Akcent – That’s My Name
Based in 2001, AKCENT is one of the best bands Romania has ever had. Their debut album – In culori (In Bright Colors) went Gold and Platinum in a very short time from its release in January 2001 and their debut single Ti-am Promis (I Promised you) made history…
After a long perios of gigs, in 2003 the boys make a big comeback with the new album 100 BPM. The title of the album has a special meaning, as 100 BPM is the rhythm of the heart during a kiss. The first single was Buchet de trandafiri (Rose Bouquet) followed by the beautiful ballad – Suflet pereche (Soul Mate), two very different but at the same time entertaining and interesting videos.
2004 was for Akcent the year that brought them a contract with Media Records Italy-the home of Gigi D’agostino. Their song Azi plang numai eu (I’m the only one crying today) iwas featured on the successful international compilation released by Gigi D’agostino “Benessere”.
Their third album relased in Romania was also a success. The single Poveste de viata (Life story) reached high places in the charts.
Dragoste de inchiriat (Kylie, as known all over Europe), the first single from their 2005 LP has blown away Romanian charts, but the big difference between this single and the previous ones is that it made AKCENT internationally famous, because it reached first places in music charts in countries like The Netherlands, France, Sweden, Finalnd, Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria.
Soon after that they released their international debut album “French Kiss with Kylie”, which included the hits “Kylie”, “JoKero” and “French Kiss” at the end of the summer of 2006. The album also included two ballads written by none other than Nicole Formescu, famous for the hits she wrote for BLUE. Nicole visited Romania once again after many years to meet the guys and record “I Swear” and “4 Seasons In One Day”.
St Petersburg, Moscow and some cities in the far away Siberia were one by one taken by storm by Akcent’s superhits late 2006, consequently the guys spending much time travelling around Russia and spending Christmas in beautiful Moscow.
But it was the time to go back home and finish the recordings for the new album which was released early in 2007, an album created as a tribute to 80s disco music. “King of disco” was the first single and title of the album, the video was shot in Bucharest and it was meant to be a tribute to Madonna’s “Open Your Heart” video. Madonna herself was portrayed in the video, with her “Hung Up” outfit. “King of disco” was a huge success in Romanian and intoxicated their fans all over Europe. The second single off this album was “Let’s Talk About It”, a mid-tempo track with lyrics speaking of relationships. The back-to-70’s video was shot in Romania’s biggest sea-side city, Constanta.
Akcent spent most of the 2007 summer in Poland with many gigs all over the country, meeting fans they used to talk on the internet. Besides Poland, Akcent were also touring again in Russia and Northern Europe. MTV Russia even followed the guys for more days in order to shoot an all-Akcent documentary which they broadcasted several times due to fans’ demand.
In april 2008, Marius Nedelcu decided to leave the band in order to follow a solo career. But AKCENT still remained AKCENT. “Umbrela Ta” (Your Umbrella) had to be released somewhere in may, but due to many problems that apperead in time they never managed to make the song a smash hit and actually release it. It was only featured on their myspace page, and had more than 20,000 plays in just 2 months, a record number for a romanian band.
While touring the last months Adrian, Mihai and Sorin also found the time to write a few more songs for their upcoming album to be released at the end of this year, with a more clubbin’ sound which will keep the dancefloors crowded everywhere. Their new single STAY WITH ME was released in Romania and is still growing and jumping higher and higher through romanian charts. The big surprise is that it will be released in different versions for some countries. Stay tuned to find out more, and until then find and request STAY WITH ME on the nearest radio station.Lasa un mesaj:
