Emerging Chicago DJ and producer, Ashton has released his debut EP, For The People today. The 4-track EP doubles as an acute display of his production sensibilities, offering a sampler of four different strains of house music. From a sax-drenched melody to a G-House weapon, to a minimal experimental house cut, Ashton’s For The People EP offers something for every type of house lover. Listen to it now below.
Of the EP, Ashton said, “This EP is something very special to me and is an anticipated project by everyone who has followed me from the beginning of my journey in music. I wanted to produce an EP that portrays my wide variety of tastes in house music.”
An EP debut of epic proportions, For The People is an ode to Ashton’s love and admiration for the sounds of his home base, Chicago. Since making his production debut in mid-2021 with “Dark Matter,” a broody, dub-heavy house weapon, he has gone on to perform at a wide range of local venues and festivals, including Electric Forest, North Coast Music Festival, Firelights Music Festival, Soundbar, Bass Station and more. His latest and final project of the year serves as his fourth original release and boasts a culmination of his experiences as he hones into his production identity.
