Akase – Rust

Formed in Leeds, written in London and produced in Berlin, this collaborative project between Midland and Robbie Redway has been a long time in the making. Not only does the idea of Midland moving away from the dancefloor prove to be an intriguing one, excitement levels were heightened when we heard Ewan Pearson was to be the man at the production helm.

Akase are now set to release their full length debut album later this year on !K7 Records, and ‘Rust’ is the first taster from this. It’s a sombre yet stirring number that whets the appetite nicely for what’s to come. Reports of their debut gig at Corsica Studios last year road-testing their repertoire were all superlative, so stay tuned to hear of plans to play live.

Midland’s provided the remix for the B-side to ‘Rust’, something also to keep your eyes peeled for. Exciting times.
