::: A-SKI, “CHANGE THE MOOD” LP NOW OUT ON ITUNES :::
Over the past three decades, LA-based A-Ski has become one of the most trusted musical tastemakers in the U.S. and beyond. As a DJ, producer and musicologist, he consistently raises the bar in performance and showmanship. His style, often described as “refreshing and energetic”, has earned this music aficionado a loyal following and a reputation as “the life of the party.” His eclectic selections, turntabism and skillful approach to MC’ing, make him a triple threat to his peers. Refusing to rely on gimmicks or trends, A-Ski’s reputation is solely built on a sincere love of music, dance and atmosphere. “Improving the quality of life through sound” is his mantra, which has maintained the longevity of his career in music.
From KCRW to The Do Over to song placements for clients like Nike, Ralph Lauren and Sports Illustrated, A-Ski has been at both the forefront and behind the scenes in Los Angeles and his fingerprints are all over the music scene there.
Join us early from 9-10pm for a special listening session with A-Ski and his new album “Change the Mood.” Purchase limited edition merchandise and chat with A-Ski and be the first to download his album. And stick around as ULTRAWAVE blazes the night with a guest DJ set from A-Ski himself — celebrating his birthday with us!!!

just a taste of what’s going to be on album #2. I play keys and created the arrangement..more funk based.
Due to various time constraints. I am no longer part of the JAZZTONIC weekly event. As a co founder, it was fun creating ideas & concepts in addition to personally hand picking many of the acts & talent that graced the event while lending their support, love and time. More importantly, having the opportunity to work w/ a great supporting cast. We o/b/o Unique74 wish the event continued success and creativity.
On a sidenote…stay tuned for CHOICE…10/26…in a very Unique way..Also , the debut of my full length release is coming together as well the official digi-release..look out for “CHANGE THE MOOD” in early to late November!
