Seattle native DJAO, aka Alex Osuch, is a producer/vocalist of electronic music: hazy bass, sung echoes, swung-out drums, zones. Alex began to produce in earnest after joining up with Dropping Gems in 2010, and his live performances have since evolved to their current state: a combination of singing, triggering, and dancing. His music covers a wide fuzzy swath of the electronic spectrum. It exemplifies the progressive tradition of mixing elements from different disciplines into a cohesive whole, all in service of a central harmonic vision. It confronts everything from sadness to relaxation to the warm revelation of a burden lifted. Behind it all is a profoundly mundane daily routine.
