FKOFd003 features the astonishing 140 bass music sounds of FKOF fam AKX…
“We thought it’d be worth ending FKOFd’s 2013 with a producer we’ve been fans of through the end of one alias and the birth of another. Nottingham’s AKX first caught our attention with his deeper productions under the Gutcha moniker, but it was Arion Oates’ move to the more ambient side of 140 that really caused us to sit up and take note.
“Although FKOFd003 is AKX’s debut EP, the release’s four tunes demonstrate just how talented the producer is – and how polished his sound has become. With sounds reminiscent of early Kahn and Jamie XX but very much with his own flavour, AKX opens the EP with the short but sweet ‘Part One (Sunlight)’, a track that evokes summer strolls through sunshine-speckled woodland. Fan favourites ‘Define’ and ‘Dragonfly’ step things up a notch while staying true to Arion’s signature sound. Last but definitely not least, ‘Tiger Eye’ brings the release to a close with a lively and progressive vibe that still manages to pack an inviting sub-driven warmth.”
FKOFd003 is out via Juno on 02/12/13 and goes on general release from all good electronic retailers from the 16/12/13.
And if you missed the news when we announced the first two releases, Korrupt and I will be looking after it for the foreseeable future – but the rest of the FKOF gang will be keeping an eye and an ear out for exciting bass-led music. Please send us your music to:
We’ll do our best to listen to it all!
Thank you to everyone who’s supported FKOFd so far – including everyone who’s actually purchased the release from Juno and the other retailers. I/ we weren’t sure this venture would have legs to stand on but I’m over the moon to be able to say we’re two releases strong and already profitable. Thank you from everyone in the FKOF gang! Thanks and love also to Dubfreq, Subreachers and 11th Hour for FKOFd001 and FKOFd002; couldn’t have done it without you guys!
Peace, love and respect.
