Aaron Ross

Aaron started buying records back in 1993 and immediately began bedroom DJing for hours on end, landing him a spot on local pirate radio station, Scandal FM. By the age of 15 he was playing at the radio station's localevents and club-nights, which he also helped promote.

After eventually helping manage much of the station, Aaron moved on to join a new collective of MCs and DJs called Young Guns - a talented crew specialising in the then booming Jungle scene, but also covering House & Garage, Hip Hop and RnB.

During this time Aaron had temporary work placements at various record labels including V Recordings, Island Records, BMG and most notably Virgin. He also found himself heading up the London pirate station Fresh FM as well as various studio and record label projects as part of NW10 Music. In 1997, Aaron was offered a permanent position at Virgin Record's club promotions department.

Throughout this time, his ears were really getting into the Soulful House grooves, a style he began playing on Fresh FM before taking his Soulful House show on to South London pirate - Flex FM.

He then became resident DJ at a weekly club-night called Missdemeanours - a spot that saw him spinning alongside the likes of Erick Morillo & David Morales.

Since then Aaron's tireless commitment to the scene has seen him looking after Virgin's club promotions as well being one of their A&R managers. He has also played a pivotal role in heading up the promotions for the legendary House music producer Todd Terry within his labels Sound Design and In-House Records.

In 2000 Phil Asher officially made Aaron a member of his long running, well respected DJ / production crew, restless soul.

In August 2002, the BBC launched 1xtra, their first digital black music radio station. Aaron was chosen to host the soulful house show every Friday night. The show has become a regular feature for house music fans worldwide.

In early 2003, Aaron joined forces with his good friend, Drum & Bass producer DJ Fresh of Bad Company, to become partners in Osiris Music & Pure Genius Publishing.

Now Osiris Music is set to release their 6th record, and Aaron's production collaborations are going from strength to strength. Rain People are in the studio working on a track with Ron Carrol, Graceland are just about to release a single with Billie & Fanatix have remixed Terri Walker, Blaze, Ultra Nate & The Sunburst Band amongst others and have a forthcoming single on Osiris featuring Kele Le Roc.
