Erich and James met while serving in the U.S. Army stationed in San Antonio, Texas 2007. Their common interests range from serving in the U.S. Army, have served in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. During their time in the military they have had the pleasure of learning different cultures. The time spent in Europe and Asia has exposed them to different sounds, energy and exciting music. It has given them a better understanding and an unbelievable range of EDM of all facets. With all of this wonderful information on the electronic music worldwide scope it is only fitting that AKS has became who they are today.
In 2008, we were inspired by one of their favorite DJ’s, Markus Schulz in Austin, Texas. Not knowing that we shared the same passion for EDM a long life friendship was born. In the spring of 2010 after much deliberation, James and Erich decided to start on a venture creating what is now AKS. Our initial mix series “This Is Our Sound” received positive accolades while their favorite “Progressive Sessions” has proven that they can bang with the best. Our love for the progressive sound has set them apart from the rest and making their mark on the scene.
During the four year span AKS have been to many shows and influenced by many big name DJ’s such as Markus Schulz, Matt Darey, Armin Van Buuren to name a few. Some of the DJ’s we have had the privilege to play for are TyDi, Kenneth Thomas, Sharam and Lucky Date, Charles Feelgood, Sonny Fodera, DJ BL3ND, Darude, Afrojack w/Sidney Samson, Cosmic Gate & Kaskade. We have played at some of the best clubs in San Antonio, Texas and look forward to continued success for 2014. Through social networks and technology AKS has been able to build a solid fan base, local and international support.
With so much music in the world it is clear new heights will be achieved and the limits are endless.
Thank you all for the continued support and for the opportunity to live out one of our biggest dreams…..
AKS (Erich & James)
