Album Notes
Akikaze - Solstice (Spheric Music)

Style: Electronic (Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze)

Dutch artist Pepijn Courant a.k.a. Akikaze (Japanese for autumn wind) shows a long career of creative output, starting with tape releases. After a few years, he changed to CD and his albums were  released by several companies (Audio Works, Criminal Records, Quantum Records and Syngate). Because of his excellent sequences, Akikaze has been a candidate for Spheric Music for a long time. Solstice, his recent 11th work, which was partly introduced at the E-Live festival in 2015, features unique sequencer patterns once again. The album was inspired by weather phenomena.

Solstice evokes a special atmosphere, due to the use of old-fashioned sounds. You can hear synth sounds of the 70s and 80s combined with sequences typical of Akikaze. Compared to other Berlin School releases, Akikaze’s provide more variety in sound and tone patterns. Especially the melodic and harmonically changing sequences have a special charm while guitar and old synthesizer sounds in the interludes  build a romantic, melancholic ambience.  A real nostalgic experience which is a pleasure to listen to!
