So what to tell you about AKIRA, yes that’s his real name.
He has been playing for 15 years now and has established himself as a familiar face in the nightlife scene. Starting out as every young dj in his bedroom, playing vinyl records for nights on end and eventually got discovered in a local recordshop, USA Import in Antwerp where he met the right minded people, who gave him the chance to express himself…and that’s exactly what he did.
Playing a blend of old and new, creating outgoing dj sets that stand out in terms of selection and vibe. No genre or style is there to categorize him and that’s just what he wants for the people to be surpirsed when they hear him play.
At the age of 17 he won the Pioneer Pro Dj Contest in Belgium, later earning him a residency at Café d’Anvers and numerous events and festivals in Belgium.
He has travelled abroad in the past few years where he will surely be seen and heard again, mostly booked in London and Amsterdam but he wants to see the world with his music.
“ The Art of selection is the true mark of a good dj “
