Geek for all things pop-culture, Tommy West hosts the 128 Podcast each week, interviewing guests from the world of music and entertainment.


Born and raised in Winnipeg, Canada, Takis’ formative years spun around his obsession with hip-hop. While still in high school, he landed an internship at a small independent hip-hop radio station, fell in love with music and vowed to have his own records hit the airwaves one day.

His career began with DJing in small venues and (eventually) local clubs, and quickly led to him producing his own records and remixes as well. Takis recounts a pivotal moment in his career when the radio station he worked for sent him to cover a local EDM festival. “I’ll never forget seeing the energy that this music created”, Takis explains. “I immediately knew that I wanted to merge the music I grew up loving so much with the energy and “feeling” that dance music gave me. Going to that festival changed my life forever.”
