Mackenzie Johnson, better known as MAKJ, uncovered a passion for mixing and DJ’ing at only 15 years of age. While living overseas in China as a professional racecar driver, the teenager grabbed hold of his first set of Technics 1200 Turntables. As he experimented with the new equipment, Johnson also took advantage of his foreign exposure and critically studied the technical nuances and styles set before him in the most popular overseas clubs. No longer would DJ’ing bejust a newfound passion for MAKJ; it soon turned into a thriving career path. As a 17-year-old Johnson made his way back to the United States and he returned with a unique outlook and greater ambition than ever before. The insight Johnson acquired abroad gave him incredible local momentum; Johnson found himself being repeatedly invited to DJ countless local University and Community College events and concerts. It was at this age that MAKJ also received priceless DJ’ing tutelage from one of the best in history, the late great DJ AM himself, who skilled MAKJ in the art of scratching over the course of several one-on-one lessons.

Johnson’s creativity and diversity as an artist have now carried over into the production field and his works have deservingly awarded him much critical acclaim and positive reception. His edits, bootlegs, and remixes have received immense support from renowned artists such as Hardwell, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, Fedde Le Grand, R3hab, Chuckie, Avicii, Laidback Luke, Adrian Lux, Swanky Tunes, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, and many others. With the support of these greats in his pocket, MAKJ is now venturing off into the realm of original production; he has many fresh new tracks slotted for release over the course of the next year, including several that Robbie Rivera has hand picked for his Juicy Music label. Additionally MAKJ is currently featured on the popular “Electric Sound Stage” station on iHeartRadio. His 60 minute mix shows are broadcasted weekly, with listeners returning week after week for his fresh new tunes and exclusive features.
