"A relatively new face on the international scene, Dave Aju has been an important part of the San Francisco-bay area electronic music community for nearly 10 years, first as a DJ and now as a producer. His debut release appeared recently on the Circus Company label from Paris, and Context is proud to present the second of many. On 'Dive and Lie Wrecked,' Dave excavated his sample bank from a handful of scratched up LPs found at a garage sale for 25 cents each. Realizing that most of them were live recordings, he focused in on the idiosyncrasies of the live environment: stage interjections, crowd noise, and room ambience, looking for the sounds that most listeners would neglect. Out of these elements, he has crafted a multi-faceted six track EP with beautiful noisy textures, edgy percussion, warm bass, and a healthy dose of minimal funk. The two middle tracks will get the dancefloor rumbling, but the six tracks together make for an engaging listening experience from beginning to end."
