Affils: Future Soul / Hydration Mix Series

Akela's sound can be described as "Fast Soul Music With Teeth". Known for his take on soulful, evocative Drum’n’Bass, Akela’s sound, whether smooth and jazzy or hard as nails, always delivers a dramatic storyline. Shaping his sets to complement the environment in which they’re played, Akela draws from his two decades of DJ experience in dance music, and his influences ranging from the early days of House right up to the most dramatic new DnB show exactly that. Not limited specifically to DnB, Akela regularly performs Deep House, Dub Techno, and Lounge Music sets to round out his electronic repertoire. He creates upbeat moods, compelling short stories, and satisfied grins with his careful attention to minute sonic details, commanding the listener’s attention and unconscious gyration of the bathing suit area.

His contributions to the bass music scene have included leads and collaborations with Dub Selekta, Future Soul, Hydration Mix Series, Suave Assassins, Digital Motion, and Shah DJs. Akela has performed alongside some of the world’s top talent, including the likes of Andy C, Noisia, dBridge, LSB & DRS, Danny Byrd, Aries, Marcus Visionary, Spectrasoul, Technimatic, and Dieselboy among many others. He’s also performed at numerous festivals including Wicked Woods, Tall Tree, Rifflandia, Soundwave and Shambhala.
