Tapesh has been around the block a few times. Growing up in clubs owned by his father and having interest in all types of musical genres has made the multicultural German a true fanatic when it comes to play and produce music.

He’s been making music since his teens and never stopped tweaking, improving and looking for new types of genres to produce. The same goes for his dj-ing.

Having released on labels such as Hot Creations, Mobilee, Defected, W&O street tracks, Noir and Suara one can easily tell the variety of musical styles Tapesh has interest in producing. Loco Dice, Jamie Jones, Matthias Tanzmann and Anja Schneider, for example, are all fans of that special ‘Tapesh feeling’. That same feeling is what makes the man’s music so well loved.

Besides being a studio monster, Tapesh loves touring around the world playing his trademark sound or spend time on Ibiza and play at his ‘Ants’ residency, for the fourth summer in a row, at Ushuaia. Furthermore in 2016 Tapesh already toured trough Brazil & Asia and played clubs and festival in most European countries.

 Wanting to always reach the next level music wise, it’s no surprise Tapesh started his own label this year as well. The imprint is called Akulee and the first two releases (Panus Fasciatus EP and Answer/Steps EP) are by Tapesh himself. Akulee is focussing on the high-quality areas of house and techno. Stay tuned for future releases by other respectable artists on Akulee well.
