AHYOKA is the solo Dark Progressive Trance project of Grace M, formed in 2015. Born in France, Ahyoka first got a taste for music at 7 years old, when she started to play the piano. She then took up the guitar and learnt how to play the drums to further develop her musical skills. In 2007, Ahyoka was introduced to electronic music and it is from here that her passion for music started to grow. With encouragement from her friends, Ahyoka decided to take up mixing and bought her first turntables in 2010. Her DJ career was born, playing electro breaks on vinyl. She switched to mixing on CDJs after discovering Progressive Trance. Since her first appearance as a Djane in 2011, Ahyoka had the opportunity to play in many open air parties, clubs and festivals organized across Europe under the name “Pandora”. In 2015, she joined forces with the Danish label Melting Runes Records. In 2016, the adventure continues where she unified with the Israeli label Technophobia Records. She has now branched into music production and is currently working on two live projects under the names “Ahyoka” and “Natural Ritual” (a duo project formed with her partner Hallulaya). She compiled the VA ‘Lupuna’ which was released on Melting Runes Records and is available to buy on Bandcamp and downloadable on Ektoplazm. AHYOKA is a Native American word meaning “she brought happiness”. The aim of this project is to open your senses and consciousness by experiencing deep, emotional and mental sounds. Behind deck’s, Ahyoka manages to express powerful energies and feelings with rumbling bass lines combined with dark twisted and hypnotic sounds. Thank you for following!
