Nextup mix: Akamai – An afternoon with the Owl

Akamai has provided this jackin’ mix exclusively for Nextup Throwback.

Here’s what he had to say: “personally, I love music that has something to follow, whether its vocals, samples, synths etc, I get a little bored sometimes with music that’s too bass driven, I want to hear a song not a bass line. Tracks like Todd Terje’s ‘Spiral’ have such a sense of emotion, I wanted to keep a level that ran throughout. With plenty of ups and downs, the mix transitions from a happy feel good vibe to a darker, more lonely place, but there’s a hopefulness behind it. These tracks get my legs shaking and my emotions racing and at the end of the day, I have fun playing them.”
