Dave Aju (Circus Company, Accidental - US/DE) @ The Observatory

 THE OBSERVATORY presents DAVE AJU (Circus Company, US). The sound of San Francisco native and Berlin resident Dave Aju is hard to place anywhere other than in a big zone labeled ‘Dance’.

With a microphone and sampler set next to the decks, he’s become known throughout the global underground dance circuit for his unique productions and live vocal-infused sets. 

Dave Aju tracks seem to be consistently glazed with a thick layer of musical nuance that is simply not heard in any of the genres he may happen to be loosely working in. It’s a functional sound for dancing that simultaneously manages to be complex and unique, with incredibly-sourced samples and vocals that give them an edge of attitude that allows for nothing more than taking them very seriously. 

Running a crowd through a safari of different musical influences and styles - from piano-heavy house from the darker side of planet funk, to rolling electronic rhythms straight out of the future that are often infused with vocals out of the past - Dave Aju is a master of making people move to unknown sounds for hours on end.

This is a night to explore the outer reaches of the electronic soundscape, and dance, a lot.
