AuGustus

AuGustus has been creating electronic music for more than half his life.  From learning to play the keys, sampling, and creating tape loops as an early teen, his heart was set on a life of music.  This love has evolved into a multi-fasceted approach which now includes video, animation and projection works to compliment original audio material and remixes.

Whether producing, performing, or DJing, AuGustus is comfortable working in a number of mediums, as well as styles.  His body of work is diverse, under a variety of associated names and labels.  From ambient downtempo and minimal jazz, thru left field beats and electronica, to house and techno, AuGustus works with a number of different sounds, tempos and moods.  Citing influences as diverse as Guem, Nine Inch Nails, The Ummah, Toumani Diabate, Chet Baker, Brian Eno, Burial, Henrik Schwarz, and Radio Slave, AuGustus produces and plays unique music with a focus on intricate rhythms and carefully crafted sounds.  When asked to explain why he chose to produce and DJ, he quoted an anonymous piece of graffiti which read, “without music, it just wouldn’t be fair”.
