Dropping today via Dimensions Recordings’, the boundary breaking imprint's fifth release see's Istanbul native, KEREM AKDAG release his self-titled debut album. This beautiful, 8 track LP from Dimensions Recordings is a must have for the discerning record collector. Bright and timeless, ‘Kerem Akdag’ is equally effective in the club as it is at home. Now, making his UK debut to launch the album, Kerem's already made a stamp on the UK scene, appearing South London's Balamii Radio, and forthcoming Red Bull Studio sessions. There's a very special party tonight in new Hackney hotspot, the Glove that Fits, where Kerem will perform.

Across eight tracks, Kerem demonstrates a breadth of skills that many artists would work a lifetime to achieve. From the stepping beats of ‘When I Think Of You’ to his subtle vocal layers on ‘Isolated’ through to the woozy beach vibes of ‘Sultan’ into the squelching, rasping synths of ‘Unite’, it’s clear that there is very little left outside of Kerem’s arsenal. The album rounds out fittingly with ‘Drums Please’, which perfectly displays Kerem’s jazz tendencies, a slow grooving track whose crescendo of stabs and drums create a song that’s more powerful than its parts.
