Two exquistive remixes from Akuratyde's 2nd album Home Movies. Tim Reaper puts his inimitable Jungle spin on the sleeper hit "Evergreen", while Wardown once again strikes the gauzy middle ground between melancholy and euphoria that saturated his LP.
"Home Movies sees Akuratyde pushing his songwriting further than before, collaborating with vocalists for the first time as a solo artist and with an increased focus on his trademark dreamy synthesizer melodies, subtle guitar stylings, and glitched-out rhythms."
"Night Drive was inspired by the producer’s excursions through Los Angeles after dark. Akuratyde dons his Vex Seven alias on the b-side and offers up a moody minimal techno remix of the title track."
"Four remixes spanning a wide range of drum & bass styles, from the throwback jungle sounds of Method One’s take on “Lost Summer” to the funky liquid groove of Random Movement’s rework of “Plume”. Kharm offers up a melancholy remix of “Past Lives”, while Margari’s Kid takes on the epic collaboration with Tellus, “Tides”."
"Modern Conveniences officially launches with Redesigned Vol. 1: four signature pieces from Akuratyde’s back catalogue thoughtfully reworked by Kid Drama, Silent Dust, Jaskin & Uneven, and 3VS."
"Comprising four of his signature lush, Autonomic-tinged pieces, the EP features a collaboration with radical Russian sonic-scientist, Bop and a re-imagining of 'Time Left Behind', from his 2015 EP on BMTM."
"Past Lives is a deeply personal collection of work, drawn from moments and experiences in the artist's own life. The album is an emotive work that celebrates wonderment, intimately articulates loss, and reflects on meaning and purpose."
"Spread over 6 tracks, from experimental soft electronics to beautiful liquid and harder edged sounds, this remix EP is a true expedition in creative D&B."
"Akuratyde's music is delicate in the extreme, existing on the very outer edges of Drum & Bass and relying on lullaby-esque melodies rather than pounding drums to communicate its message."
Akuratyde’s debut EP on Silk Recordings has been described as, “moody, emotive, and above all else, tells the listener a story.”
