IKKI – born in 1980 as Xavier Forfait – lives in Madrid and is half French half Spanish.
As teenager he used to play the guitar in a metalband.
In summer 2006 he started producing his own tracks featured by Nina Martine.
They even made a song together with The Bloody Beetroots in 2007 called Pinky Girl.
Tired of the strict separationf of metal and electro he decided to put them together and began in summer 2007 as IKKI to remix well known metal songs.
IKKI archived it to play in many underground clubs but also being in the setlist of many international DJs.
In te meanwhile he was able to molt himself as the god-father of Madrids electro scene: He acts as a producer, hes got a studio and two years ago he built up his own label “Nu Bakalei”. Furthermore he was a resident Dj in Madrids number one nightclub: Soundsick.
It isn’t a secret that metal lovers aren’t often in partyclubs – IKKI archived it to bridge between both scenes.
There fore he acts as aftershow DJ on metal concerts and likewise on electroparties. The tunes of his first EP “BAKALA BANGER” he produced alone in a cellar, isolated from outside world.
IKKI shows hot electrocovers of well knows metal songs, wich try up every club.
