Simone and Gabri are long term friends who share the same musical passions, so perhaps it was inevitable that they would eventually join forces and launch a project together. Producing under the artist names of Aki Bergen & Richter, this all Italian duo’s strengths lay embedded in their abilities to complement and inspire each other.
Both artists have enjoyed exploring a wide variety of genres over the years and each stemmed their initial love of electronic music during the 90’s European techno movement. Since then, they have spent time fine tuning their producing, composing and DJ skills. Aki and Richter’s common attraction to anything with a deep groove or melodic sound, has provided them with a foundation in which to streamline and empower their new partnership with. As individuals, they have both accumulated many years of experience in the music industry and possess unique qualities that signify their sound and individual flavour. Some of the artists they have worked alongside include, Dubfire, Noir, Miguel Migs, D.O.N.S and Shara Nelson from Massive Attack and they receive support from heavy weights such as Marco Carola, Ame, Richie Hawtin and Dixon among others.
Aki and Richter’s momentum from here, is to forge a complete union of minds, one that will drive the duo to produce an entirely new sound and one that which draw upon both their individual assets. Both artists see this partnership as a culmination of their creative influences and a tribute to their matured passion for electronic music. Together they are driven and inspired to bring you their best sounds yet. The project aim is to reflect and convey aspects of themselves through their music, with the intent to imprint you with a lasting impression and a burning desire to hear more.
