Where do you want to go?
Away from our last year please and quickly.... We experienced some problems, which are still being dealt with..But now feel we are at one with our Vision / Wisdom / Purity / Strength / Love / Peace / Victory and are ready to take on the world. So we are to visit as many festivals as possible around the globe over the next years. To introduce our network to other like minded people. Which in turn should help develope this evergrowing phenonemon that is trance......?

What do you do on that way?
Take in information, gather thoughts, meet new people and help to find those class acts who shall rattle dancefloors near you soon. Party on and travel!

The best thing you did in your life?
Get into music and meet the friends that I have!

What will you do next? any plans?
3 CDs this month to showcase our new direction...

Whats annoys you / inspire you?
This scene annoys me because I am human, I love the dance culture and the people in it. Its hard to make a career in this field, hence why I hold down 3 jobs at present to support my dream of releasing dance music that I like....But I do dislike all the back chat and gossip amongst trancers. This scene is smaller than we realise but it has the potential to grow. So live the dream and fly like the wind....

Your sense of life?
Stay in touch with our angels the rest shall follow....

Where did I get my label name ?
Ajuca Productions was founded in May 2001. the name 'Ajuca' came from the well known book ' Plants of the Gods', written by Schultes & Hofmann. The plant 'Ajuca' or 'Jurema'. Also known as the 'Mimosa Hostilis', this exotic incense from the plains of Mexico was brewed by the Atikum tribe to beckon the spirits of the caboclos.(Enchanted Beings of Light) to descend into the bodies of the mediums to promote healing while dancing the Toré. It is derived from the root bark of the bushy treelet and is also a ceremonial Brazilian drink called 'Vinho do Jurema'. Forming the basis of the Ajuncá ceremony of the Pankarurú Indians and other tribes, Jurema has now entered into Afro-American rituals in eastern Brazil. It is said to permit the partaker to "see glorious visions of the spirit land'.
