MIX DESCRIPTION

A rare mix of soulful downtempo, cosmic jazz and deep house from SF tech-house sensation Dave Aju

BIOGRAPHY

San Francisco Bay Area native Marc Barrite created the DJ/production alias Dave Aju as a vehicle for his unique take on electronic music. Working at his own pace, Dave Aju has come to be known as a reliable source for fresh and expressive sounds, combining a passion for the roots of dance music culture with a natural sonic fascination and an adventurous approach, never afraid to try new things. A broad palette of outside musical influences can be found in Aju’s work, though his jazz upbringing and hip-hop foundation are clearly at the core, with an overall warm, laid back, unmistakably west coast vibe.

Dave Aju remixes, DJ sets, and live performances are currently in demand at labels, clubs, and festivals across the globe, and favored by a number of forward-thinking peers including Matthew Herbert, who has recently commissioned Aju for an EP release. His debut full-length album Open Wide is still causing a stir in the electronic music community after being nominated for the honorable Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, and praised by both everyday music-lovers and esteemed colleagues for it’s bold attempt at bridging diverse sub-genres and the experimental yet effective use of only his mouth and voice as sound sources.

With the ability to convey an impressive variety of emotions from playful party modes to deeper introspective moods and remaining true to the spirit and character of dance floor classics while stepping out into the future with his own inimitable sound, Dave Aju is indeed the opposite of déja vu; a rare breed.
