Italian electronic duo Aki Bergen & Richter continue their creative voyage into the world of synthtopia joining forces with talented Roman vocalist Luben on their new ‘Moments In Time EP‘ for Favouritizm. Featuring 2 brand new songs, ‘In A Distant Place’ and ‘Falling’, both are gloriously steeped in retro electronica fused with shoegazey indie dance sensibilities, topped with enchanting melancholy drenched vocals from Luben.
Simone and Gabri are long term friends who share the same musical passions, so perhaps it was inevitable that they would eventually join forces in the studio. Producing under the artist names of Aki Bergen and Richter, their strengths lay embedded in their abilities to complement and inspire each other. Both artists have enjoyed exploring a wide variety of genres over the years and each stemmed their initial love of electronic music during the 90’s European Techno movement. Since then, they have spent time fine tuning their producing, composing and DJ skills, both with a common attraction to anything with a deep groove or melodic sound. Some of the artists they have worked alongside include, Dubfire, Noir, Miguel Migs, Oliver Schories, D.O.N.S and Massive Attack, releasing on labels such as Lauter Unfug, Tretmuehle, Budenzauber and their own label Neurotraxx. Their music has received support from dance music heavyweights such as Marco Carola, Ame, Richie Hawtin and Dixon, among others.
