Their style is a mix of sound elements from different kinds of music, so it is not possible to put acropod into a specialized genre. It is well-produced music with the sense of atmospheric, melancholic, groovy, and melodic feeling but with a touch of coolness and cosiness After Acropod have spent a lot of hours working in their studios and developing their sound and production skills now their music can be checked in the album called “Tales Beyond the Unknown” by Klik Records and several other tracks at www.elusivesounds.com. Their album came out in the year 2005.
