Akcent (pronounced "ascent"; originally a wordplay on "accent") is a Romanian dance pop act whose members sing in Romanian, English and Spanish.
Akcent was founded by Adrian Claudiu Sînă in 1999, along with female vocalist Ramona Barta. At that time, Adrian worked as a DJ at Radio contact. Their debut album Senzatzia, released in 2000 as cassette only, was electro-pop. It contained the song Ultima Vara (Last summer), which was a summer hit in Romania.
