AJ Christou has already accomplished what many artists strive to achieve. A master on the decks, skillful producer and successful label owner- AJ has garnered support from many of the biggest names in the industry and rightly so. With Loco Dice and The Martinez Brothers fully championing his music, he is set to become one of the main players in tech music.
AJ’s entry into the music scene started with a weekly residency at the renowned Sankeys in his hometown Manchester. Firing out captivating sets from the age of 17, AJ’s drive and talent was instantly noticed by many. He briefly relocated to New York in 2016 to focus on producing and was signed to Cuttin Headz within a year. His EP ‘What you think’ was an instant club smash and was shortly followed by a remix of Jesse Calosso and Jean Pierre’s ‘Under the Covers’ EP on Leftroom. More recently AJ teamed up with Caleb Calloway to release their ‘Sweet Senses’ EP on Rawthentic and featured on The Martinez Brothers album series- Remixed Part 3.
In 2014 Christou founded Celesta Recordings- a label focused on underground minimal and progressive techno. Within 3 years the label has accumulated some of the world’s biggest artists including Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, wAFF and Davide Squillace. Next year the hype is set to continue with European showcases, a Celesta Sounds mix series and major releases in the pipeline.
