Akabu: The Phuture Ain't What It Used To Be

Joey Negro

Prolific DJ and producer Dave Lee has unveiled details for his next full-length, entitled The Phuture Ain't What It Used to Be.

Lee has released his fair share of albums over the past two decades, most famously as Joey Negro and The Sunburst Band, but The Phuture... will be his first as Akabu, a guise he's used off and on since 2000. According to Lee, the new LP shows him moving away from the organic and live sounds of his other monikers for something a bit more, well, futuristic. "After a year producing disco I wanted to do something more electronic and utilize some of the great modern studio technology that's out there," he says. "I've still tried to attempt to inject some of the excitement of live players and musicality into the electronic music I produce."

A raft of collaborators appear on the album, including Berlin-based producer Andre Lodemann, Chicago-based artist Foremost Poets and current Incognito frontman Tony Momrelle. Lee will release the record via his own imprint, Z Records.
