akuratyde is a musician driven by a passion to create and has spent his life expressing his talents in a variety of media. based on the west coast us, akuratyde has drawn his inspiration both from southern california's breathtaking panoramic landscapes and his own, personal struggles.
akuratyde's goal is to make music that strikes an emotional chord in his listeners. incorporating his affinity for reverb soaked synthesizers and dreamy guitar riffs akuratyde's music is the perfect mix of melodic hooks and immersive beats. he has created something that is simultaneously raw and passion-filled, with subtle beautiful undertones that are guaranteed to move the listener.
'past lives' is a deeply personal collection of work, drawn from moments and experiences in the artist's own life. the album is an emotive work that celebrates wonderment, intimately articulates loss, and reflects on meaning and purpose.
stylistically, 'past lives' echoes some of the autonomic movement's richer moments, with hand-crafted synths and akuratyde's own guitar-playing skills draped lovingly over each track. a supporting cast of glitched-out percussion, fragmented vocals and warping bass completes the ensemble.
