Sami Sharkki, better known by just his stage name Sharkki, is a celebrated Finnish DJ, producer, and curator. He is the founder and musical director Top Billin Music, Club Designs, Free Time Discs and My Techno Weighs A Ton record labels – known internationally for their close to 500 forward-thinking releases – and is widely considered one of electronic music’s leading creative minds and tastemakers both locally and around the world.
As a DJ, Sharkki’s sets move through breakbeat, Detroit electro, techno & ghetto house, as well as hard-to-find gems, tying the diverse genres together with fluid mixing and powerful low end frequencies that push the boundaries of the biggest PAs.
Sharkki currently spends his time between Helsinki and his other hometown Paris. When not on the move or doing A&R for all his labels, he is embarking on a highly anticipated body of original studio work, producing and releasing classic electro-inspired genre-fluid tracks via his Club Designs label.
