Who the hell is this guy? Akurei! I had never heard of the artist until his new single ‘Floating’ popped up in my Soundcloud feed. Upon first listen this was my new favorite track at the moment.
Akurei‘s ‘Floating’ is a dreamy electronic R&B work of art which was produced by Golden Vessel. His soothing vocals float over drum machine styled percussion and swirling synths. Nico Ghost‘s rhythmic rap verse adds some much needed dynamics to the composition. I love seeing artists breach into worlds that remain relatively unexplored in their worlds, and Akurei hit the nail on the head with his take on electronic soul and R&B.
