Akase is a new collaborative project from DJ and producer (and Mahogany favourite) Harry Agius aka Midland and vocalist Robbie Redway. It is a beautiful combination.

Redway’s soprano vocals lend a pensive and sultry air to ‘Rust’ – a track well worth spending a few melancholy minutes absorbing. There is just enough evidence of the bass wizardry that has driven Midland up the ranks of the UK’s best producers to ensure the track doesn’t leave you blue.

As a creative mix its a perfect fit, and one that I have no doubt will be fruitful territory for further moving, sonic goodness and live performances. Akase’s full debut LP is out on !K7 Records soon.
