Buddy Akai

Buddy Akai @ Myspace

Buddy Akai has been making the high heeled, converse stomping, electro popping kiddies dance to their rocking beats since February of 2005. Their sound can be described as a mix of indie/electro/rock. They mix in samples, sequences, arpegiated synths and processed vocals but still they manage to keep it rocking.

Buddy Akai offers a playful reinterpretation of their influences. Ranging from The Rapture to The Killers, their askew spin resurrects classic tones, but speaks only in organic rhythms.

Their show is a must see, an electrifying and energetic experience.

From dance-crazed San Diego scenesters to electro rock bigwigs in LA, Buddy Akai's local and national acclaim abounds.


"these guys are seriously one of the best unkown bands i've ever heard.... (mix the sweet bass lines of Moving Units, add some of Faint inspired electro, and take a 80's inspired vocals... and you have BUDDY AKAI) Now you would think a band with all these elements would suck live..but actually they are one of the best live bands I have seen in a long time... the vocals were spot on..and all the right elements would come along at the right time for each song"
