Artist Profile


UJI (Luis Maurette) is an Argentinian DJ, nomadic electronic producer, multi-instrumentalist, and half of the pioneering duo “Lulacruza.” His music is dance floor bound: rooted in various indigenous traditions while borrowing from the aesthetics and sound design of the future of electronic music.

Uji’s experimentation is carefully woven into multi-textured soundscapes. Most of the sounds we find in his latest album, Alborada, are field recordings. Uji has compiled a vast sound bank over the years throughout his travels, including a wide array of instruments from his collection such as; congas, cununo, marimba, balafon, charango, bombo leguero, sonajas, as well as analog drum machines, samplers, synthesizers and vocals. A multi layered assemblage with deep and rich textures from around the world.
