DC’s Next Great Musical Ambassador If you don’t know him already, look out for one of the hottest DJs and Producers coming out of the East Coast ͞RussellRemix.͟ Hailing from Washington, DC, RussellRemix’s tracks have streamed over 100,000 plays across Soundcloud and Spotify, and he recently completed a tour in Las Vegas with award-winning DJ/Producer JackEL to launch his signing with FVYDID Records.
RussellRemix creates original and remixed tracks by combining Tropical, Soulful, and Progressive House sounds using Analog Synths and DAWs. He grew up in New England before moving to D.C. at age 18 to pursue a degree in International Relations and work at highest levels of government from Capitol Hillto the White House and United Nations.His love of music began at age 11, when he purchased his first acoustic guitar, and gained an early appreciation for jazz, funk, and disco from his father’s love for Bill Evans and Dave Brubeck. His jazz influences gave him the chance to play keys alongside a regionally-acclaimed jazz quartet that frequently competed at the Berklee School of Music in Boston and fueled his inspiration for combining the sounds of electronic pioneers like David Guetta, Daft Punk, and Calvin Harris with the sounds of Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind, and Fire. After moving to D.C. in 2010 and living in London for a year, RussellRemix became immersed in the electronic music scene through friendships with local DJs and Producers and began teaching how to make his own remixes and originals in Ableton and Logic from YouTube videos.
Two years later, he now holds residencies at clubs along D.C.’s famed U Street Corridor and in the Georgetown neighborhood, and performs regularly at some of D.C.’s most iconic venues like Hamilton Live, U Street Music Hall, 9:30 Club, Flash, and Soundcheck. He has supported award-winning artists like JackEL, Oliver Nelson, and Martin Jensen, as well as Grammy-winner Cedric Gervais. When he’s not playing club shows, he also
plays an occasional wedding and corporate function, and works as a cybersecurity consultant for a Fortune 500 firm. In the last two years, RussellRemix has produced popular remixes of POWERS’ hit single ͞Closer,͟John Butler Trio’s acoustic track ͞OCEAN,͟ and BLVK JVCK and H.E.R.’s hit ͞Mine Luv.͟He also just put out two singles in collaboration with JackEL this year for his hit singles ͞Alright, Goodnight͟ and ͞Tech House Rewind.͟ This summer, you can catch him performing shows at the Avalon Theater in Los Angeles, 9:30 Club in DC, and The Artisan Hotel in Las Vegas. He also looks to release upcoming tracks with the likes of Baby Sham, George Acosta, Jolee Nikoal, and JackEL while touring.
