a foray into liquid D&B styles, melancholy chords riding high in the mix with glittering piano keys and FX amongst a strong vocal sample that fits the track perfectly.

‘You Don’t Know’ flips back to a strung-out 2-step style, with plaintive violins drenched over honeyed female vocals and skittering percussion that washes over you like a warm summer breeze.
