Akimbo always approaches the decks with a unique ear for eclectic blends and a knack for energetic performance to move a crowd.
On a foundation of world sounds from Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean, Akimbo’s selections extend onward to London via Tel Aviv, always hunting for inspired and original dance music.
Akimbo (Rhylon Durham) was a participant of the Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid, where he performed live with drums and machines. RBMA has continued to support his projects, especially his work with Korean musicians.
In 2016, Akimbo started the record label Tonal Unity, which focuses on neo-traditional sounds from Asia and beyond.
Initially using Korean traditional instruments as a basis, the label releases his own work and that of other local and international producers. Heading in a post-tribal direction, the releases take inspiration from house, leftfield, and various genres of world-flavored club music.
