POOLcast 011 - Akatana

The first year of POOLcast comes to an end. After we had artists from many different places on earth, it is time for an inner rest and to prepare for the second year. Talented Akatana from france supports that plan and uses his POOLcast also for a mental preparation of his upcoming Japan tour.

And there could be no better way to do so than with the multi ethnic inspired music of Akatana. The mixture of foreign atmospheres, dreamy recordings and an intelligent use of mesmerizing grooves makes his sound work like a pathfinder through the vast mist of experimental, ambient and minimal music. An area where all kind of shapes and shades sometimes veils the truth behind the music - feelings.

Akatana’s POOLcast issue shows that those missing emotions probably exist in all forms of sound but it's not easy to find the right spot when you rove through this enormous blurry haze. But don't worry, sometimes searching and finding point in the same direction. All you need is patience or just the right person who shows you those pieces.

Let go on an intimate and vivid ramble.
