Following their monstrous month of April which saw the release of two EPs, a couple of remixes and a massive collaboration with Subtronics, Akeos has continued to demonstrate that their arsenal of unreleased tunes is limitless with more recent releases on Gud Vibrations and Bassrush. Showing no signs of slowing down, the Pennsylvania-based producer returns to Never Say Die: Black Label with a riddim hybrid titled ‘Derma Crush’ unlike anything out right now.
Evidently focusing on creating an enthralling introduction just as much as a core-shattering drop section, Akeos hooks you from the get-go with a lively, melodic opening before unleashing all fury at the fifty-second mark. Combining snippets of cheerfulness with gruelling sound design is quintessential to Akeos’ sound, and this signature is executed to perfection in ‘Derma Crush,’ delivering a unique balance between beauty and bass once again. Don’t miss ‘Derma Crush’ below.
