Azekel Pays A Price With 'Sold My Love'
With a musical vision as comprehensive and singular as his own, U.K. singer/songwriter/producer Azekel has firmly established himself in the minds of critics and fans alike over the last couple of years. Intricate and sophisticated, his avant-garde, eclectically-inspired experimentation with the boundaries of r&b has made for some compelling listening on tracks such as 'Mad About The Boy' and 'New Romance'. Ahead of his appearance on the BBC Introducing stage at this year's Glastonbury, Azekel has been whetting the appetite of fans with releases from his upcoming Thunderlightning Records released EP, 'Raw Vol. 1'. His latest, 'Sold My Love', reminds that behind the often slick synth shimmer and low end churn of progressive musical mindset, beats an emotive, soulful essence. With a pensive piano and muted snare bathing a spectral haze, Azekel's honeyed falsetto conjures an elegiac, poignant rumination on the stark, emotional realities of love's passing.
