Review

One of Berlin’s finest DJ and producer teams - AKA AKA - are back on Stil vor Talent with their first full on 12″ that showcases three fresh tracks, straight for the floor. Things kick off with title track “Ich & Du” (Me & You) where AKA AKA invite everybody on the dancefloor to sing along to this smooth deep and melodic vocal that is performed by Umami. Over a tantalisingly smooth tech-house loop the track slowly ushers everyone into musical nirvana while still letting off enough steam on the breakdown to make this track a very unique peak time tech-house-fest. Hit! Next up on the flip is “4 Fäuste für ein Halleluja” which was already released last summer to great acclaim on the digital sublabel of Koletzki’s label. Now on vinyl it sounds even better: a chunky kick drum and those signature percussions AKA AKA are known for plus some great chopped up vocals. If the title is reminiscent of Bud Spencer’s fight-up films, these are also represented in the sounds: some great foley effects of people getting smacked add to the creative percussions on this slow techy burner. Last up is “Sandpiper", the perfect track for the summer afterhour: happy Southern guitars and some sped-up singing over a slightly faster groove teleport us directly on the beach dancing along to AKA AKA’s happy tech.
