St. Louis, United States
Akeem was first recognized in 2005 by DJ Thurl (The Music Choice's Mixtape Channel for 2009 and mixer on KATZ 100.3 The Beat in St. Louis for 10 years.) and was taken under his wing. After being exposed to the glitz and glam of the local music scene he realized he was going to have to step up his game. Akeem then purchased his first pair of 1200’s and became completely obsessed with and dived right into turntablism. He trained for a couple of years under Sir Thurl along with his collection of skilled and seasoned DJ artists.
In 2011 Akeem met up with St Louis's Elements of Bass. After kicking in the studio and some small work with the group he did a quick stint in Vegas before coming back and linking back up with EOB and settling right in. Eventually he did a guest DJ at STLs famous "Bass and Bliss" monthly and a stunning mix on www.dnbradio.com. His stock has been skyrocketing ever since.
