AKA Block Teams up with SYPS To release Tremendous "The First Day Of Spring: LUST EP"
AKA Block is a professional chameleon decending from the trib of bedroom producers & songwriters. However, Block’s artistry is not limited to his sonic pallet but stretches to the canvas, poetry, film and short stories. He was born & bred in the Netherlands where he creates his songs on the fourth floor overlooking the city centre of Amsterdam. His song topics are as unpredictable as the Dutch weather and are a direct reflection of his odyssey of self improvement and have more recently been shifting to billboards advertising to ‘make love cool again’.
Block’s early darker productions give way to smoother and more tasteful songs as demonstrated with ‘I Want The Days To Crawl’ & ‘Far Side Of The Moon’, which went to rack up an impressive, rapidly growing amount of streams on Spotify. Picking up immediate tastemaker support on BBC Radio 1Xtra, and a full report on his genius by Noisey comparing him to greats like Frank Ocean & Anderson .Paak. Finding homes for his songs in Spotify playlists like BAE, Soul N’ The City, Mellow Bars, A Shot Of Indie and New Music Friday his future release schedule is looking promising to say the least.
Now AKA is back to celebrate the season of flowers with his 2-song-EP ‘The First Day Of Spring: LUST’. Block takes the role of a producer in this release and brings in another emerging star in singer/songwriter Alex ‘SYPS’ Sypsomos. The combination of these two rising stars is something exciting, curiously soulful and undeniably beautiful.
