Description:

AJJA S.F. LEU is an eclectic and multi-talented Swiss artist


AJJA is an eclectic and multi-talented Swiss artist who channels his creativity through parallel careers as musician/producer/dj, Peak Records label manager, graphic artist and tattoo artist.


Born in London in 1975 to a world-renowned family of tattoo-artists and travellers, Ajja began playing guitar and composing music as a child. Reared in a rock’n’roll and funk atmosphere, he first concentrated on these musical styles, writing hundreds of songs, recording albums and playing in numerous European bands during his teenage years and early twenties.


At the end of the nineties, his interest gradually shifted towards electronic music, causing him to explore new digital horizons. In 2002, Ajja and friends Master Margherita, Dymons and Flooting Grooves created The Peaking Goddess Collective, a chill & psytrance band that fuses live instruments and electronic machines. After performing in many parties and festivals around Europe, their highly praised debut album “Organika” was released in August 2007. Their second album is due to be released on Peak Records in 2012.


In 2003, Ajja, along with his partner Tanina Munchkina and their friends Master Margherita and Dj Gaspard, founded the psychedelic trance label Peak Records. Since its beginnings, Peak Records has become a leader in its genre, with a solid reputation and twenty released and counting.

The same year saw the birth of Yab Yum, the fully digital project shared by Ajja and Dj Gaspard. Their debut album “Nocturnal Emissions”, released in December 2006, has been widely praised in the international psytrance scene. They have performed with growing success worldwide from Japan to the United States.


In 2005, Ajja also started a solo psytrance project, under his own name. Since then, his highly acclaimed live sets have rocked many a dancefloor around the world, including most of the major psychedelic trance festivals. His debut album “Psychogenica” was released in November 2007, on the Irish label Syncronize Records, and was enthusiastically welcomed by psy-lovers around the globe. Ajja’s second album “Tulpa” will be released on Peak Records in 2012.

Not satisfied with so much activity, Ajja also composes music for theater plays, designs Peak Records covers with his partner Tanina Munchkina, and works as a tattoo artist in his family’s shop in Switzerland.
An energetic, enthusiastic and gifted being, Ajja is an artist not to be missed!
