ako (6)

Real Name:
Simeon Soden
Electronic musician and producer Simeon Soden, working as ako, takes the ground breaking 80s minimal wave and infuses their expansive, synthetic soundscapes with the groove of contemporary EDM. The awkward beats and tension of witch house are also a recurring theme, as are techno and IDM. Avoiding the usual clichés of dance and creating something new and thought provoking that explores complex rhythms and minimalism. Key influences include Com Truise, Salem, Clams Casino, Crystal Castles, New Order, Martin Dupont, Aphex Twin as well as vintage and analogue hardware that is part of ako’s unique sound. Performing live he explores both the situational nature of EDM performance and the links between musical and visual rhythms using programmed projected elements, VHS footage and material made with a modified SNES.
