Kerem Akdag – Drums please

Live at the Red Bull Studios London

The fifth release on our 'Dimensions Recordings' label stepped into the world of the longplayer with Istanbul native, Kerem Akdags’s self titled debut album.

Across eight tracks Kerem demonstrates a breadth of skills that most artists would work a lifetime to achieve. From the stepping beats of ‘When I Think Of You’ to his subtle vocal layers on ‘Isolated’ and from the woozy beach vibes of ‘Sultan’ to the squelching, rasping synths of ‘Unite’ it’s clear that there’s very little that’s outside of Kerem’s arsenal.

The album rounds out fittingly with ‘Drums Please’, which perfectly displays Kerem’s jazz tendencies, a slow grooving track whose crescendo of stabs and drums create a song that’s more powerful than its parts. You can see it in action below where the Balamii Radio crew followed him down to Red Bull Studios to capture some of the magic.
