Aki's passion for electronic music started by listening to 80's pop records from his older fellows. From 1995 to 1998, he played drums on various post-rock bands. Slowly though, he moved towards electronic music, which pushed him to buy two turntables. His dj'ing then rapdily evolved through waves of various electronic music styles such as dub, trip-hop and electronica but neatly tied together with some solid minimal-techno and house...
In 2005 Aki joins Toys For Boys Records meanwhile holding a residency at parties in Brussels.
In 2006 he decides to launch his own imprint alongside Franco Cangelli, they call the label Aesthetik Records. Since 2009 they started two new labels (Mowar/Nowar) with still that contemporary look on what is techno & house.

Scotland-born Parisian Paradise 100 aka Graham/Africa has been percolating stripped-back, bouncy-castle house constructs onto the web for a couple years but never locked them in wax till now. High time.
Paradise 100 has unveiled the first track off his debut EP The Loin King, which comes out October 1st on 100% Silk. Pitchfork premiered title track "The Loin King", describing it as a "six-minute house jam" that "sweetly unfolds into something...expansive and tart."
Following his minimalist dictum that "any more than three tracks on a song is just indulgence," his debut EP's four cuts on The Loin King share a sleek, spare design, jigsawing slinky bass, classic keys, lean drum programming, and flashes of synth mirage into fluid, aerodynamic patterns. Touches of melodic acid and crossover new wave color the mood an exotic, hedonistic hue (further evinced by titles like "The Loin King" and "French Kissing In The House Of Love"). His own vision of the project is appropriately fantastical: "The image in my mind is of tropical forests at night, torchlight, distant sounds of tribal ritual dance and ghosts."
