Akanbi is heading a new generation of dedicated ravers in NYC. Raised in Lagos, Nigeria, with limited access to the internet but a huge thirst for new music, Akanbi moved to NY in 2010 and immersed himself head first into every corner of dance music, as a serious dancer and eventually a DJ and rave activator. He’s cultivated his unique style of DJing that delivers an intentional blend of freak-out boogie music, sensual rollers, whipcrack bangers, insistent percussion, afrobeat(s) goodness, deep thumping low frequencies & slow-burning experimental descents. In 2016 he started New York’s GROOVY GROOVY parties, a judgment-free atmosphere for wild dance floors, spiritual, mental & physical rejuvenation, radical politics, and a dose of undeniably rocking talent.
