AkpaLa is the brand-new Organic House project of Pedro Mercado and Na Te: sexy, bohemian, hedonistic, oriental, ethnic, shamanic & spiritual sounds with a female touch – inspired by events such as Burning Man & Gardens of Babylon – is to be expected from them! Starting from 2022 their collab productions and their sets will be performed as “AkpaLa” instead of just “Pedro Mercado & Na Te”.
Pedro Mercado is one of the most known Belgian DJ/Producers in the Progressive House and Melodic Techno scene, reaching regularly the Beatport Top 100 on many highly regarded international labels (Parquet, Krafted Underground, Tanzgemeinschaft, Particles, Proton, Bonzai, Frequenza, Natura Viva, Dear Deer, Beatfreak, Manual, Awen, Project 13,...) which gets him gigs all over the world. He is also label manager of Chrom Recordings. During the pandemic and lockdowns he got more and more into Organic House and with this new “AkpaLa” monniker he wants to make a clear distinction from his usual and known Progressive & Melodic style.
In the past Pedro Mercado & Na Te released already several tracks & remixes together and 5 years ago they started a weekly radio show on Ibiza Global Radio. Nowadays they host monthly radioshows on Frisky Radio (Nomadland) & Proton Radio (Up-To-Deep). They are both also resident-DJs of the Planet Ibiza brand and performed already B2B in Belgium, Ibiza & Berlin. Starting from 2022 they will use the monniker “AkpaLa” for their collab tracks and their solo and/or B2B sets in Organic House.
