Justice, something I consider so precious but miss so often in this world. Apart from music I’ve always been dealing with history and humanistic psychology and it’s an ongoing process that has a massive impact on myself and my music.
In the end ‘Travesty Of Justice’ is a piece of music, not more not less, however it’s my way of processing things and gives me hope and strength. Thanks for listening! “Travesty Of Justice” is out on Bandcamp and available here.

Who I’d like to thank:
The biggest thanks goes out to everyone who’s supported my music over the years. Despite my love to music no matter what, it’s your feedback and appreciation that drives me.
One of the first and most dedicated supporters was Julian Ganzer and Studio Kreuzberg that had had a huge impact on my music. Ilja, Matthias, Peter, Jim, Chris and all my other friends from the US, you guys have shown me the good side of the bizz. Stefan, Denis, Cedric and Corey, thank you guys for your incredible remixes. My dear friend Johannes for holding up this friendship unconditionally. Furthermore thank you Ben, Anna, Uttam, Robin, Javier, Alex, Daniel and whoever I crossed path with during that last five years.
Yours truly, IOAKIM
PS: I hope I didn’t forget anyone.
Are you familiar with Bandcamp? It’s a website where musicians can release and distribute their music independently. I’ve been on Bandcamp for a while and recently decided to focus even more on it since it perfectly reflects my attitude towards a certain degree of autarchy within the music business.
So from now on you can find all my releases there. Most of them are purchasable through Bandcamp directly, some of them via other sale platforms and a couple of them are even free. Hope to see you there….

The art of DJing has lost quite a lot of charm due to the unbelievable amount of mixes available everyday. Furthermore the focus seems to have shifted from losing yourself into the music and critically dealing with it to worshipping the DJs primarily. Appreciation is often deserved and utterly important for each one of us. The quality and effort we put into music needs to be priority number one though… always. Thank you.
