Space Jesus is the feeling you get when you travel through a wormhole in a
fresh pair of Jordans. Jasha Tull was born in New Jersey and raised on hip hop. With his
alarm set to NYC’s Hot 97 throughout elementary school, Jasha started making beats at
a young age, and created Space Jesus as a vessel to express his personal experiences
through music. With a focus on alien basslines, gangster beats, and future feels, the
Spaceman imprints his signature sound onto each genre he graces. After building a
reputation for his dynamic live performances, and with appearances EDC, Electric
Forest, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and beyond under his belt, Space Jesus continues to
explore the auditory universe in search of lower frequencies.
From the first glimpses of Robert Balotsky’s work as Buku, it was clear that the Pittsburgh native and graduate of Music Technology was onto something. With an effortless grasp on sound design and music theory, the young producer combines deceptively simple and emotive melodies, laden with resounding bass drops and intricate drum patterns.

With a love of drums rooting from childhood, his work reflects the obsession – emitting percussive elements only a trained ear could produce. Behind a kit since age 8, he followed the progression of handling duties for multiple bands throughout his adolescence. Once introduced to digital production, Buku took his techniques to stranger dimensions – he’s been pushing the boundaries ever since.

His early work has placed him at the forefront of a new wave of rising talent amongst East Coast producers. Garnering interest and plays from Starkey, Lunice, Paper Diamond, Shiftee, Clicks & Whistles, Kastle (to name a few) –the up-and-comer has been paving a promising road over the last year. With his debut release, ‘Slippy’ under the Slit Jockey imprint and a remix of Starkey’s ‘Command’ on Civil Music, Buku is poised to make much larger waves in the coming months: haters beware.
