Gear up for a big one this week when house heads AJ Christou and Fleur Shore step into Mixmag HQ for a special Pioneer DJ takeover. Celesta Recordings founder AJ Christou has made strides over the years with his unique blend of house and techno, landing him on line-ups alongside the likes of Loco Dice and The Martinez Brothers, and an outing on the latter’s Cuttin’ Headz label. The DJ and producer leans into the sounds of progressive and minimal techno with his own label, Celesta, launched in 2015 featuring releases from some of the biggest artists in the world including Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, and wAFF.
Birmingham-hailing Fleur Shore also fuses distinctive sounds when it comes to her big room DJ sets and residency at LAB11. With influence from early hip-hop, house, & R&B and a record collection that extends back to the ‘80s, Fleur Shore’s experimentation produces some of the most infectious, groove-filled house tracks on labels including Cuttin’ Headz, Tamango, and Frame Music.
