Biography

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 soon grabbed hold of his first set of Technics 1200 Turntables and the rest was history. As a 17-year-old, Johnson made his way back to the United States with a unique outlook and greater ambition than ever before. The insight Johnson acquired abroad gave him incredible local momentum; Johnson found himself repeatedly invited to DJ countless local university and community college events in his home town of San Luis Obispo, CA. 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 trained MAKJ in the art of scratching over the course of several one-on-one lessons. Honing and perfecting his skills over the past several years, MAKJ has DJ’ed at premier venues all over the U.S. including Avalon, The Hollywood Palladium, XS, Ruby Skye, Pacha, and Liv, and has also toured and played extensively all over North America and globally. He also performed at the 2013 Ultra Music Festival in Miami and earned himself a slot on the Main Stage at the inaugural TomorrowWorld event in Georgia. Fall 2013 saw MAKJ embark on his first cross-country bus tour with Bingo Players and Bassjackers which hit virtually every major market in North America.

MAKJ’s creativity and diversity as an artist have shown through in his production work with his tracks deservingly awarding him much critical acclaim and praise.
