Dan Aux is one to move against the tide.
The Australian-born DJ arrived in New Zealand from Newcastle five years ago, moving
against the trans-tasman exodus, and moving onto our airwaves and festival stages.
A man of many laurels, Dan balances life as a DJ, producer, musician and radio jock
all at once. After arriving on Kiwi shores, he landed the perfect job at George FM as
the host of the George Selectah Show. It’s a gig that has allowed him to showcase his
incredible knack for seeking out the unusual and remarkable, against a populous who
are too-often content with the ordinary.
Balancing that musical curiosity with an acute sense for his listenership’s taste, Dan
always delivers on an upbeat, entertaining and genre-bending mix of your favourite
It’s a mantra he applies to every aspect of his work. From his collaborations with
acts such as highly accomplished producer P-Money and rising starlet Nina
McSweeney, to his cutting-edge remixes and impeccable performances across stages
at renowned festivals including Rhythm & Vines, Homegrown and Sounds On, Dan has
cemented his reputation as a DJ in demand.
In a career mile-stone late last year, Dan Aux mixed the George FM Yearbook 2012,
which took the biggest and best tracks from 2012 off the airwaves and into one knock
out collection. The album broke into the top 10 in the compilation charts.
Against a back-drop of inarguable successes, Dan is finally set to release his own
album ‘The Playlist’ in August this year.
