All about ABSOLUT House ft. AXO B2B NIK

  • Main Artist : ABSOLUT House ft. AXO B2B NIK
Nik is one of Bangalore's most highly and hidden talented musician. It all started in the year 2010 and from there it's just no looking back for him, be it playing & mixing on decks or producing sounds in the studio. A dance music purist, hugely influenced by Jazz, Soul, Chicago House and Detroit Techno, his DJ sets are seamless, instinctive and engaging. What always Stands out about him is his performances, he has the ability to make an immediate connection with the audience, soaking up the vibe and playing according to their reactions. He’s a musician who lives off his instincts, channeling his moods and emotions directly into his audience, translating new experiences and sensations into sound. There simply is no other way for him.

To discover, share and evolve. To elevate people from the banality of mere existence,  through the collective  experience of dance. This is the sound of AXO.
A music collector from as far back as he can remember, a design professional, a motorcycle builder, Akshay Hegde aka AXO, has been sharing his love for dance music and its diversity by playing extensively and exclusively on the underground circuit, professionally for 7 years.
His foundations of deejaying and electronic music production were laid at the ILM Academy, Bangalore, where he headed the graphic design department. Under their banner he made his debut as a Dj with weekly residencies, at ITC Fortune & The Liquid Lounge at Ista in Bangalore, playing his eclectic selection of indie dance, tech house and electronica. Determined to widen the acceptance of non-mainstream dance music, a string of collaborative residencies with fellow local underground Djs, at The Beach, Pebbles and The Love Shack followed. These initial years were explorations of groovy Indie Dance, Nu Disco; broody moody Deep House and Techno.
His creative sets led to one off gigs at The Sanctum Club, Coco Bongo, Viva Ariba, Raneo Village, Bangalore, The Purple Room in Chennai, Café La Musica & Psybar in Goa. A highlight from this time was a thumbs-up from personal hero and inspiration, Timo Maas, after an opening set for him late in 2012 at Pebbles.
In 2013 AXO found a new home at The Humming Tree, Bangalore. A venue dedicated to pushing quality music across genres, it was here where he thrived exploring the depths of disco, house, soulful house, electronica and drum & bass. He performed numerous solo gigs and shared performances with artists like Nucleya, Unnayanna, Masta Justy, Madboy Mink & Thallavattam among others. Impressed with the uniqueness of his sound and his ability to connect to a diverse and discerning audience, he progressed to a monthly Saturday night residency at the venue. His love for the music and his strong belief that Indian deejays on the underground circuit had much to offer, led to the birth of Beat Repeat. A property conceptualized and curated by him, with strong support from The Humming Tree, showcasing some of the best Indian deejays dedicated to pushing their chosen genres of dance music coupled with emerging talent from new media and the visual arts sphere, to create an engaging audio visual experience.
Late 2013, AXO forged alliances with the newly formed ModeM Networks. Playing extensively through 2014 for their properties. The Pink X at Pebble, Fly at The Royal Orchid and Sundaze at The Tao Terraces in Bangalore where he gained popularity for his innovative, marathon genre defying sets.

Mid 2014, he teamed up with fellow conspirer Dj Nik and started Four By Four. A weekly Friday night residency dedicated to the mature partier through the exploration of the roots of dance music in Disco and House at The Love Shack, Bangalore.
The busy year culminated with his successful debut in Bombay at Cheval Bar & Restaurant and Terttulia, playing his collection of Indie Dance, Disco and House.
