Joakim is hard to pin down: part club music, part jazz, part electronic experimentalism. One of Frances foremost electronic musicians, Joakm has a background in classical music, US & UK indie rock and jazz.
He discovered electronic music after a schoolfriend left his synthetiser in Joakims room, later latching onto indie and electronic labels such as Warp and Mo Wax. His first album Tiger Sushi was ambient electro-jazz, before he moved onto electronics with Fantmes , and later Monsters and Silly Songs , on which he combines post-rock, disco, electronics and, well, silly songs. "Making a pure dance album would almost be like composing an album entirely in F major, " says Joakim. "I jump from one idea to the next. I simply have to try everything and see where it leads. "
Joakim runs the Tigersushi label, releases a broad spectrum of music including Maurice Fulton, E.S.G, Poni Hoax and Metro Area. Joakim does live sets, DJs and hes also a remixer; hes recut tunes from Tiga, Air and Antenas Camino Del Sol - the latter of which was one of the biggest club tunes of 2006. Finally, he also has a live band, Joakim and the Ectoplasmic Band, on which he plays machines, keyboards, guitars and sings. Fingers in many pies then.
Supported DJs: Mitzi Djs, Youth, and more to be announced.
