Hailing from Australia is Akurei, the lo-fi electronic producer releasing consistently solid music. For his first release of 2020 is one of three upcoming EP releases he has planned for the year, titled SEROTONIN.
Immediately after his September EP in 2019, Akurei immediately headed straight to the studio to work on new material, but nothing really came together until February when he took off on a trip with two of his friends who have also found themselves on River Beats: Golden Vessel and Emerson Leif.
According to Akurei, “SEROTONIN,” the title track of this project, was one of the first tracks to come together from their writing trip together to regional Queensland.
“Lyrically it covers the morning after a big night; I’m a sucker for peer pressure on a night out, “SEROTONIN” is about the next day, when you don’t want to get out of bed. The SEROTONIN project is the first of a few I’ve got planned for the year.”
SEROTONIN is also the debut release for the recently launched independent label sumoclic, which is co-owned/operated by both Akurei & Golden Vessel.
