Copenhagen's Echocord returns with a long player from Mathimidori, titled Akebono and comprised of ten original compositions. Mathimidori, better known by most as Mathias Kaden, has been using this alias as a way to showcase his take on dub-leaning, minimalistic, and refined techno via labels such as Dorian Paic's Raum Musik, Tokyo's Mule Musiq, and Berlin's Ornaments. Here though he delivers his debut long player under the guise and fittingly the LP will be released via esteemed dub techno imprint Echocord, home to releases from the likes of STL, Deepchord, Fluxion, XDB, and Forest Drive West. Across Akebono, Mathimidori delivers hazy, spaced-out instrumentals like "Maiia", "Ork", and "Soso" while tracks like "Asaka" and "Shao" offer a darker approach. The project also welcomes an assortment of collaborations such as opening track "Java" alongside Spain's Pulshar, "Kiok" featuring Japanese artist Tomomi Ukumori and "Kobe" with Germany's Rhauder which all lean towards downtempo dub territories. Also featured are Sakura who provides spoken word vocals for "Akebono" and Shoco who joins Mathimidori for the ambient leaning album conclusion "Akari". Transparent red vinyl.
