DGN 015 – Hour 2: Justin Michael Guest Mix (October 2013)

Signed to Ultra Music, Native Californian Justin Michael may be better known to date for his Billboard and Beatport chart success achieved through his progressive house and electronic-based output, but it’s this love of hard rock and 90s grunge that is now seeing him develop a new sound fusing big room electronica with rock influences; and one that is, for now, all his own. Tune in and hear the uniquely solid sound that is only Justin Michael.

About Justin Michael:

Signed to Armin Van Buuren’s Armada Music, Justin’s latest single – ‘Eyes Closed’ featuring Saint Motel’s A/J Jackson – is already a top 20 hit on the Beatport progressive house charts, sitting alongside cuts from Avicii, Sander van Doorn and Hardwell, and mirroring the success of his first single on Armada, ‘Too Late Tomorrow’, which reached #12 on its progressive house charts. ‘Eyes Closed’, however, is a different dancefloor beast.

Blending big room synths, progressive house and contemporary electronica with soaring guitar solos and the rock-edge vocal of A/J Jackson may sound like nothing you’ve ever heard before, but that’s because it is. ‘Eyes Closed’ demonstrates Justin’s growth as an artist, and showcases a sound that is, for now, all his own. A reinvention? Justin prefers to call it a progression of his career as an artist.

As an Ultra Records artist alongside Tiesto, Deadmau5, and Calvin Harris, Justin enjoyed international acclaim on the back of ‘Her World Goes On’, a single produced & co-written alongside friend Bruno Mars, with whom Justin has clocked up serious studio time over the past few years. ‘Trouble’ featuring Heather Bright, meanwhile, hit #24 on the Billboard Dance Charts and, as one of the vocalist and songwriter’s first collaborations in the electronic scene, reinforced Justin’s talent for nurturing emerging artists.

But it’s not just with new artists that Justin has enjoyed success; he’s been commissioned by major labels Warner, Sony and Atlantic Records to remix major pop and rock stars including Linkin Park, Jason Derulo, Ludacris, Ciara, Toni Braxton and American Idol runner up Adam Lambert.

Indeed, it’s Justin’s studio work that sets him apart from countless other producers around the world. What you hear under the Justin Michael name is all Justin Michael; he’s as comfortable in the studio as he is playing to club or festival crowds. Drawing on Dutch heritage on his Mother’s side, it’s perhaps fitting he’s now signed to Armin’s Armada Music. Working alongside the Dutchman from his base in Los Angeles, Justin is well placed to take advantage of the United States’ insatiable appetite for electronic dance music (EDM) while crafting cutting-edge sounds that fit Armada’s diverse repertoire.

As more and more artists converge on Los Angeles for inspiration, Justin is continuing to link with both new and established talent from both in and outside the EDM scene for exciting collaborations. Regular tours to South America, Asia and across the United States provide further inspiration for the studio; whether he’s at Club Womb in Tokyo, Escape in Amsterdam, exploring the rhythmic confines of Brasil or opening for Kaskade at sold-out nights at Hollywood’s Paladium, Justin’s output continues to transcend genres, geographies and cultures.

About Sander van Doorn:

Thought to be a technical and musical genius by many, Sander van Doorn is without a doubt one of the world’s most essential, influential and popular DJ/Producers in dance music today. Sander has become synonymous with excellence – both production wise and in front of the thousands he plays to, nightly. He is truly one of the strongholds in dance music. A generation defining artist, that reshapes our perception of what dance music can be and he does it all with that electrifying Sander van Doorn-smile.

With two full length albums, numerous hit-singles, remixes of the worlds biggest artists, sold out gigs in all major venues and festivals worldwide, his own successful record label ‘Doorn Records’ and a weekly radio show, it’s almost impossible not to have come across the name Sander van Doorn at least once in your life.

Every successful artist’s story reads as a fairy tale and Sander’s begins back in 2004, with the release of ‘Loaded’. The production skills he showed in his first releases literary ignited an earthquake in the international EDM community and catapulted him in the top-10 of biggest DJ’s worldwide.

