Mackenzie Johnson, better known as MAKJ, uncovered a passion for mixing andDJ’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 by the age of 17 MAKJ was receiving 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.
His originals, edits, bootlegs, and remixes have received immense support from renowned artists such as Hardwell, Tiesto, Afrojack, Bingo Players, R3hab, Chuckie, Avicii, Nicky Romero, Nervo, to name a few.
With the support of these greats in his pocket, MAKJ is now thriving as a producer; he has a slew of new tracks slotted for release over the course of 2013, including releases on Hardwell’s Revealed label, The Bingo Players’ Hysteria Records, Nicky Romero’s Protocol, Michael Woods’ Diffused, and Robbie Rivera’s Juicy Music.
At only 23 years of age, Mackenzie Johnson has achieved an almost unfathomable amount of success. His dedication to his craft and ambition to surpass any and all competitors will further propel MAKJ higher than he could ever have imagined.
