Awakenings Festival 2019
FJAAK, the trio of hardware heads, have been constantly making a name for themselves over the last half a decade. Having grown up together in Spandau on the outskirts of Berlin, Felix Wagner, Aaron Röbig and Kevin Kozicki first cut their teeth in the electronic music scene by organizing illegal raves in and around Berlin, before ending up on the fast track to becoming one of the scene‘s most exciting live acts.
Since being taken on by 50Weapons bosses Modeselektor in 2014, FJAAK released five critically acclaimed EPs whilst incessantly travelling the world. Over the years, the young trio has gained an impressive experience and routine, spreading their elaborate analogue sound all around the globe. From Los Angeles to Bejing, from SXSW back to Berghain – FJAAK were there to deliver what has become their trademark: raw, naturally crafted techno!
Their distinctive sound and signature hands-on mentality, as properly captured in their “Against The Clock” feature for FACT Magazine, were reasons enough for BBC Radio 1’s B.Traits to name the trio one of her Future 12 Artists.
Now, FJAAK are set to release their self-titled debut full length on 20 January on Modeselektor’s main imprint Monkeytown Records.
