AKKAN

AKKAN is the Barcelona based production partnership between prolific natives BeGun and Ocellot. They came together after a magic psychotropic journey and that is reflected in their sounds, which build on a spell of trippy melodies and club-oriented ethnic rhythms fused together with spontaneous single-take recordings. Their explosive and energetic live set has won them some extraordinary reviews from festivals such as Eurosonic, InDoor, C/O Pop, Ozora, Soundeat, Monkey Week, Fort Festival, Vida Festival, Avant Off, Icelandic Airwaves, Sonic Visions amongst others.

At the end of 2019 AKKAN release their first LP that includes 12 tracks and various collaborations by Huaira, Chancha via Circuito, El Búho and Arnau Obiols. The album is a renewed immersion into the fascinating and fresh imagination of the Barcelona duo, an enthralling trip into occult sounds, unpredictable melodies, elastic patterns and colourful synth lines. Far from any stylistic attachments and stereotyped genre labels, the album is a clear commitment with a distinctive and personal sound, bright and sophisticated as well as spontaneous and meticulous. It is a genuine musical journey, which transports us from the sharpness of the desert to the deepness of an imaginary jungle from the very first beat.
