DJ Dave Aju changes the very core of experimental EDM
US-based experimental DJ Dave Aju (born Marc Barrite) draws inspiration from diverse genres of music like jazz, rock and hip-hop. We catch up with him before his performance at the JW Marriott.
It’s more interesting and imaginative. Plus, you can separate your work from yourself. Also, legally it can be beneficial, just ask some birth-name DJ about taxes and border issues when flyers match their passports!

Fantasy: Crab fisherman, because it’s ridiculous and crab is delicious.
Reality: School counselor, because kids need to open up and must be listened to more than ever.
