Five Questions With Auro

Canadian artist, producer, and DJ Auro has released a new single, “Move That Body” featuring Jonas Music and Lucky Widmore. It’s sultry. It’s vibe-y. And it’s anything but a cliché, Auro and his collaborators assure.

“We didn’t want this to be a typical Latin tune talking about señoritas and far-off paradises,” Auro shares. “We wanted it to have an urban vibe and a universal message about love, and chance meetings with beautiful strangers.”

The track is a fitting testament to teamwork and technology.

“In this brave new world, ‘Move That Body’ confirms you don’t need to all be in the same room to collaborate and release meaningful art,” Auro shares from his home base in Saskatchewan.

Auro, otherwise known as Jordan Keith Schimelfenig was raised in the rural prairies of Canada and holds experience in many musical forms and formats, including guitar, drums, and synthesizers.

“Country music is what was playing on the radio where I grew up,” he recalls. “My parents were 80s ‘metal heads,’ and my grandfather was part of a bluegrass band.

“My passion, however, was in electronic music.

“I had the idea for a track with a Latin vibe after visiting Cabos, Mexico, and Lucky and Jonas decided that, lyrically, they wanted to have an urban vibe with a universal message about love.

“And so, ‘Move That Body’ was born.”
