Wandering around one of Berlin’s many underground parties late in the hazy mornings, one might have enjoyed the sounds of Akirahawks without necessarily knowing it. Discreet but firmly grounded in the Hauptstadt night community, he’s one of its best hidden gems.
Since Akirahawks settled down for good in Europe’s electronic mecca, he has been spreading thick sheets of intergalactic space-funk over various crowds at local clubs such as Tresor, Berghain or the infamous Homopatik nights.
Also deeply involved in the record label game, Akirahawks runs the House Mannequin imprint alongside his label partner Shingo Suwa, which has enjoyed major support from true House legends. Pushing quality over quantity, the releases are known for their raw, alternative and versatile disco / house sounds and are an accurate reflection of Akira’s tastes and selections when he’s playing out. Being closely attached to Berlin’s most extravagant party, he’s also part of the Homopatik label, on which he’s been releasing music in collaboration with rising star Mr.Ties.
