Hannes & Holger met behind the decks in spring 2008 at one of those openair parties which start as a gathering of friends and overflow in a park-rave of thousand euphoric people. Since then Hannes & Holger concentrate their energies on their collaboration: AKA AKA. Under contract with Oliver Koletzki's label Stil vor Talent, March 2009 saw their debut 'Voegeln EP' released and supported by artists like Dubfire, Claude VonStroke and Troy Pierce. Their track 'Woody Woodpecker' stayed for one month on the Beatport minimal charts at place 1 and also the vinyl version hopped from 0 to 1 by release day on decks.de. In May 2010 it was awarded the with the 3rd place of the annual Beatport Music Awards in the category 'best track minimal'. Also their 2nd and 3rd release on Stil vor Talent being played by Luciano, Adam Byer, Sharam (Deep Dish)Gus Gus and many more became a huge success. In October 2009 they started their own label Burlesque Musique which focuses on on non-conform minimal and techhouse influenced by swing, jazz, balkan, funk and other funny but danceable music. Besides Burlesque Musique they run the already since 2005 established music and party label Pentagonik.
Known for their driving liveact and DJset the two play in most of Berlin's clubs like Arenaclub, Watergate, Maria, Tresor or Ritter Butzke. Travelling around Europe they visited clubs in Zurich, Madrid, Moscow, Turin, Vienna, Cologne, Hamburg, Munich etc.
In March 2010 they played their first live performance at Watergate featuring their trumpeter Thalstroem who plays the trumpet and the Electronic Wind Instrument which adds a new floating layer to their music. Together with Thalstroem AKA AKA produced their debut album which was released on the 30th of May 2011 on Burlesque Musique. It stayed on #1 of the Amazon techno sales charts for weeks and was voted one of the top10 albums of 2011 by the readers of Germany's Groove and Partysan magazine. They also received the "best liveact 2011" award at the Partysan Poll.
One year after their successful debut “Varieté” which stayed on #1 of the Amazon techno sales charts for weeks and was voted one of the top10 albums of 2011 by the readers of Germany's Groove and Partysan magazine, AKA AKA & Thalstroem got together 31 remixers who made reinterpretations of their original tracks. Besides well known artists like Marek Hemmann, Moonbootica or Turntablerocker, old stagers like Technasia or Axel Bartsch, a lot of newcomers are on the boat. Stereo Express, Dirty Doering, Joachim Pastor, umami, Hanne&Lore, Rampa and Joris Delacroix. The result is like the original a diversified overall package on 3 CDs which deliver the perfect soundtrack for every mood.
