Axxonlab Biography

Axxonlab is a live act from Eindhoven, the Netherlands. It was born as
collaboration between two friends; Fen Weijtens and Ricky van
Broekhoven. Both being (electronical) music fanatics and having a
background in playing musical instruments.

Fen Weijtens is also known as Drs Fntn mixing minimalistic Dub-techno.
He was taught playing the drums at an early age. Also listening a lot
to hip hop, reggae and funk is what made him being creative with
producing beats and being able to create rhythms with a clear
complexity.

Ricky was affected with the house virus in the early nineties. He
played the piano since he was six years old. At that time thinking the
classical music his teacher got him to play wasn’t interesting, he
tried to recreate the house music he liked. Making his little brother
play repetitive beats on his toy drum and accompany him with the
chords on the piano. Those sequences were all neatly recorded on his
My First Sony.

After different solo projects Fen and Ricky decided to merge their
skills in creating their own electronical music. They joined forces as
Axxonlab at the end of 2007.

Their first gig was in a sold out Club Rechter in Eindhoven. After
having played at several clubs and festivals in their hometown the
amount of requests for performing their live- act at cities across the
country is ever growing.

Techno heroes like Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, and Dave Clarke initially
inspired their music. But now they have found their own distinctive
style in a mix of minimal / (dub)-techno and electro.

On stage their ‘set-up’ is constantly evolving and changing with
different synthesizers and controllers. However, the two laptops
containing their sequences are always the heart of the set.
