Biography

Mazi (aka Audio Soul Project) is one of the most established House producers to come from Chicago. He began releasing music in 1994 and has created hundreds of original songs and remixes. He DJs all over the world and has been an A&R at several respected record labels including his own Fresh Meat Records, Gourmet Recordings and the much missed Afterhours. A DJ for 20 years, Mazi has visited clubs like Fabric in London, Space in Ibiza, Crystal in Istanbul, Q in Zürich, Avalon in Los Angeles, Masai in Varna, Level in Bahrain, Red Light in Paris and Simoon in Tokyo. As Audio Soul Project he has released two multifaceted albums, “Community” in 2002 on NRK ancd “Hip Shake Heartache” on Fresh Meat in 2011, moving elegantly between deep house, disco and more psychedelic cadences. His productions rely heavily on live performance, inventive synthesis, real machine music, creative sampling and swingy drum programming to capture a vibe that is as dynamic as it is authentically House. Mazi continually works on remixes; his recent credits include Joshua Iz and Chez Damier’s “Sentimental Love” on Vizual Records, Boogie Drama’s “Floating On A Cloud” via Real Estate Records, Dairmount & Berardi’s “Bass-Ment Tale” released on Room With A View and Nick Harris’ “Elementary” put out by Fresh Meat which has been licensed for an upcoming Visionquest DJ mix on Fabric’s critically acclaimed mix series.
