Akua has been at the forefront of a new generation of techno connoisseurs that expertly channel the timeless energy of 90s and early 2000s into their artistry. The Ghanaian-American DJ first established herself in the influential New York underground techno world, leading to her meteoric rise in North America. She’s proved to be a sonic force to be reckoned with as the last few years have seen her captivate dancefloors worldwide – culminating in a move to European techno capital Berlin in 2023.

Her signature sound – powerful and confrontational, yet raw and groovy – has provided unparalleled experiences for audiences at Europe’s essential festivals including Dekmantel, Draaimolen, and DGTL, along with esteemed institutions like Berghain, De School, Fuse, and Blitz. Building upon her global momentum, she’s expanding her international reach with tours of Asia and Australia in the first quarter of 2024.

At a time where the same trends dominate the industry, Akua’s sets are refreshing and inspire audiences to remember the true essence of techno – skillfully connecting the knowledge of dance music’s past and present, while also representing a vision for dance floors of the future.
