In the north of Mother Africa, desert rhythm meets metropolis roar, and Amine K is Morocco’s ambassador to the music. Amine’s progressive sounds is deep and stylish, with many a sweaty face on the dancefloor telling a moving story of how they got enraptures by his vibrant DJ style.
Born with a heart for the beat, Amine Akesbi started to DJ at 14 years old with an old school mixer and a double cassette deck. Growing older Amine’s dedication to the electronic music community has continued to be diverse beyond his own performances, and in 2009 he launched Moroko Loko, which is a concept party for real people in Morocco looking to really dance to underground music.
Since then his party has boomed and played host to international guests like Nick Warren, Matthias Meyer, Martin Eyerer, Alex Niggemann, Satoshi Tomiie, Shaun Reeves and many more. The party brand has even gone global, touring in Toronto, Montreal, Paris, Borocay, Tokyo, Toulouse, Montpelier, Tunis, Bordeaux.
Amine K’s big radio hit ‘Dar Gnawa’ alludes to his ethnic Morrocan roots, but he insists on remaining open as an artist with music influences ranging from Danny Tenaglia, to Deep Dish, Loco Dice, Nick Warren, and even BBKing. His own performances now include live composition during DJ sets and ethnic music works to supplement the beat structures. Amine’s projection on a dance floor is of immediacy, working in the story of the now, a journey with no past or future, but a focus, as he says, on the present.
Blending deep and sensual atmosphere with tribal percussion and melodic pads, this charismatic mix recorded exclusively for CU is testament to Amine K’s talent behind the decks.
