Various (Sascha Dive, Superlounge…) – 10 Years of Akbal Music – 12″ (AKBALMUSIC_VINYL02)
Akbal Music has now been turning out essential dance music for a whole ten years and to celebrate this milestone the label puts out a vinyl only release from a fine selection of contemporary artists.
Vinyl only treat starts from long time German talent Sascha Dive, the Deep Vibes boss’s ‘Lab#4’ is a quick and prickly number that sucks you into a shady groove underpinned with real bass menace.
Next up is Superlounge with Uluwatu Dub. The track starts swiftly with clever percussions and a lush pad quickly to progress with several drums rhythms into the bass that will keep the listeners tuned into its groove.
Romanian Mano Andrei appears with a sleek and stripped back tune that is full of electronic soul and infectiously bumpy drums and hypnotic vibes.
Finally minimal master Eastenderz and CatchRecordings associate Doubtingthomas is next with his vinyl only offering, going for a much more intricate, synthetic, richly designed deep house tune that is soft, succulent and truly sublime.
This is a fulsome package that packs plenty of punch and showcases exactly the sort of quality dance music that Akbal Music has been, and will always be, about.
