Akosch Warga – “Integrity”

“Integrity” is an atmospheric treat from Berlin-based artist Akosch Warga, representing the final chapter in a recent trilogy of singles. Touting a dub-techno influence amidst its steadily evolving sound, “Integrity” proves riveting throughout. A spacious soundscape is crafted via gentle percussive pitter-patter, sporadic piano pulses, and spacey synth adornments — with gargling synth tones and expanded keys past the three-minute turn excelling in atmosphere and melodic pull.

Thereafter, chilly synth effects weave in and out, gaining momentum with gradual precision. A haunting, enamoring quality is cemented further in the final minute, as the various layers converge and coalescence around a water-like trickle. Melding a knack for inventive electronic soundscapes with a neo-classical piano-touched engrossment, “Integrity” is a thorough success from Akosch Warga.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2023’ Spotify playlist.
