Rikki Arkitech, of no fixed abode, has been inflicting his brand of high energy rave music since 2005. Under the wing of Hardcore legend and innovator Sharkey, Rikki studied the craft from the master and soon became the in-house engineer for Kaotik Records, a part of the Nu Energy Collective. Regularly featuring on the Bonkers and Hardcore Heaven compilation mixes it wasn’t long before he was playing at the scene’s biggest events and spreading the sound internationally.
