Spanish label NXT recordings keeps maintaining its commitment with the national product on its ninth release, called Play On Words. This work is crafted by Madrid based Retrowaves Records' head-honcho Nacho Zambrano, this time signing it as his alter ego, Akenaton.
Play On Words expresses the artist's admiration for organic sounds and an analogue approach to music. His style is inspired in the rawest, primitive Detroit techno, to which he progressively incorporates every new nuance in order to polish the character inherent to our current scene. The relevance and control of the percussive tracks and the importance that it takes with the rest of textures is also significant for the lower frequencies. This is a vital and very characteristic element in his productions, which increases the sensation of sturdiness.
Another essential component of Akenaton's work is the amalgam of atmospheric ingredients and harmonic lines, an indispensable factor that permeates the productions of this artist.
