When Akshen is not behind the turntables you can find him hosting Fader Manners an open turntable monthly event he co-founded. As well as The Scratch Exchange, an all vinyl scratch battle he created back in 2013. Akshen has had the privilege of judging, hosting, competing and organizing multiple DJ battles in AZ. He has shared his knowledge of DJing with organizations like the YMCA, numerous after school and youth programs, Scottsdale Community College, Arizona State University, Mesa Community College and Grand Canyon University's Hip-Hop Club.
