Five Tracks: AJ Christou

British DJ, producer and label owner AJ Christou has made a lasting imprint on the music industry, thanks to releases on the likes of Moan, AVOTRE and Knee Deep In Sound.

Alongside his own productions, AJ also heads up the Celesta Recordings label, where in the past he has brought us music from heavyweights like Luciano, Matt Tolfrey, Ricardo Villalobos and Stacey Pullen.

The latest sound to come from his own studio, finds him debut with the newly launched London label Frame Music, the release, titled Cute & Freaky, will include two original tracks alongside a brilliant remix from Archie Hamilton.

We caught up with him following the release to get five of his favourite set inclusions, when clubs are open of course. Get the full list, including words from AJ Christou below.

Traumer – Luxuria
Label: Gettraum

Traumer has got to be one of my favourite producers, his groove is insane! I love the way this track slowly progresses one element at a time! 10/10.

Unknown Artist – Untitled A2
Label: Who Is Pablo?

Not sure who made this because they decided to keep themselves anonymous, but the track is sick! Perfect for midway through a set!

Son Of A Gun – Le Vol
Label: Ba Dum Tish

Love this record! Proper club track, the drums are sick and the way they have used the organs is crazy!

Jaden Thompson – To The Light
Label: Classic Music Company

Jaden has been killing it, had the chance to play this track a few times before we went into lockdown and it always goes off! Sick vocal, sick bassline, sick label!

Derrick L. Carter – Squaredancing In A Roundhouse
Label: Classic Music Company

Derrick Carter is king! He made some timeless records, this is one of my favourite!

AJ Christou’s Cute & Freaky EP arrives November 6th on Frame Music.
