    Outside 4th century BC Athens, in grove of sacred olive trees dedicated to Athena, Plato's Akademia flourished. So named in honor of the Athenian hero, Akademos, the great thinkers of the era, convened to progress their fields of study. Today, Chicago dubstep producer, aKademy is steady making advances in a different and altogether darker set of arts and sciences. Akademy's early work with New York City's Proper Villains (Southern Fried/Nightshifters/Flamin' Hotz) showed immediate promise and piqued wide interest in his work from many of the strongest voices for the movement. Yet the identity of Akademy remains publicly unknown. With notes ranging from Squarepusher to Pantera informing his style (in addition to the more traditional elements of dubstep) his first single "Darknesses" wove these ideas into a compelling first glimpse at the future of a genre. Now busy at work, crafting his next missive, aKademy's pupils remain rapt in attention, awaiting the next lesson.
