As another month passes and summer slowly fades away it is time again to present a new Resident Artist for the month of September.
There are many things to say about our new artist, for starters, this is not his first rodeo musically speaking. He has been DJing since his college days discovering that he loved making beats more than his other love, which was golf at the time. He moved from his home on the East Coast only a few years back to pursue and push his music making but he did this with his own sound. He started making bootlegs and sampling anything he could get his hands on and the biggest thing he could do for his music, he stopped caring what other people thought about his music.
If you haven’t figure it out yet then I guess I had better spell the letters out for you: ladies and gentleman, the incredible artist we know simply as TJR.
A product of the 90’s, TJR continues to show his originality in his music, DJing and producing sounds that blur the lines of house, techno and electro. Just like other musicians out there, TJR made all these beats for his own pleasure and then those songs were picked up and played by other artists such as Chuckie and Fatboy Slim and from there, TJR’s fan base and admirers only grew. That little known (or renowned) TJR tune called “Funky Vodka”? We were honored to premiere it on TMN and the song inevitably made its way to the #1 spot on Beatport, with great reason. And his recently released “What up Suckaz” also climbed its way to the #1 spot, again, because it is a song that deserves to be up there.
Besides being an amazing producer, TJR is also known for his captivating live performances. He has said that he realizes many artists today just stand in front of a computer screen for their shows but he believes stage performance is just as important as the music itself.
TJR is a musician who has made it a point to make the music he loves and in return, he has captured the hearts and ears of many fans. This month we are excited to get weird with this artist and learn just a little bit more about the man behind TJR and his undeniable success.
