Alex Waitoa known as ‘Akcept’, hailing from Christchurch, New Zealand; started his forays into music during his high school years, using only the faculties which were provided. Since then this talented young producer has been making waves within the 140 community. Landing his productions on such labels as Dank n Dirty Dubz and FatKidOnFire has gained him ongoing support from the likes of N-Type, Truth, J:Kenzo, and Blackdown (Keysound) - If you haven’t heard of Akcept, now is the time to get to know.

Recent times have seen the build up of a strong musical relationship with fellow New Zealander ‘Headland’ and the two have been tearing up systems on their side of the world ever since. The two are fast becoming the ones to watch within the New Zealand scene amongst heavy hitters like Truth, Perverse and Olie Bassweight.

Since we first heard of Alex he’s been carving out his own unique rhythm based heavily on the deeper, dubber side of the tech dubstep sound. This EP stands true to that statement, showcasing the sub heavy swung beats that are gaining him recognition across the globe.

Forgotten EP

The ‘Forgotten EP’ is absolutely awash with the kind of dub delays, sub swells and scattered offbeat rhythms expected from a release set to leave such an impact on the ‘future dub’ scene. Akcept has truly come into his own with a fresh wave of creativity inspired by the sounds which bore the origins of what we now call Dubstep.

‘Transit’ is the mover and shaker of the EP with rolling 808 subs leaving a deep impact on the listener, the sound of a ticking clock is one of the signatures on this track while silky smooth reverberated guitar licks keep things fresh on the top end.

Watch out for the pitch bending sub madness delivered by ‘Madman’. This track has some serious swing accented by dub bleeps and the backing bongo rhythms.

The title track of the EP ‘Forgotten’ is marked by it’s notably eerie speech samples and mid-eastern instrumentation. Delays on the drums play a key part in the in the rhythmic arrangement but it’s the melodies on this one that will stay running through your head.

A strong future lies ahead for Akcept, which will hopefully see more releases from himself on Instigate Recordings.
