"A very good friend of mine from Tokyo. He's a huge drum 'n' bass DJ out there. An institution. We met when I toured Japan around eight years ago and while I don't listen to a whole lot of d'n'b I know what I like – and I love Aki. He's not afraid to include elements of techno and rave with his selections. He thinks outside the box and finds different ways to communicate with the crowd. Every time I see him play he makes me think about exploring different genres and sounds."
