Taken from his myspace profile:
Aries aka The Goat > has been into rave music since 1991 and hasn't looked back since. He was immediately hooked by the fresh sounds and new music that stood out from anything else he had heard before. Still at school and to young to go out to the nights he got his fix buying tape packs which soon progressed to djing, pirate radio, promoting events and writing the music itself. After being involved in the early nineties pirate radio station scene it was through promoting with friends "Lifted" in 1996 that his dj career really started to take off and in 1998 the dj partnership with Benny who ran the local record shop was formed . Benny & Aries have been residents for Autumn now Break Thru in Birmingham since 2000, Aries promotes his own event with friend Solution 'Above & Beyond' (with a new event for late 08) and are regulars on the UK dj circuit playing many events across the world including Compression (San Franciso USA), J.U.N.G.L.E (Leuven BELGIUM), Jungle Business (SERBIA), Rekyl (Stockhom SWEDEN) Break Storm (Barcelona SPAIN), Atomic Jam, House of God, BBC 1xtra LIVE, Glastonbury Festival, Flashback, Movement (London), Fixed (Birmingham), Transmission (Leeds), Accelerated Culture, Pyro Radio, Raveology, Break Out (Bristol) and many more.
He has been producing Music for just over a decade but more seriously over the past 5 years. the first outing on vinyl was in April 2005 on Co-Lab Recordings with the heavily supported "Herbsmoke" which was championed by Bailey and even made it onto BBC Radio 1 and the daytime play list of BBC's 1XTRA. (as did ''Brother and Sister'' on Roots records ) It was around this time that Shy Fx became aware of his music and asked for a promo of Herbsmoke. The link was forged and the next two pieces of music that were completed were snapped up for Digital Soundboy. Also released on vinyl is "Nuff Reggae Music" (Played by Zane Lowe BBC Radio 1) on Visionary's Lion Dubs label (002), ''Just Like The Rain'' on Lion Dubs (005) and ''Skankin Dub'' on Lion dubs (004). There are also remixes of ''Herbsmoke'' by the massive ''TC'' and almighty ''Visionary'' on Co-Lab and Pure Vibez (Benny, Aries & Heist's label) and there are a few tunes around on vinyl under alias names using the name ???? ! :) watch out . . .
Aries takes his name from his star sign and his main influences are Roots and Dub Reggae which will come as no surprise if you listen to his music or have heard him play out. His music is very unique and offers soul and depth that not only makes people think and listen but holds its weight and has maximum impact on the dance floor.
