Akkord - Review of their 1st EP on boomkat ---

Sterling debut release from the enigmatic Δkkord collective based in the peripheries of Manchester. For now, the provenance of their identity will be on a need-to-know basis: their music will yield more than names could inform. These three tracks are a distillation of their passions for "minimalism, art, design, mathematics and sacred geometry", and aesthetically occupy darker ground in the shade of the Autonomic sound. Checking in with the spectral robo-ragga of 'The Drums' - sounding something like Burial meets dBridge - they shapeshift into rolling Electro-Ruffige a la Boddika on 'Renewal' catalysed by muscular, rippling arpeggios and pointillist percussions, while 'Back & Forth' engages with tensely constructed Electro-step hyperspace. We're sure you'll agree; it's a strong look.
