CAROUSE: DEMUJA

23:00-03:00 £5 / £7.50 / £8

For the second instalment in the Carouse Sunday series, we present to you… Demuja (Nervous RecordsFreerange Records, MUJA).  Operating out of Mozart’s hometown Salzburg, ex-drummer and breakdancer turned beat-maker Demuja is slowly but surely rising as a name to watch in the house scene and extended club horizon. We are inviting him down to Bongo Club to make his Edinburgh debut!  After playing in cities like New York, Paris and Berlin in 2009, Demuja took his turn in the production game. Influenced by the likes of Kerri Chandler, Motor City Drum Ensemble and BICEP, Demuja quickly discovered his releases on reputable labels such as Freerange Records, Traxx Underground, Nervous Records, 124 Recordings and Shadow Child’s Food Music brought about a lot of attention…the good kind. With both his DJ and producing career on the rise Demuja in 2016 launched his very own label, MUJA. With 3 EPs already under its belt and the first vinyl-release ‘Mary Janes Theory’ an instant sell out, “Demujas Disco Cuts” followed the same path. Most recently, 2018 saw him release Hidden Paradise and more recently Classic Warrior, both receiving fantastic reception and setting Demuja on a fast track to being one of Houses biggest stars.  Support on the night will come from Carouse Residents Vigile and Ali. TICKETS available via residentadvisor.net
