“Provider of dynamic and energy loaded grooves that drive enjoyable and memorable party atmosphere.”
This is how AKSO describes himself as a DJ. Having grown up recording hip-hop cassette mixtapes, he discovers his love for deep and dirty baselines, captivating grooves, and vocal hooks sat on top of pronounced, movement inducing house beats through pioneers such as Frankie Knuckles, Carl Cox, DJ Sneak, Green Velvet, Roger Sanchez and Jamie Jones. Today this translates into dynamic, technique driven sets, which spark the crowd’s interest and energise the dance floor.
Originally from Sofia, Bulgaria, AKSO relocated to the United Kingdom in 2010 and since then he has successfully captured the attention of other party-minded people. His performances spread around the UK with cities including Coventry, Birmingham, Nottingham, Sheffield, Leicester and Loughborough. He qualified for the final stages of the Freestyle DJ Competition at BPM in both 2012 and 2014, and was the runner up in 2015. In addition, he was granted a guest set at the Play at BPM stage in 2014 and 2015. In 2017 AKSO relocates to Frankfurt, Germany where he currently resides and continues his musical journey. His ambitions for 2018 are to introduce himself to the party minded people in his home country and share his musical taste with them.
AKSO loves playing in clubs, pubs and house parties and his love for music and ambition goes beyond the concept of mixing tunes. Inspired by DJs such as Bass Kleph, Shiftee and Enferno, AKSO embraces digital technology in order to push the boundaries of live performance. He says: “I dream that one day people would be excited to come and watch my sets. I believe that live performance builds a relationship with the crowd that traditional DJing cannot.”
When he is not performing at events, AKSO likes to spend his time working on new video mixes and Maschine kits in his home studio. His YouTube channel AKSO Official has an ever-growing fan base. It is where he expresses himself musically and shares his work with the DJ community and other eager ears alike.
