This June will see Teng label-head Nick Woolfson aka AKRA make a triumphant return to his imprint, with a three track single entitled the ‘Los Peros’ EP.

Nick Woolfson initially rose to fame via his collaborative work with Duncan Stump as Mock & Toof among other aliases, though the past two years have seen Woolfson explore a new venture, namely AKRA. This new material has predominantly been released via his own Teng imprint where he returns here, a label, which since its inception has seen tracks released from the likes of Neville Watson, Nubian Mindz, Paul Mac and Louis Guilliaume.

Title cut ‘Los Peros’ kicks off the EP, a brooding, stripped-back number led by growling saw-wave bass tones, an understated percussive movement and smooth Rhodes chords. Woolfson introduces intricate nuances in the groove and subtle progressions in the elements over the tracks six and a half minute duration to create a gritty and intriguing composition.

‘Cairns’ follows, staying on a similar tip with penetrating bass sounds acting as the driving force, although AKRA instills some additional musicality this time by fusing ethereal pad lines, dreamy arpeggiated sounds and an amalgamation of ethnic vocal samples, again resulting in an intelligent slice of contemporary electronic music.

The release is then rounded off with ‘Walk Don’t Walk’, a classy closing cut which delves into deeper realms, this time tipping the focus towards mellow, dusty atmospherics, a hypnotic acid hook and glitchy resonant synth sounds. While the raw organic percussion and weighty rhythms drive the groove.
