Ajja

 

Ajja is an eclectic and multi-talented artist who channels his creativity through parallel careers as musician/producer/dj, Peak Records label manager, graphic artist and tattoo-artist.

Born in London in 1975, he grew up roaming the planet with his world-renowned family of tattoo-artists and travelers. Wandering across the world and bathed in various artistic scenes, he was provided with a constant creative drive and began playing guitar and composing music as a child.

Though reared in a rock’n’roll and funk atmosphere, Ajja’s interest gradually shifted towards electronic music at the end of the nineties, causing him to explore new digital horizons. He is a founding member of The Peaking Goddess Collective, a chill & psytrance band that fuses live instruments and electronic machines, as well as a founding member of the renowned night-time psytrance duo Yab Yum, a project which he now continues on his own.

In 2005, Ajja started his groovy solo project, and his debut album “Psychogenica” was released in November 2007, on Syncronize Records. His much appreciated live sets, fusing his twisted psy-experience with a love of funky grooves, have made him a fixture in major festivals and parties around the globe such as Boom, Universo Paralello, Glade, Antaris, Sonica, Full Moon and many more. Following the success of his debut album and a few years of intense touring and studio work, Ajja’s much-anticipated new album “Tulpa” was released in February 2012 on Peak Records.

Not satisfied with so much activity, Ajja also composes music for theater plays, designs Peak Records covers with his partner Tanina Munchkina, designs web applications and works as a tattoo artist in his family’s shop in Switzerland.

An energetic, enthusiastic and gifted being, Ajja is an artist not to be missed!
