AYAKARA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 21 August 2016, Ayakara

Ayakara have developed quite a fanbase in Edinburgh, since forming in 2015 while still at school. The Leithers have released three EPs and are establishing a reputation for their live shows, which often involve audience participation.

With a pacey sound which draws on everything from 1960s garage to 1990s indie rock, the quintet’s next release Bitter Kiss, is likely to win new converts, in part thanks to its musical nod to The Strokes. The single is due to coincide with the band’s latest tour which begins in Dundee on 10 September and ends in London on 24 September.

INKKE Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 14 August 2016, Inkke

Producer Inkke (aka Russell Patterson) has been carving out a respectable name for himself on the Glasgow scene, running his FWDK club night at Glasgow School of Art and providing local DJs with a steady stream of music.

Meanwhile, further afield his own sets have been aired on everything from NRK (Norway’s equivalent of the BBC) to Prague station Radio Wave.
Previous offerings boast a sparse electronic sound which strays into jazz on the track Euphoric Acid, and incorporates elements of early nineties rave on Hardcore. And while his most recent ep, Secret Palace, continues the minimalistic tendency, it has a playful, sound-design component

Recently released on LuckyMe Records, it is a further seal of approval coming from the team which launched the careers of leading Scottish electronic acts Hudson Mohawke, Rustie and S-Type. Inkke is also due to appear on the bill of the label’s festival extravaganza, which takes place at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s venue on 19 August. Be prepared for a quality experience.
