This month Mr Justin Blau, aka 3LAU, is working his way even more into the hearts of all of us at TMN. He has such a great story and has risen insanely fast from regular college kid to mega artist in just over two years. He’s a Las Vegas native who is finishing up college in St. Louis all while exploring the wonderful world of electronic dance music. In awe? I know I am. So on this fine day we were able to sit down with Justin and get to know a little bit more about this incredible young artist who has taken the EDM world by storm.
TMN: As always Justin we just wanted to say thank you for being our artist of the month for February it is a true honor to have you on board and we are tickled pink to get to spend one on one time with you.
Justin: And it’s an honor to be a part of TMN! Been following you guys from the start! It was always a goal from day one to be featured on the blog, even in a simple post, so being a featured artist is HUGE! Thank you!
TMN: Let’s start with a few ice breaker questions. You are a Las Vegas native, something I have only heard a handful of people say in my lifetime. What was it like growing up there? I imagine going to see Barbara Streisand or Siegfried and Roy was not a typical Saturday afternoon.
Justin: It was definitely an experience, but I never had much to do with the tourist activities. Vegas is similar to LA, same weather, similar people, just everything is toned down a bit more. It’s a great place to be to relax when you’re not caught up in all of the action on the strip.
TMN: If you were any Las Vegas casino game, which would you be? A rowdy game of black jack perhaps?
Justin: Black Jack all the way, shit’s unpredictable.
TMN: Now we know you attend college at Washington University in St Louis, you are a senior correct? Tell us, do you have typical college senior experiences? Care to share any story of a c-r-a-z-y night? We won’t tell your parents, promise.
Justin: haha well… I ended up taking a leave of absence to focus on my career for a bit, I was still performing a ton though while I was still in school. It was pretty hard to balance all of it, and I honestly didn’t get to party at all outside of the shows I was playing. Continue reading
