Since their establishment in 2009, Fjaak attracted worldwide attention with an alternative and boundary pushing take on classic techno, house and breakbeat. The young Berlin residents are constantly searching for new ways of expressing their unique musical identity. Their music is mostly based on hardware jams capturing both the soul of a one-take recording and the energetic fusion of three individuals.
After early releases such as “Remember Me” and “Mind Games” became underground-hits and were played out from heavyweight DJs to a vast crowd, their bulging schedule turned them into full-time musicians, focusing on music production and international touring. Half a year after their first EP they debuted with their live set at the notorious Berghain as the youngest hardware only act so far.
“We live together in the studio at the moment, so every day starts and ends with music – we think that’s the way it should be. This year we produced a lot of tracks so stay tuned in 2014.
Good friends since their childhood, after some solo projects in various genres, they decided to collaborate under a common moniker because of the mutual love for techno and house.
From their love for extended vinyl sets, they decide to start of their own parties; Machine Vibes. The parties are a strictly vinyl only affair and offer a back-to-basics mentality, acting in clubs like “City Club” in Augsburg.
Fjaak is also a regular guest of Berghain in Berlin, which they consider the most interesting and exciting show during the last year. They worked on a hardware live set for weeks composed by mostly own tracks and unreleased and the dancefloor just felt immediately their vibe.
