Hailing from Virginia, LAKIM has steadily made a name for himself in the electronic scene. Bridging the gap between dance and hip-hop with style and finesse, his sound is an ever-shifting blend of crisp drum patterns, dreamy synths, and lush vocal chops. Following several years of independently self-released projects, LAKIM made waves in 2012 when his stellar remixing skills caught the attention of the renowned forward-thinking beat collective, Soulection. His introductory EP for the label, “Esoteric”, was released in 2012. Following its debut, the label executives wrote in a press release that the body of work “not only displays his growth as an artist but also implements his signature style of chopping dusty soul records into the undeniable form of bass music that has been dominating the world’s sound of tomorrow.”.
Since then, he has continued to expand and evolve his style over multiple featured releases with the label and successful collaborations with fellow Soulection artists like Mr. Carmack, Sango, & Esta. He’s turned a song into a movement (originator of Future Bounce - i.e. GoldLink), has been the focus of the first Soulection’s White Label Series, and has remained on the tips of tongues with his remixes of popular artists and upcoming producers alike. Since the release of his first full-length album on Soulection, “This is Her”, in 2014, LAKIM has released several DJ sets (Broccoli City, Dancing Astronaut, etc.) and remixes, including his remix of Janet Jackson’s “BURNITUP!” featuring Missy Elliot, Banks’ official remix to her 2016 single, “Fuck with Myself.”, and his gracious remix of OVO artist Plaza’s single, “Personal”.
He has also further developed his production credits for various major label & indie recording artists, including Wale’s BYGPW (Colors) (Warner), Yung Gravy & Lil Baby’s “Alley Oop” (Republic), and Logic’s “Tokyo Nights” (Def Jam). LAKIM has received universal praise from publication outlets such as The Fader, Mass Appeal and Complex, while gaining traction in radio on platforms like BBC Radio 1, Beats 1, and Shade 45. Collectively, his music has amassed millions of downloads & streams and has garnered support from heavyweights such as Questlove, Just Blaze, and A-Trak.
LAKIM has consistently performed and toured around the globe since 2013, with astounding displays across North America (Afropunk, Boiler Room, etc.), Asia, Africa (Rocking the Daisies), Europe and Australia with standout performances alongside artists such as Nas, Kendrick Lamar, & Lauryn Hill. LAKIM embodies a sound that is truly unique and his energetic live performances shouldn’t be missed.
