Akela’s sound can be described as “Fast Soul Music with Teeth”. He infuses multiple genres on the warmer side of Bass Music, weaving groovy love stories with happy-go-lucky dancefloor bounciness. Be it Liquid Drum & Bass, Deep House, UK Garage, or Sexy Dubstep, Akela’s sound envelops the listener with a warm blanket of subsonic affection and intuitive funkiness. Shaping his sets to complement the environment in which they’re played, Akela draws from nearly two decades of DJ experience in dance music, and his track selections from the early days of House right the way up to the spankiest new DnB show exactly that. Akela creates upbeat moods, compelling short stories, and satisfied grins with his careful attention to minute sonic details, commanding the listener’s attention and unconscious wiggling of the pants area.
His contributions to the Victoria music scene are ever growing with his partner Tedder at the successful Future Soul series at The Copper Owl; parties and club nights with his PIC Amy Kirtay at Dub Selekta; and constant behind-the-scenes support of the emerging future music crews in Victoria. As a producer Akela has recently completed several soulful Liquid tunes, and currently runs the Hydration Mix Series which features some of BC’s most respected Liquid Drum & Bass DJs. Additional recent performances include Tall Tree, Rifflandia, and Shambhala.
Born & Bred on the West Coast of Canada, Palletz is a producer/DJ specializing in hip hop, reggae, funk, soul & disco inspired electronic bass music. Hailing from an Vancouver Island, British Columbia, with a vast range of musical tastes and armed with an extensive music library, he has honed his craft to be a tight knit package consisting of a mixture of old-school throwback remixes and new school booty-shakin’ bass-filled music.
Having grown up on a wide variety of musical tastes, it has set him up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influence…all which became infused with his own love for both instrumental and electronic music. Today, this transcends into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of his sets. Able to hold down dancefloors with virtually any style, Palletz continues to pack the place everywhere he goes.
