Vakru has been involved with dance music since a young age when he first tried his hand as a DJ. This was when he understood that with music he could express what words couldn’t say – sharing a part of your inner world through sound.
Vakru approaches any performance, be it a supporting act, solo show or back-to-back, with equal focus and total commitment. This approach lets him feel equally comfortable in minimal and micro-house music.
In his early DJing days, Vakru played at well-known rave events and festivals of his native Latgale region: Summer House, Nāc un tusē, Wash My Brain and others. After moving to Riga, he was serving the beats at the Essential, Club Kino, Klubs 88 (ex-Jameson afterparty) clubs and, most recently, the trendy Teritorija venue in the capital. He has shared the stage with Taran & Lomov, Andre Crash, Electricano, Deros, Ideology of Sound, Sam Divine and other famous DJs.
Vakru is always on the lookout for new vinyl additions to his sound collection, records podcasts on a regular basis.
