JSTJR’s music is best represented by imagery and emotion rather than derivative subgenres and labels. Walk into the most thumping nightclubs and sweaty, wall-shaking basements from Lisbon to Los Angeles to Lima and you’ll understand the 27-year-old producer’s global sound that has earned him releases on dance music’s top labels including Mad Decent, Spinnin’, Monstercat, Waxploitation, Fool’s Gold, SMOG, and Insomniac Records.
The New England native has forged a love for regional sounds from around the world with his inherent tendencies for hip hop and experimental electronic production. This unique, hybrid and inclusive approach to dance music in a growingly homogenous market has earned him nods from an elite group of producers including Skrillex, A-Trak, Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, 12th Planet and Diplo — the last of whom JSTJR worked with directly as a credited artist on Light It Up for Major Lazer’s LP, Peace Is The Mission.
