Akido (stylized as aKido) is the pseudonym of Canadian electronic rock musician and composer Kim Gaboury.[1] Gaboury assembles a live band to tour with; this live component is generally considered a separate entity from aKido in the recording studio.

As of 23 September 2007, according to The R3-30, the aKido song Dancing in Chains was the third-most popular indie song in Canada.

In January 2011, Gamechanger was nominated for the Electronica Album category for The 10th Annual Independent Music Awards.[2]

In October 2011, "Gamechanger" was nominated in the "Album électronique de l'année" at l'ADISQ.[3]
