Review

Dave Aju returns to Circus Company for his third EP, this time a collaboration with The Invisible Art Trio whose spiritual jazz stylings work well with Aju’s free approach to house music. The A side “Be Like The Sun” is a deep dancefloor cut with an addictive bassline, hypnotic vocals, slick hand percussion, reverberating horn stabs, and a powerful breakdown. wow! On the B side, “Timing is Everything” goes deeper with beautiful dark chords and a wild synth lead building over the top, while a huge bass tom hit, live snaps and ticking clock keep the beat, so nice! The final and title track “Love Always” is a warm minimal slow-burner with a bubbling bassline, expanding vocals, fat handclaps, swirling psychedelic pads, and a sweet flute riff to finish it off. Perfect to warm up or cool down a set for a summer party, road trip, or headphone listening. Love will Always be here indeed!

CCS021 in the media

Claude v Stroke (Mothership/Di: “Very creative and cool. Don’t know when I will use it but it will use it!”

De:Bug (GER): “Irgendwie schafft es das Label immer wieder Vocaltracks zu machen, die aus House, selbst der skurrilsten Art, eine eigene Vision von Pop machen. "Be Like The Sun" (Tip für alle, die so sein wollen: rise and shine!) ist ein nur dezent souliger aber dafür um so deeperer Track mit unerwarteten Claps, stocherndem Groove un losholperdem Saxophon mittendrin und dennoch voller Reduktion und pumpendem Bass. "Love Always" führt das Thema auf strangere Art fort und dürfte wohl zum eigentümlichsten an Vocalhouse gehören, was dieses Jahr überhaupt erschienen ist, und mit "Timing is Everything" rundet man das Ganze noch sehr elegisch und bekifft mit flirrenden Windspielsounds und sehr bluesigen Noten ab. Ich wette, in einem Jahr releasen sie auf Circus ihre erste Free Jazz Platte. bleed•••• ”

Giosuè Impellizzeri aka Dj Gio: “In this release I like so much the vocal samples mixed with special and hypnotic downbeat. The sound is similar with old USA releases of the 90's...”

JAY HAZE (Tuning Spork): “ "This record is a fuckin killer, jazz, funk, and serious groove equal madness on the floor... after i heard this joint i asked myself...shouldnt i live somewhere a bit more sunny”

John Tejada (Palette rec-Poker: “ "The A side is really killer. A really original ep."”

Mike Shannon (Cynosure): “Some great west coast style beatdown house from Aju! Plus a tweakin a side makes a mean combination. Another great Circus release! ”

NICK HÖPPNER(My My,Playhouse): “ "I like Dave's eclecticism a lot. He manages to throw jazz and lots of other influences into the pot, without ever running the risk of sounding "jazzy". very original, he da man!"”

SEUIL (Einmalens, Minibar): “ "Dave Aju always had this soul and weird feeling in his music...from his context work to his Circus Company eps..he keep his sensitive music in a floorway....This time with the "Love always ep", full of voices, and acoustic feelings he kick hard. With this anthem "Be like the sun", he remind us how it can be hot during summer, and for sure during the upcoming autumn...a killer cut perfect for afterhour as well as peak time, the 2 other tracks are great too!!, some more stripped down shit for your mind!! sick 12", congratz!"”
