Over the years, ak9 has grown and established a name for himself in today’s world as one of the most prestigious progressive house and big room composers. The young and talented artist is influenced from various names such as Tom Swoon, Audien, Porter Robinson, Maor Levi or Myon & Shane 54, but in today’s ever evolving dance music scene, ak9 tries to stay as true and original to his style as he can.
