In one sentence: “He’s the Frank Sinatra of the scene” (Walshy Fire /Major Lazer)
Rakka isn’t only a mash up dj, his history is mashed up itself: born in Ghent (Belgium), growing up in Spain, having Russian blood running through his veins…This background and his Master degree in philosophy made him look to the world and music in a different way.
As a youngster, he had a choice: starting to take those Psycho stimulants or putting all that hyperkinetic disorder energy in his music. And so he did. At the age of 14, he locked himself up, practicing 14 to 18 hours a day. Scratchin’ and beatmixin’ until the sweat dropped on his mixer, creating a musical fire with his very first ‘big love’: the Jamaican dancehall from the golden era.
Those corner stones made him the performer he is nowadays: the one and only mash up energy bomb that kills with ill skills!
Expect the unexpected!
