AKE (Dj)

AKE (Dj)


Ake was born 1979 in Hamburg, Germany. Raised in a family of musicians he had early contacts with different styles of music and began focussing on american Hip Hop and Synth-Pop. In 1995 he was introduced to Goa Trance by listening to rare mixtapes recorded by Sascha Haske aka Bitmonx. When Goa Trance became more commercial after some years, Ake lost interest in that musical style and looked into many other musical styles. In 2006 he re-discovered Goa Trance for some reason and started recording DJ sets including only tracks released before 1998. Around that time he also discovered the unique sounds of Shadow Fx, Bufo and other talents from the aussie/NZ doof scene. So he started recording progressive sets as well. In 2011 he became a member of Glitchy.Tonic.Records and in 2012 he joined Melting Runes Records. In 2014 he left Glitchy.Tonic.Records officially but is still part of their family anyway. Ake’s favorite style is lush and organic progressive with a dark and tribal touch, so his favorite artists include Slytrance, Shadow Fx, Minimal Criminal, Tekdiffeye, etc. Ake’s styles in DJ sets include oldschool and newschool Goa Trance, Progressive and different styles of tribal/downtempo music. He is currently living in Vienna, Austria.
