Arjuna Schiks (NL)
With his sincere charm and melodic tunes Arjuna brings a smile to the Dutch melodic house and techno scene. Like no other he knows how to stow a particular feel out of the speakers, seeping in your ears and unleashing emotions with his own distinctive melodic and energetic style.
His productions move on the borders of deep house and tech-house, saturated with intense synths and melancholic storytelling melodies. Dark electronic elements get alternated with warm, dreamy sentiments, inciting people to both listen with their eyes closed and dance euphorically.
Arjuna has released original material on imprints such as Gem Records, Einmusika Recordings, Traum, Treibstoff, Wolfskuil and Burlesque Musique. His work is always met with raving reviews and his productions have already been remixed by the likes of Aril Brikha, Applescal and Nhar.
On stage Arjuna has made quite a name for himself with his live performances at clubs ands festivals such as Time Warp Holland, Loveland, Mysteryland, TrouwAmsterdam, Solar Norway, Kater Holzig and Wilde Renate. The list of cooperations to his name with live instrumentalists, film makers, poets and advertisers amongst others is also growing steadily, showcasing the broad diversity of his creative output. Appreciated for both his music and personality, Arjuna brightens up every dance floor he sets foot on.
