meet Hannes and holger

The best proof of love is trust – that counts for the lovely partnership in life as well as for creative arts. Whether in your own talents or in the well-meaning fate: trust mostly paves the cheerful way to happiness. The Berlin based electronic duo AKA AKA are the best example that trust in your own personal work does not only disburse, but is also spelled with elements of courage, faith and strength of purpose. When Saarland-born Hannes and Holger from East Frisia met each other at one of those legendary Berlin open-air parties in 2008, it wasn’t only the start of a refreshing friendship; they found the infamous wavelength in very short period of time. With different socialization equipped, they both use their divergent past as well as the joint project to give their common ambition a name. Ever since then they played over 1000 shows and released over 100 tracks and remixes which gained more than hundred million streamings on multple platforms, claimed numerous awards and are as ever productive especially since the corona virus lockdown in 2020. The two are focusing on the music part of the game and already tripled their streamings on Spotify and are collaborating with various DJs and producers from different genres who also see the crisis as a chance to use the surplus of time in the studio, develop new ideas and build new networks. They just signed with Dimitri Vegas' label Smash Deep and did a remake of their hit single Woody.
