Justin Van Der Volgen is an American DJ and producer living in New York City. Known for his extended sets and varied musical style, he’s equally comfortable in foggy warehouses, dirty bars and seaside festivals.

Having released music across respected labels such as Golf Channel, ESP Institute and Running Back, his productions receive support from small and big room DJs alike. 2012 saw the release of the Edit Channel XXX 12” which has since gone on to become one of the biggest selling and most played edits of the last decade. Other notable works include his track Clapping Song and remix of Soft Rocks’ “Talking Jungle”.

Justin currently runs the My Rules record imprint, where he has a hand in the production of every release. The label not only provides a platform for all of his recent solo
outings but also offers a stylistically broad range of releases: from his remixes of the likes of dance music heavyweight Todd Terje to Japanese new-wave group The Creams.

As a DJ Justin has traveled the world extensively with appearances at major venues such as Lux, AIR,
Panorama Bar, and Robert Johnson.
