AARON ROSS BIOGRAPHY:
Aaron Ross isnâ€™t your average DJ, in fact he doesnâ€™t have enough fingers to put in all the pies heâ€™s serving up. Having already made the move from playing at house parties and pirate radio to scale the great heights of the dance music industry, whether heâ€™s signing a future anthem or working the crowds into a sweat, heâ€™s doing it well.
After a successful run of A&R and promotion work with Virgin before heading up the team at Soul Heaven Records, Aaronâ€™s more recently been awarded the role of A&R Manager at Defected and Strictly Rhythm. Aaron has been be praying he doesnâ€™t have to re-write his CV anytime soon with his long list of job titles that include being a world renowned DJ, record label owner and production honcho.
â€œGiles Peterson is someone who I really aspire to, when I worked at Virgin part of me always wanted to work for Talkin Loud, Gilesâ€™ label. Phil Asher is my mentor though. He inspired me to start making music, I used to hang out at his studio, make tea and roll joints.â€
Since mastering the studio credentials, using the alias Fanatix, Aaron and production partner Neil Peace have notched up a batch of releases under their collective belt. Their single â€˜Love Connectionâ€™ featuring Alex Mills, proved to be quite a dance floor thriller, which has made way for the Fanatix LP. Dropping in February 08 on BBE guest appearances come from the likes of Shaun Escoffery and Sara Devine. Aaron Has also delivered remixes and productions for Major label acts such as Jamiroquai, Mr. Hudson, Estelle & Terri Walker.
Not satisfied with keeping the job centre out of work, heâ€™s ready to embark on his next challenge, heading up In The House, a radio show thatâ€™s set for worldwide syndication.
After spending the last five years at BBC 1Xtra, Aaron naturally sees this as the next step in his burgeoning broadcast career. â€œItâ€™s served itâ€™s purpose, in a selfish way I donâ€™t think I can get much more out of it… House is having a second wind and I donâ€™t play one sound, Iâ€™ll go in different directions, which I think is interesting for the listenersâ€.
Produced by Wise Buddha, whoâ€™s previously responsibilities include shows from Pete Tong and Roger Sanchez, the two hour session feature a selection of the finest house music. Expect everything from Aaron’s preferred soulful variety to deep techy favourites.
