Akira Kiteshi has carved a special place for himself in the hearts of many by skewing the instant gratification of Dubstep bangers to preserve his roots in the wonky and broken. In the run up to his forthcoming album Akira Kiteshi throws yet another curve ball into the face of those who seek to label and limit the electronic music pioneer. “Transmission” is a slice of hands in the air euphoric anthemia in the key of Joy O or Jamie XX. “Give It Up” In yet another massive turn left AK twists the beats into UK Funkee mode to produce yet more dancefloor detonation. It’s now getting some serious radio play from the likes of Huw Stephens Radio 1,  Mary Anne Hobbs XFM, Jackmaster, Fantastic Mr Fox, Nick Grimshaw Radio 1 , Kissy Sellout Radio 1, Mistajam 1Xtra, Eddy Temple Morris XFM , John Kennedy XFM Joy O or Jamie XX.
