Zakem is a Moroccan DJ and Producer that defines the different aspects of House music. His first influences were American DJs who played old school, funky and disco styles. Zakem was introduced to the DJ world in 2004 where he would play music at private events. Soon after his journey, he was discovered by many DJs and artists from Morocco, Belgium and the United States. Up until 2007, Zakem only played live events, and produced music for his sessions. In 2008, he started a podcast called Funky Forest with his close friend and producer, Yescene, to promote dance and lounge, two genres that had been the stronghold of House music. He then started producing, releasing a remix for Afro-Tek on MJOY Records, that was very well received and gave him the motivation to produce more. Today, Zakem mixes the primary elements of lounge and chillout into Deep and Tech House, which results in a flavorous genre.
