2econdclasscitizen / Bio

Brighton based 2econd Class Citizen, makes folk music for the digital age. Sometimes psychedelic, often complex and always moving, his sound is hard to define but easy to fall in love with.

With a series of critically acclaimed releases garnering praise from luminaries such as Ninja Tune legend DJ Food (Who went so far as to invite Aaron to collaborate on a track for his own album), 2econd Class Citizen’s music has long been astounding listeners in all corners of the globe. Cementing the affection of his loyal following through frequent European Tours and remixes for artists such as The Herbaliser, Dj food & Dday 0ne his new record A Hall of Mirrors, on Dday one’s US label Content Records is his most accomplished music to date…

Produced and recorded in the disparate locations of his hometown of Brighton (UK) and Innsbruck (Austria). It features collaborations with a succession of underground heroes such as Mykah 9 (Freestyle Fellowship), Canadian singer Graciellita and Bobbie Watson from psych folk legends Comus. Aswell as this it features an array of talented Austrian musicians...
The album builds on his trademark sound - lush instrumentation, dusty break-beats and shimmering melodies that veer from ethereal to menacing with surprising deftness.

The new LP is the latest instalment in a distinguished career spanning over a decade. Highlights include his astonishing debut album A World Without , released on DJ Scientist’s Equinox Records (Berlin) featuring singer/songwriter Ceschi Ramos from the US and rapper/wordsmith James Reindeer. A Gate-fold 12” vinyl release of his second album The Small Minority followed, and an array of EP’s, limited edition vinyl postcards and digital releases such as his ongoing “Old Folk Wine” series of psych-folk re edits.

In his live sets 2econd Class Citizen recreates the complexity and depth of orchestration he has become known for, using sound editing software, live drumming and scratching to keep a strong improvisational aspect, and often embellishing performances with the introduction of guest musicians and vocalists.

In addition to frequent European Tours with the likes of Ceschi, Glen Porter & Buddy Peace he has performed at festivals including Glastonbury and Soundwave (Croatia), sharing stages with the likes of Hidden Orchestra, Buck 65, B Dolan, Dj Food, Loka, Dosh, The Q4, Gong and many more.

listening to 2econd Class Citizen’s meticulously-crafted sonic conjuring will ensure this remains the music you will lose your heart to...
