UVA's Starship Studio. Akimi's debut single, Schadenfreude, was recorded in this studio across a lenghty 12 hour session. It was the first time Akimi and her producer worked together. What resulted is her most popular release to date.
Key instruments make up Akimi's sound that listeners often struggle to place into one genre. Can you guess what they are?
