After several years of sharpening his mixing and crowd-rocking skills at full moon parties, one-offs, and house parties, he decided it was time to break out, and so he made a move to New York City to see if he could conquer the Big Apple. Within a year of being in the north east, his shoulder was tapped by Scotty Marz, the founding father of Kingsize USA promotions, to become part of the crew and a resident DJ at the weekly Bounce parties as well as at their one-off events.
One year later he had built up such a solid reputation that he was recruited by Scott Richmond and Jonathan Kadish (aka Mr. Kleen) to work at the world famous Satellite Records in New York City. Justin quickly made a massive impact in the store and became the Breaks buyer and the stock manager for all three stores (Boston, NYC, Atlanta). Satellite offered the opportunity to not only be on the cutting edge of new sounds and producers, but also to be able to help cultivate the sounds of other DJs . After years of consistently rocking the north east became known as the “King of Breaks” in NYC, and an appearance at a massive NYC festival (6th Element) was so impressive that it even caught the ears of The New York Times.
