A forward thinking DJ/Producer from LDN...
Disc Jockey for the last 12 years+, Producer and Controllerism Tutor for the last 5 years. Currently teaching weekend controllerism & Disc Jockey skils classes at a reputable Music & Arts school in London (artpeggios.com).
Having been a seasoned raver/go-hard-or-go-home type of skanker since the dawn of time, Ashman’s love for music has never been in doubt! His passion for Dance Music however, is something that has grown and flourished in recent years due to him arriving at a musical crossroads and finding solace within a niche of the UK dance music scene that he has always admired, celebrated and supported. @Ashman__DJ had been a House & Garage Disc Jockey ever since learning to mix on an old shoddy pair of Soundlab DLP1 belt drive turntables back in 1999. It was always a natural progression for him to move with the times and latch onto the HOUSE/TECH/BASS sound which has grown massively in popularity in recent years. Moving into IDM & EDM had not been something he had thought too strongly about until an experience that could only be remembered and referred to by his team (Prehnite PR.) simply as: 'euphoric' - at an event many of you know and love: Southport Weekender. It is fair to say that this experience changed AshMan as a DJ. He was taken more deeper into his musical journey than ever before: it altered and enhanced his perception of the music, raving/clubbing, the scene, it’s people and brought new light to his dreams & aspirations as a DJ. Since this time he has been on a mission to further embrace ELECTRONIC MUSIC and spread his own uplifting, moving, creative sound throughout many venues and nations bringing people together and promoting positive vibes and energy to all. Right now the scene is stronger than ever in London and Ashman Dj is one of many a dedicated London House DJ keen to make his mark. Ashman DJ has an eclectic style and will often crossover through many different genres during a set. Current sounds Ashman DJ spins will range from: Deep/Tech/Minimal/Tribal House, Nu-Disco, Broken Beat, Techno, Bass, Electronica and Garage. As well as progressing within the London House DJ scene, Ashman DJ is also fast becoming a name to look out for in the fresh new sound of "G-HOUSE" or 'gangsta house' with his mixes and production gaining much attention on the underground circuit. Some of the top venues Ashman DJ has played HOUSE music at in the capital city include the likes of: Village Underground, PACHA london, Sound, Platinum Bar, Blag Club, YOYO, Plan B, The Liquor Station and Surya London. He has also held regular shows & guest shows (as a House DJ and host) on a number of leading radio stations including the likes of: Envy Online, Blaze-Live, Urban Fm, DeJaVu Fm and the award winning Freeze fm. Ashman Dj has also been a Resident London House Dj for the flagship Westfield branch of a well known London-wide chain of Health & Fitness establishments known as: GYMBOX [As seen on TV: Channel 4: 'Fat Fighters']. At present, Ashman DJ is beginning to develop a healthy following as a House DJ in and out of London due to the consistency of his high energy mixes and uplifting sets: both live and recorded. People are also beginning to take notice of his production skills under one and all of the many mysterious aliases he goes by! 2016/2017 will see a string of releases independently and via various underground labels.
