LIVE SUNDAY: AKUFEN (2007)

Here’s a recent mix from French-Canadian DJ and producer Marc Leclair, a.k.a. Akufen. The set was recorded live at Soundstream @ Club Rogue in Dublin, Ireland in December 2007.

 

Akufen is a Montreal Canadian who makes minimal house. His closest equivalent is the UK’s Matthew Herbert. This means moments of genius are interspersed with stuff that is either phenomenally dull or makes you want to stab your ears with a pencil. It is therefore appropriate that Leclair’s pseudonym comes from the French word for tinnitus (ringing of the ears), acouphène. More details about Akufen in a previous post.

I found this set at Filter 27.com. Filter27, founded by Pavol Sulek in 2006, is a blog devoted exclusively to electronic music, global dance culture and everything in between. It’s a big file and so will stay up as long as my bandwidth will stand it.
