Biography

Björn Åkesson was born in 1986, in a town called Lund (southern Sweden). He first noticed electronic music in the middle of the 90’s when he heard music from a videogame called Wipeout 2097. With artists such as Future Sound of London, The Prodigy and Orbital the interest grew. A few years later a friend from school introduced Björn to trance/club music. This sounded a lot better and much more interesting than the techno he had heard before. In early 2003 Björn teamed up with a fellow swedish producer for a collab. The track was called Havannah – Havannah’. Havannah was played by top DJ’s like Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Johan Gielen, The Thrillseekers and many others.
After this collaboration Björn continued making his own tunes and few years later he luanched the “Akesson” project which made a big impact on Above & Beyonds radioshow ‘Trance Around The World’.In early 2008 the track ‘Perfect Blue’ was introduced to the world as ‘Tune Of The Week’ by Armin van Buuren on his huge radioshow ‘A State Of Trance’. Both Sunchaser and Perfect Blue was very well recieved by the trance community and appeared on several big compilations mixed by world class DJ’s and released by huge recordcompanies such as Sony BGM, EMI and Ministry Of Sound.This is surely the beginning of a very successful music career for the talented young man.Today you can find Björn on his way out to the clubs all over Europe making his epic DJ appearances. So keep an eye out!
