Saku

Breaks Funk / R&B

DJ Saku found himself behind the turntables for the first time more than fourteen years ago. However, he was a devoted musician even before that: he is a lovelorn piano player and a cured guitarist. At first, he leaned towards a more funkier sound of labels such as Freskanova and Skint. Gradually, he sank into deeper and deeper bass, so that seven years ago, his sets truly gave some goosebumps. At present, he has reached a compromise and his mixes reach from soundsystem breaks to classic breakbeat mashups. He performs primarly in Prague (regularly in clubs like Akropolis and Cross), but he does not shy away from the rest of the country and his visits to Slovakia have been rather frequent recently. He played as a DJ on parties with Koma&Bones, Andy Haze, Adam Freeland, Aquasky, Krafty Kuts. He was invited (along with DJ Sunpaja and bands like Southpaw and Skyline) to the Cosmopolis 2003 festival in Lisbon, Portugal, which saw Rinocerose, Troublemakers, Jazzanova, and 4 Hero. He is a member of crew@breakbeat.cz and has a regular column of breakbeat reviews in some music magazines. He is also promoter.
