Dave Aju is an American producer and DJ from San Francisco. Coming from a family of a jazz musician, Marc had some formal training and played drums for five years and piano for three years, also trying out a few other instruments. His biggest inspiration came through a brother, though, who introduced him to mixing and beatmatching, and Marc finally saw a sampler as a superior artistic tool combining all sounds and providing a creative freedom not available with a full commitment to one particular instrument. Largely influenced by hip-hop, Dave often mentioned such artists as Pete RockKRS-One and The Pharcyde alongside with anyone from Cajmere to Moodymann amongst his influences.
