We’re taking Athens into the deep end this Friday at our Level Up! party at The Union. Level Up! pairs regional DJ talent with Athens based DJs playing house, techno and trance music styles.
Friday’s lineup features one of Columbus’ all time greats, Aaron Austen and Ohio University alum Jake Clemens making his Athens debut. Local support comes from Ohio University junior Entel (Anthony Bergamesca) and Dave Rave’s own DJ B-Funk.
One of Ohio’s top DJs, Aaron Austen will be making his return to Athens after a two year absence. Based in Columbus and creator of the music collective Run 614, Austen has shared the stage with some of the biggest DJs in the world, including Above & Beyond, Paul Van Dyk, and Tiesto. With over 20 years of experience, Austen’s performance will be like nothing Athens as seen in a long time featuring deep house, tech house and techno.
Jake Clemens started DJing after he graduated from Ohio University, and he’s been a big part of the resurgent house music scene in Cleveland.
