About a year ago, I noticed a new face among the many producers that appear on SoundCloud constantly. Akeedro happens to be the name that belongs to that face. From the start, Akeedro’s sound reminded me of one of my favorite current producers at the time and Potholes regular Ohbliv. Both of share a lot of similarities: their 80’s song sample flips are always on point, they are into VHS/lo-fi imagery and are SP-404 sampler aficionados. This past June, Akeedro asked Ohbliv the following simple question: Ableedro or Akeebliv? Ohbliv then answered back with Ohbleedro, and the duo was born. The two recently released a self-titled album which features their “dirteesoul” loops.
