AK - Metamorphosis
Refreshing is an understatement when it comes to AK’s latest single, “Metamorphosis.” The unique blend of downtempo electronic, chillwave and moments of neo-classical is exactly what I needed to hear this Friday afternoon.
Opening the song is a cool, calm and well placed piano chords that echo throughout the core of the track. Surrounding it is a sub bass that pairs extraordinarily well with it. Something about the opposites of these two sounds gives it a special sorta flair, one that I was immediately drawn into upon my first listen.
For those of you who enjoy Bonobo, Kiasmos or Feverkin, I think you’ll absolutely love AK’s work as “Metamorphosis” takes you on an unforgettable journey.
Yu Yi is the result of a year of ‘figuring out my sound.’ Aside from the emotional attachment I have for this piece of music it really was a series of trail and errors of finding the right musicians, getting the right tone and producing it to a place that I was happy with it.
Enjoy these new hallucinations from no known author; a machined mega-puzzle of miscalculated patterns, automatic failures and lost coffee house betas.

And then there’s the unique way Tourist integrates vocal samples - it’s as if they become an instrument all on their own, floating throughout the track giving another beautiful layer of depth to the already astounding song.
There’s something about the vocal melodies that transports me back to warm summer evenings where there was a care in the world.
