Akito is a name that shouldn’t need much of an introduction for our readers… The stalwart champion of the London club scene is readying his debut album for release later this month via Tight Knit Records. ‘Gone Again’ swerves seamlessly from dancehall to sino-grime to hard drum workouts in a journey that chronicles the highs and lows of euphoric, sleep-free weekends and the eventual moment when it all catches up with you.
‘Rollover’ is a track which is bound to really turn heads and move limbs in the club. Akito works up a visceral dose of unrelenting percussion and ‘bubbly’ samples (for lack of a better word); in a master-class in pacey and dynamic songwriting.
‘Gone Again’ is available on vinyl and digitally from 16th November.
