    Genre blending, sampling, deep cuts and creative selection are the best ways to describe AKWA and his craft. Since starting his journey behind the decks 7 years ago, the Toronto based artist has been building and digging up a unique arsenal of tracks and vinyl records which takes his listeners through an immersive sonic journey each night. While he has played festival stages like Veld in 2023 and is billed to be back this upcoming summer - the young talent began his musical journey inside lounges and speakeasy’s around Ottawa back in the mid 2010’s - Where he developed his skills of letting the music take control - Through enhancing the mingling, dancing and vibe that’s produced within these sorts of environments. Thriving off this, expect to hear samples of tracks you recognize from the past spliced and woven together into contemporary disco and house sounds inspired by New York, Chicago and London nightlife.
