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 ANDR3X:

ANDR3X | ANDREW ANDREX | 3X are the multiple personas behind one artist with many passions. Based out of Orange County, California, ANDR3X has been involved in Electronic Music since the mid-80’s. From the moment he picked up his first Depeche Mode album, he realized this music was where he belonged.

In his early college years, he studied multimedia and worked as a computer technician. Later moving on to work for Yamaha Corporation and legendary synthesizer manufacturer EMU. He programmed several of their synthesizers and drum machines including the Yamaha AN200, DX200, and EMU XL-7, MP-7 along with the original Yamaha Motif keyboard. With all of his technical background, he eventually built his own studio and produced some of his first white label remixes under the name “The Nephewz.”

As if his passion for the studio was not enough, he also worked tirelessly promoting the music and culture during the 90’s Rave Scene. His “Subliminal” warehouse parties united the scene in Southern California with DJs such as Christopher Lawrence, Sandra Collins, and Mr. Kool-Aid to name a few.

Fast forward to the present and he is still as passionate about the music as ever. Ultimately progressing into a DJ/Producer/Promoter, ANDR3X is today committed to reaching out to all music lovers, exposing Electronic Music and connecting people on the dance floor.

Formerly a managing partner with renowned Electronic event production company Giant at the historic Yost Theater, ANDR3X’s involvement included everything from promoting, talent buying, to DJing, allowing him to gain a wide range of knowledge and experience from working with the best in the industry.

With a consistent weekly 9 year run in the business, ANDR3X shows no signs of slowing down. He currently has two weekly events: Element and Elektronik, each extremely unique yet with one commonality, genuine Electronic Music.

ELEMENT on Thursdays at Sutra in Costa Mesa. With the current explosion of EDM in the United States, Sutra has quickly proven to be a leader on the West Coast, providing not only premiere talent but premium club service Orange County has never before experienced. The hugely popular Sutra5 +1 event uniquely showcases six consecutive days of all-star EDM talent that is second-to-none; artists such as Calvin Harris, Laidback Luke, Paul Van Dyk, and Armin Van Buuren have performed to an intimate, sold-out crowd. (For more info www.sutraoc.com)

ELEKTRONIK on Saturdays at Avec Nightclub in Huntington Beach. Created by Andr3x himself, Elektronik is a weekly event dedicated to exposing all genres of Electronic Music as well as promoting new talent. As head of marketing and artist bookings, he has effectively cultivated an Electronic Music scene in Southern California while also helping to develop and brand many overlooked artists. Elektronik has successfully produced more than 160 shows and booked over 300 DJs in the last four years, from recognized headliners to up-and-comers. (For more info www.facebook.com/Elektronik-musik | www.facebook.com/3Xevents)

On the DJ and production end, ANDR3X is a resident for his own Elektronik Saturday weekly along with Element (www.sutraoc.com) performing regularly alongside international headliners. ANDR3X has shared the stage with ARMIN VAN BUURREN, FERRY CORSTEN, ABOVE AND BEYOND, ATB, GARETH EMERY, and COSMIC GATE to name a few.

In March of 2012, ANDR3X was invited by the massively celebrated Winter Music Conference (www.wintermusicconference.com) in Miami, Florida to speak on a panel seminar focused on event organizing and promotions as well as artist development and branding.

Currently he is working on a new mix compilation along with an artist album expected to arrive at the end of this year.

His current remix of French Indie Rock band Phoenix – 1901 received phenomenal support throughout the internet, charting #3 on Hype Machine (www.hypem.com).

His mix compilation “Believe In Music (Volume 1)” tells the story of the music and movement that brought him to this point. It’s been highly acclaimed by many as one of the best mix compilations that has emerged from the scene in several years.
