Arjuna breathes music. Already at a young age this unrestrained pure-bred Amsterdam producer found his way to his parents’ New Age shop, discovering experimental world music and ambient. Fueled by his first experiences with electronic music, thanks to artists like Johannes Heil, Anthony Rother and Der Dritte Raum, he laid the foundation for his own distinctive melodic and energetic music style. In the meantime, after some years filled with critically acclaimed releases and live shows, Arjuna managed to fulfill his reputation as musical talent by far.

His first release already delivered him a Top 5 hit, when he and rapper Willie Wartaal (from popular Dutch band ‘de Jeugd van Tegenwoordig’) formed one-off duo AKA The Junkies and came up with the lovely gem ‘Konijntje’ (little rabbit). Easy to say, the song got the whole of Holland wobbling on its foundations. For Arjuna this also meant the start of a series releases on labels like Einmusika Recordings, Gem Records, Wolfskuil Records, Manual and international imprints like Traum, Trapez and MBF. All were met with raving reviews, renowned online music editorial 365Mag even recommends his records to everyone who wants to know what electronic music sounds like in the future.

Arjuna’s style moves on the borders of ambient and tech-house, containing parts of classical film music, but remains danceable at all time. His productions are saturated with intense synths and melancholic melodies in which dark electronic elements get alternated with warm sentiments. Like no other he knows how to stow a particular feel out of the speakers, seeping in your ears and unleashing emotions. A description perhaps most fitting comes from Amsterdam ‘night mayor’ Isis, claiming Arjuna “makes the human sound through the machine”.

With his live sets Arjuna already made fame on venues and events like Mystery Land, Dance Valley, Valtifest, Loveland, Paradiso, Amsterdam Dance Event, FFWD Dance Parade, All is One, Studio80, Stubnitz and Welcome To The Future. Right now, nothing seems to stop this Amsterdam skulker sharing his passion for music with the rest of the world.
