Aether is the alias of Diego Chavez, a graphic designer and music producer based out of San Antonio, TX. Chavez also records under the monikers; Otic Angst and A.M. Architect in addition to producing tracks for the conscious based hip hop group Lotus Tribe and rock band The Panic Division. And yes you are right...he doesn't sleep.

As a child, Diego spent the scorching Texas summer days at his father’s art studio conversing with painters, surfing the internet, and daydreaming. While in high school, Chavez began skipping school to host jam sessions in his garage with his friends. Then came along Wu-Tang and Fruityloops and Chavez began making beats for his friends to freestyle to. It wasn't long before Chavez's sound began to mature and find a life of its own.

Chavez is a diverse producer capable of making rock, downtempo, hip hop, electro and experimental music but there is definitely a signature sound that carries throughout. Most of Chavez's music is structured around the gritty boom bap sound of East Coast hip hop but there is also a dreamy and romantic soulfulness that inhabits each song. "Artifacts", Chavez's first full length solo album, is no different. Each song on the album is lovingly sculpted and an expression of beauty, love, tragedy, hope and everything else that makes us human.

Chavez is quickly making a name for himself, having already released a handful of tracks on Exponential compilations as well as remixing and producing for various artists. His remix of Lykke Li's, "Little Bit" has already garnered much love from critics and listeners alike. It's no wonder that Chavez is considered to be one of the new producers to look out for.
