The name 'aware' was chosen from a book by Alan Watts that describes the word 'aware' in Japanese, prononouced differently, as something undefinable, the bird lost behind a cloud for example. The English meaning also came to define 'aware' as a band who would use
the genre of lounge or chillout music to attempt to express questions in life.
Based between the U.K and Ibiza and recording their first music releases on a broken 4-track tape machine, many of their experiences came as a result of the many characters they encountered on one incredible journey through the years of 2000 to the present day during which time they became something of an underground success, predominantly in Spain.
The music they produced saw them perform their first gig in Ibiza to a handful of people at Ibiza's then fledgling venue 'Villa Merecedes' and the very next day as the opening live act for Cafe Del Mar's 20th Anniversary to a crowd of thousands, attracting the attention of relative newcomers of that time such as Ramon Castells and Andy Warbuton but also more established names of that time such as Pete Gooding, and Afterlife who helped guide them into the world of Sunset music Mark Doyle of Hed Kandi fame graciously giving them their first release.
They went on to perform as a band and DJ act throughout Ibiza up until 2014, endearing themselves to an underground native following, during which time they scored releases with Cafe Del Mar's label, Hed Kandi, Warner and React to name but a few. In recent years their music has featured in television and film both in the U.K and around the world, in 2016 Hollywood signed a deal with the band.
Despite this they have remained to this day just as elusive as the Japanese meaning of their name playing hide and seek across Ibiza the U.K and the mainland Europe, drifting between making music and pursuing other art related performance avenues. After being asked to provide music for the Ibiza tourist board in promotion of the island it was rumoured that they would perform again in Ibiza but so far the band remain just as ethereal.
