Hailing from Richmond, Virginia, People of Earth's recording artist Dj Aakmael is a dj /producer who creates some of the deepest and rawest house tracks of today’s Deep House scene. His jazz inspired music contains the perfect blend of deep chords and driving basslines topped with hard hitting instrumentals.
His release started making noise in 2004 with the Unexposed Evolutionz EP on Bumpin’ City Records, and has since been churning out projects that have been featured on other respected dance labels like Axe on Wax, Freerange Records, Release Sustain, Hizhou, Morris-Audio, Earthrumental/Real Tone, upcoming releases on NDATL, Rainy City, and his own imprint Unxpozd Entertainment. Aakmael’s remixes also has made the rounds of clubs and radio shows worldwide, still preserving that deep underground sound.
Aakmael has held down a deep house music radio show for over 20 years that was local at first on WDCE 90.1fm and then became a global phenomenon after the station went online. His respected profile has brought him to many places such as Flash (DC), Output (NY), Soundtable (ATL), and WMC just to name a few.
Those who are close to People of Earth label boss, Michael Scott, know he is a person of a few words. He chooses, instead, to let the music speak for him. Hailing from Atlanta, Michael sticks to what he knows, smart, and soulful.. His DJ career has taken him to events from London to Hawaii and many places in between.
Michael's label journey began in 2001, while working as a buyer for the famed Satellite Records, when he created SOCO Audio. Release from the likes of Eddie Richards, Charles Webster and KemeticJust gave his label global recognition and started a 20 year path for him.
Fast forward, Michael teamed up with long time friends Francis Harris, Anthony Collins & Shawn Schwartz to create the Scissor & Thread imprint. The label released and developed artists such as Grammy nominated Bob Moses, Blacklightsmoke, and Frank & Tony.
Present day, Michael continues his 20 year DJ career and is back on the solo tip launching his much anticipated label, People of Earth. He chooses music that's closest to his heart and a style that best represents him as a DJ, smart and soulful. Friend and fellow ATLien, Kai Alce, delivered the debut release for People of Earth. HIT! Here we go again...
Michael continues to grow the label, releasing quality music, DJing events around the globe and has a new release planned for People of Earth later this Summer.
