Here comes that month decorated with red and pink and way too many hearts. But here at TMN we are ready to shower all of our love on our next resident artist for the loving month of February none other than our friend Mr Justin Blau, known to all you wonderful EDM fans as the mind capturing artist 3LAU. The Las Vegas native, whose career making music began just two short years ago when he vacationed in Sweden and first discovered electronic dance music, has exploded onto the electronic scene. He’s a young buck at only 22-years-old and he is finishing his college career this year. You heard me right, this unbelievably talented artists also finds the time to learn about finances at Washington University in St. Louis. Finances and electronic music, now there are two combinations you don’t see every day. But that kind of describes perfectly who 3LAU is, something you don’t see every day. He grew up as many artists do with a musical background playing piano and guitar while serenading people with his singing. But it literally was not until 2011 that Blau decided to put all of that music talent to work for himself and started making mash-ups at college. The rest, as they say, is history.
He went viral overnight thanks to the help of fellow college students and music blogs the internet threw him into the spotlight going from a normal college kid to an artist whose YouTube videos had over 4 million views. Talk about a change of pace. After making remixes for none other than Zedd, Blau decided it was time to start making his own original tracks and sound which is where we find him today.
So this is the month of 3LAU. He is a man of many talents with a heart that is evident through his music and also his involvement with the charity Pencils of Promise. Making music, finishing school and making trips to Guatemala to build schools, this is one busy and incredible artist whose shows we cannot wait to check out.
