In this episdoe you can enjoy : There are DJs, then there are DJs who capture—and live—a moment in dance music’s evolution. Born in Los Angeles, but based in New York for the better half of a decade, Akua has established herself as the latter, an important voice in the East Coast’s techno scene. Akua’s DJing practice is fueled by her research in the Black dance music archive, a crate-digging approach that embodies the spirit of late ’10s dance music initiatives devoted to honoring the Black roots of techno, such as dweller and Make Techno Black Again.

Akua’s sets are minimalist and raw extensions of the foundations laid by the pioneers of ’90s U.S. techno. Most prominently, the work and influence of DJs like Jeff Mills, Claude Young and Jay Denham can all be heard across her mixes. Her old-school meets new-school sound has catapulted her from the New York underground into the European techno circuit, where recent gigs have seen her perform at dance music institutions like Berghain and Dekmantel. Akua’s RA Podcast is her in full-throttle mode, featuring all the stripped-down, hypnotic groove of early techno aside rushes of searing acid, carefully speeding up until closing at a healthy sprint.
