The first track „Sideway Swing“ enhanced with the plucking bass sound spreads a well-being atmosphere comparable to Adam F’s D&B classic „Circles“. In a majestical way Kenji captures listeners explicitly to the smoothing sound of the shuffling summernight-tune called „Final Approach“. As always Naoki is once again unbeatable when he uses female vocals which are combined and crossed from a track to a song. Perfect examples are the Electro-influenced „Tu Mirada“ and the smooth jazzy daydream „CeNuage“. Two more highlights on AKATOMBO are the hauntingly beautiful „You Make Me Whole“ and the lyrical severe „Stakes Are High“ which is sung by Carla Vallet with her tender voice, depicting the world’s uncertain political situation.
