About

Aaron Hedges has done a lot with his love of music. With both inspiration and motivation, he said good-bye to his friends and family in Washington, DC in 2004 and made the 5000-mile move to Berlin. With his laptop, music, and purpose in mind; Aaron knew that is where he had to be if he wanted things to happen.

The road has been one of do-it-yourself for Aaron. After sending out his first E.P. to numerous different labels and being rejected by all, he took the hands on approach to make his dreams a reality. Starting his own label, District of Corruption, Aaron found success with his first single Watching Me. A remix on his first E.P. found its way onto Detroit techno legend, Jeff Mills, mix cd / dvd Exhibitionist and Aaron knew he was on the right path.

DoC has been pushing limits and boundaries by working with some of todays most well respected techno and house artists while still remaining true to the underground by breaking new artists. DoC features releases from Dan Curtin, Isometric, Jambi, Mirweis Sangin, Beaner, Akiko Kiyama, Mecanique and Aaron himself. Recent DoC releases have had dj support from the who's who of the techno world: Richie Hawtin, Riccardo Villalobos, Michael Mayer, Loco Dice, Jeff Samuel, Someone Else, Tobi Neumann,Troy Pierce, Benno Blome, Jeremy P. Caulfield, M.A.N.D.Y., & Anja Schneider.

Aaron was exposed to dance music at a very young age. His parents met in a gay disco that was a converted church in Seattle. From the youngest age he remembers dancing around the house to his fathers disco records. But the musical influences did not stop there. Aaron was saturated with music since his father was an audio/visual librarian. Aarons taste acquired at a tender age.

Aaron started attending the George Washington University in Washington, DC in 1996. It was only one week of class until he dropped the introduction class to his major in International Affairs and started taking electronic music classes. Highly inspired by his electronic music instructor, Steve Hilmy, Aaron pursued classical music training in piano, ear training, music theory, and harmony.

During his 8 years in Washington DC Aaron held residencies in such clubs as Red, Pearl, Cobalt, and made guest appearances at numerous parties such as Buzz and Velvet. Now Aaron has already traveled the world over to bring his music taste and dj skills. Such destinations include cultural centers as New York, Paris, Berlin, and Capetown,

And that is just the beginning of the story

    i love the genre of this... slow ass house is such a perfect description... it gives me the feeling of being somewhere between awake and falling asleep... slightly no longer in control and enjoying it
