Stockholm University going digital

on 9th Oct 2014

Universities are often a juxtaposition of the new and the old, the traditional and the groundbreaking. Tweedy grey-bearded professors working alongside tech-savvy hipsters. Ivy-covered walls leading to glass and steel additions. But one area where a 21st century university can’t be traditional is its technology. That’s why Stockholm University turned to AKG when it was time to upgrade the technology in its lecture halls.


Soulmate rely on the WMS40 Mini



Feeling the blues.

Posted on 07th October 2014

Anyone could be excused for doing a double take upon hearing about an Indian blues band. Isn’t India the land of sitars, tablas and the outrageously upbeat pop of Bollywood? Indeed, it is. But the country’s thriving music scene also includes dozens of rock, blues and heavy metal bands, and among the hottest is AKG supporter Soulmate, an Indian blues band that has performed worldwide.

Cabaret Pop

Posted on 12th August 2014

“Pop noir” – that’s what German singer songwriter SCHMIDT calls her style. “Berlin sex appeal”, “deep blue pop”, “grandiose cabaret pop” – these are labels the media came up with as they scrambled to describe the pop and jazz singer following the debut of her first full-length album, “Femme SCHMIDT”, in the spring of 2012. But perhaps it was the German edition of Elle that best conveyed how different this 23-year-old singer and AKG artist is.

Mozes and The Firstborn - I Got Skills

Garage Rock From Eindhoven

on 24th July 2014

On a sunny, tree-lined street in a Vienna park, four twenty-something men plant themselves in the middle of the road, two with guitar in hand. As cyclists, joggers and horse carriages amble by, the four count down and start to perform as a video crew records it all. But these aren’t street musicians. It’s Mozes and The Firstborn.

Niladri Kumar

Genre-bending virtuoso

Posted on 17th July 2014

It’s not unusual for a musician, after many years of releasing music in a specific genre, to dabble in something completely different. But few have succeeded in building a career around crisscrossing from one genre to another, and fewer still have been as highly regarded for their achievements as has Niladri Kumar. An award-winning world musician, Niladri is considered both a sitar and zitar virtuoso, the later a combination sitar and guitar and Niladri’s own creation amplified by an AKG miniature pickup.
