AJJA est un artiste éclectique aux multiples talents, qui canalise sa créativité à travers des carrières parallèles de musicien/producteur/dj, manager du label Peak Records, graphiste et artiste de tatouage. Né à Londres en 1975,  il grandit sur la route avec sa célèbre famille d’artistes de tatouage et voyageurs. En voyageant dans le monde et en fréquentant des scènes artistiques variées, il est exposé à une force créatrice constante et commence à jouer de la guitare et à composer de la musique dès son enfance.

Bien qu’élevé dans une ambiance rock’n’roll et funk, Ajja se tourne graduellement vers la musique électronique vers la fin des années ’90, ce qui le pousse à explorer de nouveaux horizons numériques.

Ajja est un membre fondateur du label suisse «Peak Records» ainsi que du très apprécié «The Peaking Goddess Collective», un groupe de chill & psytrance qui fusionne instruments live et machines électroniques. Il est aussi la moitié du projet «Yab Yum», un renommé duo de psytrance nocturne.

En 2005, Ajja commence son projet solo qui lui apporte vite une reconnaissance internationale. Ses performances live très appréciées, où il fusionne son expérience psychédélique et l’amour des rythmes funky, ont fait d’Ajja un habitué des plus importants festivals et parties de la scène psy mondiale. Son premier album «Psychogenica» sort en novembre 2007 sur Syncronize Records et est reçu avec beaucoup d’enthousiasme. Après quelques années de concerts et travail en studio intensifs, son très attendu nouvel album «Tulpa» sort en février 2012 sur Peak Records.

Pas satisfait avec tant d’activité, Ajja compose également de la musique pour le théâtre, s’occupe du graphisme des albums de Peak Records avec sa compagne Tanina Munchkina, crée des applications web et travaille comme artiste de tatouage dans le studio de famille en Suisse.

Energique, enthousiaste et surdoué, Ajja est un artiste à ne pas manquer !

AJJA is an eclectic and multi-talented Swiss 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 to a world-renowned family of tattoo-artists and travelers, Ajja began playing guitar and composing music as a child. Reared in a rock’n’roll and funk atmosphere, he first concentrated on these musical styles, writing hundreds of songs, recording albums and playing in numerous bands during his teenage years and early twenties. At the end of the nineties, his interest gradually shifted towards electronic music, causing him to explore new digital horizons.

In 2002, Ajja and friends Master Margherita, Dymons and Flooting Grooves created The Peaking Goddess Collective, a chill & psytrance band that fuses live instruments and electronic machines. Their debut album “Organika” was released in 2007 and is considered a top-notch chill album. Even now it is still played in chill outs and on radio stations all over the world, and has featured in numerous documentaries.


In 2003, Ajja, along with his partner Tanina Munchkina and their friends Master Margherita and Dj Gaspard, founded the psychedelic trance label Peak Records.


The same year also saw the birth of Yab Yum, the fully digital project shared by Ajja and Dj Gaspard. Their debut album “Nocturnal Emissions”, released in December 2006, is still widely praised in the international psytrance scene.


In 2005, Ajja started his eponymous solo psytrance project. Since then, his highly acclaimed live sets have rocked many a dancefloor around the world, including most of the major psychedelic trance festivals and events. His debut album “Psychogenica” was released in November 2007, on the Irish label Syncronize Records, and was enthusiastically welcomed by psy-lovers around the globe. Ajja’s second solo album, “Tulpa”, was released in 2012 and quickly took its place next to “Psychogenica” in the heart of his appreciative public.

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

 

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