POSITIVE VIBES 2 DA MULTITUDE!- SING YOUR BODY ELECTRIC - STREAM YOUR MUSIC ECLECTIC! - MayJAH a.k.a G-ZeuSS/DzizUS
DU DU AH was started by two guys in NYC : Dejan Kostic a.k.a Mayjah, at the time attending songwritting
course at "Parsons School of Design" & Wayne Adams. Influenced by arrival of Hip Hop, that first phase was
more about "soundscapes" & Rap, using guitars, bass, rhythm machines & vocals (Kostic's world),keys, synths
& vocals (Wayne's world). After returning to Belgrade, Dejan disbanded his still popular "New Wave" outfit;
called the "I Group". The band with 2 singles, 1 E.P & 2 Abums , all on PGP-RTS; Serbia's biggest label.
It was a risky move, knowing that "I Group" was doing well in Yugoslavia and even sold 10.000 copies; on
Russian-tough to break- market. "New York experience actually brought me back to my James Brown/Sly & The
Family Stone/Spencer Davies Group/Motown/Stax/Atlantic roots."-Dejan.
Vuk -Sax & Keys stepped in to replace Adams. That phase was "crowned" by "Me Tarzan You Jane" limited
edition EP for major YU label: PGP RTS. Innovative yet radio friendly, "Tarzan" was by YU standards huge succes.
It was the first Rap/Toast track to be released in Eastern Europe. Enters "Primitive Dance" full length Album,
by YU standards FM Radio friendly and very successful (sold 10.000+ copies), showing Dejan P.A. Kostic's
songwriting talent in it's full (f)light.
DU DU AH was moving into more song oriented direction. Meanwhile playing gigs throughout
Eastern Europe and oddly enough club dates in Cairo, Egypt. Recording hit single "Romance" for Croatian
"Jugoton" label brought DU DU AH even larger audience and playing larger halls. Many appearances on National
and local TV stations throughout ex-Yugoslavia.
During the Balkan Wars Band was strongly engaged in pro-peace benefit appearances;getting banned from most
radio and TV stations. In mid 90's recording album "Ritual" for small indie record label. Currently promoting
latest "Eloquent Delinquents" album as one man band consisting of Dejan P.A. Kostic A.K.A. Mayjah:

I dislike mystifying BS, but REALity is: it is a powaful cultchAH crossing mantra & it truely did hit me
from *ABOVE*! HowzDat, since "dudu" is not exactly associated with steppin' in2 HIgher ground - DU-B-ous
talking?! Meister MayJAH thus spaketh: nAH, I went 4 it after finishing the first demo & it's chant-like
chorus contained DU-DU-Ah phrase that worked like miracle. Rationaly: it has a ring to it & it's sound;
resembling early R&B/Pop "DU wop" vocal style was a plus. Here comes tha P-line: finding out w\clear
head that *DU DU AH* happens to be an ancient Tibetan chant, also sounding like a part of Islamic prayer
- instead of stroking my ego; strenghtened my dedication to majestic music-making craft.