Hailed and hyped by all the big names, his typical ‘SvD-style’ productions topped the club charts worldwide and resulted in his first full length album ‘Supernaturalistic’ (2008). More big names started knocking on his door and via collaborations with Robbie Williams (Close my Eyes), his renowned remix of Sia’s ‘Girl on Cocaine’ and international radio hits like; ‘Love is Darkness’ and ‘Koko’ which was premiered by Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1, reached the #1 position on Beatport, The Cool Cuts Chart and the DMC UK Buzz Chart. Sander continued to work hard and the fruits of his labour resulted in his second album ‘Eleve11’ (2011). This gained him even more stardom and allowed him to perfect his already infamous live performances.

While most artists take a short break after releasing an album, Sander kept spitting out A-class releases like ‘Chasin’, ‘Nothing Inside’, ‘What Did I Do’ with Block Party singer Kele, ‘Drink To Get Drunk’, ‘Who’s Wearing The Cap’ with Laidback Luke and ‘Kangaroo’ with youngster Julian Jordan.

In January 2013, Sander released ‘Joyenergizer’, a monster hit with a perfect balance between techy tribal intro beats, an incredible progressive melodic break and deep electro house sounds. ‘Joyenergizer’ truly offers the best of three worlds and reached the top of all Dance Charts globally; #2 in Beatport’s main chart and a #1 position in the DMC UK Buzz Chart.

In March 2013, Sander unleashed ‘TEN’ together with Mark Knight vs Underworld, which stormed directly into the top ten in Beatport’s main chart and we mustn’t forget to mention the beautiful artwork that was done by MM (Maxim from The Prodigy). Back from Miami playing at Ultra Music Festival, Sander’s new release ‘Into The Light’, collaboration with DubVision is set for April 29th.

Headlining all the big festivals around the globe, producing new tracks & with special collaborations coming up, 2013 looks like it’s going to be another big year for Sander.

About Tristan D:

It all started back in ‘95 when Tristan, still a youngster himself, first started tuning into pirate radio stations from his home in Brighton, religiously soaking up the electric sounds of Brit A-listers Graham Gold, Judge Jules, Danny Rampling and many more. Tristan soon became hooked on the pumping underground sound of house music and before long decided that this would, and could be his future- since his early youth, all he wanted was to be a DJ.

Tristan set his DJ career into motion at a remarkably ripe age of 14 when he decided to start promoting his own club nights called Twisted. He kicked off the Twisted parties in a number of underground clubs in Brighton and London and soon secured a reputation as a talented young DJ and promoter. A few years later, at the still very young age of 18, Tristan landed a residency at his favorite London club night Peach @ KOKO, where he frequently shared the decks with the talented Eddie Halliwell, Simon Patterson, Markus Schulz & many more. Soon after, he also began playing regularly for Serious @ The Cross, London

Tristan’s long term partnership with BBC Radio 1 DJ Judge Jules has kept him at the forefront of the industry. Working full-time alongside a legend in dance music, Tristan has managed to remain on the cutting edge of music production, and gets to spend his summers with Judge Jules hosting one of Ibiza’s busiest club nights, Judgement Sundays @ Eden in San Antonio.

Tristan’s DJing has taken him all around the world playing with world renowned DJs including Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk & many more. His style ranges from the Teky Maximal side of backroom house up to the more banging uplifting Trance.

As a producer, Tristan found success from the get-go. His collaboration with diffused music genius Anthony Brooks in 2006 got signed to Big In Ibiza records, taking them to the prestigious Miami WMC and catapulting Tristan into stardom in the studio. Since then Tristan has had countless tunes played on BBC Radio 1 and remixes signed to some of the worlds biggest record labels including Ministry of Sound (Data Records), Spinnin and High Contrast.

Tristan’s talent doesn’t stop there though. Tristan is also in the midst of a progressing Radio career; he has hosted shows on Ministry Of Sound radio, Fuzion FM & Sunshine Live in Germany.

Tristan’s diversity and skills behind the decks have made him one of the UK’s most versatile and hardworking DJs.

Whether he’s playing a 20,000 capacity arena or a 200 capacity club, he rocks it every time bringing every ounce of energy to his sets and taking his crowds on a sonic journey into the best sounds dance music has to offer.

This summer you can catch Tristan every week @ Judgement Sundays at Eden, Ibiza as well as at London’s famous Gallery nights @ Ministry Of Sound. Tristan also promotes his monthly club in London, remaining one of the top promoters in the city.
