Deejay Theory (Faction Sound Crew – SF)
Oro11 (Bersa Discos – LA)
Let’s welcome one of the top young producers in the global bass arena to SF for a huge edition of TT! With a brand new record on Mad Decent / Good Enuff and plenty of tricks up his sleeve from Baile Funk to Moombahton and back, the dancefloor bout to be lit all night .. Don’t sleep …..
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 24-year-old producer’s global sound that has earned him official releases on dance music’s top labels including Mad Decent, Fool’s Gold, and SMOG.
Hailed as the US ambassador of Buraka Som Sistema’s zouk bass movement in America, 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, and Diplo – the last of whom JSTJR worked with directly as a credited artist on Major Lazer’s Peace Is The Mission in 2015.
