Representing the rich tapestry of New York nightclub history over the past three decades is a task few DJs can accomplish as adeptly as Justin Strauss. With an illustrious career that began at the age of 17, when his first band signed with Island Records, Justin’s journey reads like a chronicle of the music scene’s Who’s-Who. From the iconic Mudd Club to The Ritz, Limelight, Area, Tunnel, M.K., Life, Centro Fly, and beyond, he pioneered a distinctive sound that made him not just a sought-after DJ in New York but a globally acclaimed remixer and producer.

Collaborating with a diverse array of artists including Depeche Mode, Sergio Mendez, Tina Turner, B-52s, and Goldfrapp, Justin’s discography boasts over 200 records. His legacy extends to the present, where he captivates new dance crowds at venues like subMercer, The Standard, Highbar, Soho House, and Love. While many may not be acquainted with his storied history, they are drawn to his sets that seamlessly blend classics, rarities, and innovative beats.

For Justin, no musical genre is off-limits. His mission is to “connect the dots” between seemingly disparate periods and styles, introducing fresh sounds with infectious passion. Beyond subverting preconceptions about old and new, Justin inspires young DJs with his masterful skill and ever-youthful spirit. Undeterred by time, like the city he has kept dancing since 1980, Justin Strauss continues to make an indelible and everlasting mark on the musical landscape.
