Bloodcurdling, energetic and emotional with a touch of dramatism at times, Akraan’s music could not be compressed into a single predefined genre, rather, it would be similar to the collision of two neutron stars. What makes his sound unmistakable is the extensive use and choice of instruments. The way they fusion with each other in the 3D sound field bring a new perspective to drum and bass.
Zoltan Papp, by his given name, began his musical odyssey early in his childood, when the Architect presented himself in the form of an electric toy piano. Since then, he recorded over 1600 songs, some of them having a great impact on the romanian electronic dance music scene, owned his own record label and developed a new sound technology. After some years in the industry, still longing for a sound called home, he realised that the road taken was not the one that suited his vision. That was when Akraan came to birth, always reinventing himself as he dives deeper into the fascinating language of DNB.
After finding the proper environment to translate his existential turmoil into music, Akraan is now recording his first album, which will be called Pixels. As he stated, he chose the name of the album, „to emphasize that every one of us, is merely a pixel in the magnificent picture that is life” and through his music he wishes to deliver a message for oneness and a reminder that „we are all connected with an invisible wire to the root of knowledge, we share the same energy which lights our path to destiny compressing time and space to Pure Essence. Unreachable distance will open new way to a creative union and will bring us a vision where technology helps spirituality”.
