Bay Area born Marc David Barrite aka Dave Aju is a reliable name for fresh and distinctive electronic music, combining deep knowledge and passion for dance music history with a fearless, forward-thinking approach to production and performance. A diverse range of influences from his jazz upbringing and hip-hop years, to the outer realms of experimental post-rock and musique concréte can be heard in Aju’s unique sound, always with a solid sense of rhythm owed to his roots as a dancer.

Dave Aju remixes, DJ sets, and live performances are in demand at labels, clubs, and festivals across the globe. Following the success and praise for his body of work including several notable EPs and remixes as well as three full-length concept-driven albums on the Circus Company label, Mr. Aju is now more active than ever expanding his musical multiverse, with promising collaborations such as the voice of the Guillaume & The Side Effects and KAMM bands, one-third of Berlin-via-SF DJ power trio Something Something Something, along with new solo releases on the revived Music For Freaks and Matthew Herbert’s Accidental label. Dave Aju is truly the opposite of deja vu – we never know what’s coming next.
