CHOON OF THE DAY: "DESTINY" - Akiine
Despite the fact Color Station released Akiine's hypnotising "Destiny" back in March it was only brought to my attention today (thanks Alex!). With "Destiny" we head for an aural expedition into gritty future R&B soundscapes flavoured with hauntingly broken beats, layers of soulful and vocoder-distorted vocals and incalculable sound effects. It all has a rather powerful effect sonically, echoing some of FKA Twigs' works which is only a good thing. I am mesmerised by this new Swedish songstress.
