ikaraki is one of the many Frequent Flyers that wander the globe in search of sights and sounds! Over many a year a love of pretty much any genre has been realised, usually verging to the deep, dark, evil, heavy or distorted end of the spectrum...
In Frequent Flyers, ikaraki has DJed in numerous clubs in the city including The Bongo Club, Cabaret Voltaire, GRV / The Left Bank, The Banshee Labyrinth, Electric Circus, The Third Door / Medina and a few pubs too. Vinyl if possible but when playing back to back or wanting to play stuff that isn't on wax, CDJs and Traktor are the order of the day...
Producing wise ikaraki has started to dabble with a few getting finished and release into the big bad world. Over time they can only get better and better! Ableton Live 8 through a Komplete Audio 6 soundcard with a number of VSTs installed is what makes the noise, of which favourites are Native Instrument's Massive, D16's line of virtual instruments and a shedload of samples for every corner of the universe!

I like: Music (obviously), BMX, mountain bikes, motocross, welding, engineering, drinking, clubbing, pizza, mexican food, chillis, my job and coffee!
I hate: Courgettes, aubergines, living away from all my friends, hurting myself on the bike, not being able to drive, not having the time to sit down and get a long music session completed.
I recommend: Blackmass Plastics, King Cannibal, Point B, Si Begg, Hollow Legs, Electronic Explorations, coffee, homemade food, not drinking too much and having to suffer a hangover...
I am interested in: Music, anything with two wheels, food, cooking, engineering and welding because that's what my job entails.
I know: Lots of maths, some welding and engineering, how to cook, lots more but nothing too interesting...
I can: Ride a bike, mix vinyl, produce tunes, TIG & MIG weld (mild steel only, how useful...) and somehow keep myself alive!
