akka is the pseudonym of multidisciplinary creative and facilitator Shareeka Helaluddin. She intuitively fuses highly percussive beats, noisy club, distinctly subcontinental rhythms interwoven with found-sounds and recordings. She finds solace and intrigue in drone and dissonance, and uses djing as a means to explore and deconstruct dance music and its traditions, inspiring fierce movement abridged by moments of reflection. She is also a part of Third Space, a newly formed club night / sonic disruption that seeks to hold space for artists to expand and challenge their creative capacities alongside their social consciousness.
