Biografie

AK1200 is the stage name of Florida-based musician Dave Minner working in the jungle and drum and bass genres.

He started DJing in 1989 playing mainly Electro, and in 1990 he opened a record store in Orlando, Florida called The Hottie Shop. His early working relationships were with record labels such as Suburban Base and Moving Shadow. He teamed up with DJ Jeffee to publish the U.S. jungle fanzine Junglized.

His first production effort was a 1993 remix of a Suburban Base Records track by Flex and Fats called Somebody and, as this was released on Suburban Base, he became the first U.S. Jungle producers to release a track in the U.K. (the country of origin of Jungle/Drum and Bass). AK1200 was also the first U.S. DJ to play on U.K. pirate radio, alongside Swift and DJ Zinc on Format FM.

Throughout the 1990s he tried his hand at just about every variation on the high speed breakbeat musical idiom and has collaborated with many influential jungle and drum and bass artists including Aphrodite (Artist), DJ Dara, Danny Breaks, Dieselboy, and MC Navigator, as well as with hip hop artists such as A Tribe Called Quest.

His debut album, SHOOTTOKILL was co-produced with Rob Playford, of Moving Shadow fame. A prominent American artist in the jungle scene, AK1200 has been credited for helping to increase the popularity of jungle and D&B in the United States, due to his reputation for impressive live performances and prolific remixes, as well as for playing for free to help promote the spread of the style.

    After listening to him for the past 7 years or so, I just recently came to realize I really don't like AK. I don't know exactly why. I just don't really enjoy his overall sound or his mixing, and I can't recall ever really liking it. That being said, his mix of CL's Drowning is one of my top 3 D&B tracks of all time. That single will always be perfect to me, no matter what I think about the rest.
