Navigate EP


Manchester's worst-kept secret, and transversely one of the city's most exciting agents of forward-thinking UK dance music. Yes, Akkord are an industry dirty secret (that might well be out by the time this goes to print), but boy do they back it up. This four-track EP explodes out of the speakers with more urban vitriol than a pitbull on gunpowder, but unlike the glut of other garage x techno x d&b hybrids, this sings with power, angst and most importantly, the vibrant soul of the UK underground. Essential.
