The past 24 months have seen Taiki collaborate with scene heavy weights such as My Nu Leng, AC Slater, Chris Lorenzo, Cause & Affect and Low Steppa to devastating effect. As one of the most in demand remixers in his scene from both major labels and indie’s alike, Taiki has remixed the likes of Netsky, Zeds Dead, Destructo, Shift K3Y and Keys N Krates but to name a few.
As one who is always on the road, Taiki has taken his trademark sound far and wide, having played across the globe. Just a handle full of highlights have been performances at BoomTown (UK), Electric Forrest (USA), Forbidden Wonderland (USA), Pacha (Ibiza) as well as tours in Australia, Japan and a continually busy diary across Europe playing at iconic clubs such as Fabric and Ministry of Sound.
