Versatility remains the key to longevity. Any artist must be able to deliver regardless of the setting, whether it's in the studio or on stage. For Morgan Page, it doesn't matter where he is. His number one concern is sharing quality music. As an artist, DJ, songwriter, and even radio show presenter, he continually offers a unique and undeniable perspective, evolving with the times. No matter what he's working on, he delivers for the audience.
Page has become a seismic presence at festivals such as Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Big Day Out, and many more worldwide events. In 2012, he was nominated by the IDMA's in the "Best American DJ" category alongside Skrillex, Kaskade, and Deadmau5. Two Grammy Award nominations are credited to his name, and his 2011 full-length album, In The Air, debuted at #1 on Beatport's "Top 100 Albums" Chart and #6 on Billboard's Heatseeker's Chart, while the single reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay Chart and resided in the Top 10 for a staggering 25 weeks. With all this along with sales figures that put him over 600,000 digital track sales and YouTube views that surpass 19 million, it's no wonder the Wynn Las Vegas tapped him for a prestigious residency in 2012 and Sirius XM gave him his very own radio show—aptly titled "In The Air" (on its 162nd episode and counting.) Even with all of this, he shows absolutely no signs of stopping. As a veritable tastemaker, this trailblazer is now taking EDM to new places altogether.
Welcome to the age of Morgan Page…
Project 46 made an undeniable impact on the progressive house scene this year, on a meteoric rise that started when their breakthrough Monstercat release Reasons featuring vocals by Andrew Allen went straight past Tiesto to the #1 overall spot on Beatport.
Living at opposite ends of the country has not slowed down the steady flow of productions from the Project 46 studios, as Ryan and Thomas find time to post new tracks on their Soundcloud page at least weekly. Their refreshing mixes of originals, remixes, bootlegs, and mashups have kept fans engaged and drawn massive support from followers across the
Fast forward a few months, and releases on SPINNIN and Manufactured Music combined with their solid studio output and touring schedule earned Project 46 a well deserved placement on the Top 100 DJs
list, squeezing in at #100, joining Richie Hawtin and Deadmau5 as the only Canadians to make this year's poll.
The title "musical prodigy" is often reserved for a child or young person having extraordinary musical talent or ability – we call him Walden.
Cobra Starshipʼs smash hit "You Make Me Feel" (Fueled By Ramen/Decaydence), Zoe Badwiʼs "Accidents Happen" (Neon Records) and Rebecca & Fionaʼs "Luminary Ones" (Neon Records) each received the remix treatment before the now 18-year-old Sydney native John Walden was even old enough to enter the venues where his music was on high rotation, and as he swiftly gathers acclaim, it's no surprise that artists like Estelle, Marina and the Diamonds and Paper Crows are all lined up for mixes.
Walden's debut EP "Brightness" is a twisted blend of styles and sounds; the title track, best described as soaring piano-driven progressive house, received an unheard of double feature on Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 show in the UK, drawing support from international heavyweights Afrojack, Ian Carey, Michael Woods, Morgan Page, Roger Sanchez, Tiesto and Tommy Trash to name a few.
But if it wasnʼt for a school field trip to Sydneyʼs Powerhouse technology museum, none of this might ever have happened. During the visit, Walden and his classmates were given a demo of the audio workstation software Acid Pro, and the 12-year-old was immediately hooked. Despite a complete lack of musical training, he got himself a copy of Acid Pro and began to experiment, using all the samples and loops he could get his hands on to start concocting tunes. This musical output varied wildly, veering from ambient one moment, to techno the next, and on to jazz the moment after that. But when he was 13, Walden discovered the Clubland compilation series, and his path into dance music was assured.
After brief flirtations with happy hardcore, hard trance and electro, his sound emerged - a dash of Avicii, a pinch of Deadmau5, and a heavy helping of Wolfgang Gartner, but more importantly that intangible thing that makes an artist stand out... originality. Waldenʼs sound most closely resembles, well, Walden.
Before long, Walden had created himself a profile on ReverbNation and within a couple of weeks, Big Beat Records, the dance label of music industry royalty Atlantic Records had discovered him and instantly snapped him up.
John Walden's journey is just beginning, and the futureʼs looking bright...
