Rakans ()


Rakans is a DJ, an Artist, and a visionary. His oriental, experimental, and eclectic approaches to arts and music make his sound choices unique and mysterious. Rakans is also the founder of Rawmantique party in Dresden, a Queer Safe(r) Space that aims at providing a space for explorations whether they’re sexual, social or psychological all within the underground scene offering the alternative and curious mind a non-judgmental surrounding that allows for new unique experiences, whatever they may be, to happen.

Rakans’s daring and mysterious musical choices have centralized his vision between local and European collectives. Bringing with him a different taste to music and arts, Rakans performed on main platforms such as Boiler Room, and Hör Berlin as well as main floors of multiple reputable clubs such as Mutabor (Moscow), Anomalie (BLN) Sektor Evolution (DD) Wilde Renate (BLN) Le Depot & The Machine Moulin Rouge (Paris) and multiple others. Aspiring to present an evolving sound along with new experiences, playing on the decks of Horovod Festival, Pornceptual, Mala Junta, Popoff Kitchen, Myst Paris, and Flash Cocotte has certainly pushed these endeavours.

His music often takes on an emotional and dramatic character bringing love, sexuality, and tenderness as main topics into the techno sounds. While remaining true to his identity being connected with his love and admiration to the land, his music doesn’t only make the crowd dance hard, but also groove and go back to their first instincts of sexual desires, primal social connections and pleasures.
