Akela: Fast Soul Music with Teeth.
Matt Saunders’ latest project, Akela, infuses multiple genres on the warmer side of Bass Music, weaving groovy love stories with happy-go-lucky dancefloor bounciness. Be it House, UK Garage, Dubstep, Drum & Bass or anything else that fits the mood, Akela’s sound envelops the listener with a warm blanket of subsonic affection and intuitive funkiness. Shaping his sets to complement the environment in which they’re played, Akela draws from well over a decade of DJ experience in Bass Music, and his track selections from the early days of House right the way up to the spankiest new Garage show exactly that. Akela creates positive moods, compelling short stories, and satisfied grins with his careful attention to minute sonic details, commanding the listener’s attention and unconscious wiggling of the pants area.
