Europe has some great talents out there! One is Justin MAES, a young yet very talented producer and DJ from the Netherlands! But why are we telling you this?! Well, it’s simple! As Kpopeurope strives to promote and spread K-pop in all its facets, we absolutely want to support different talents, who can be labeled as enrichment for the European K-pop scene!
Justin, the friendly and easygoing Dutch guy with Indonesian roots, is only eighteen years old, yet he is no plain rookie anymore. In fact, he’s been producing music for more than three years and has already achieved some great deals. The European talent is under the wings of AREIA CREATIONS, a global K-pop style entertainment label, which is well-known for its awesome K-pop remixes. Being part of such a great community full of experienced producers and DJs can only be fruitful when it comes to someone’s own music career. Thus, Justin does not only collaborate with other great individuals, but releases his own solo tracks as well.
Being an independent producer and DJ like he is, Justin releases his works under two different labels, with one being the electronic dance music label GLOVEL RECORDS and the other a Korean DJ-label called WSR TRAX. One of his recent solo releases is called “Welcome (Original Mix)” and functions as the leading track of his newest EP named “Progressive Expression”. But Justin does not only create his own music, he is also doing is own vocals on some of his songs from time to time. This is pretty impressive, considering the young age of his.
So what is this boy up to now?! Well, at the moment, he is working with Flash Finger of Beat Burger (SM Entertainment, V-Entertainment) and Newton (Discovery Music, V-Entertainment) on some cool fresh tracks. As we were lucky enough to hear some parts of their newest work a few weeks ago, we can already see these two guys releasing an official K-pop remix album somewhere in the future.
But that’s not all. Like a true workaholic, Justin is also working on a new project with Asia’s most successful female DJ called Nicole CHEN. Moreover, the famous DJ showed him some love by supporting him in her latest Podcast earlier this month. However, with all this great support from already established artists, he is not forgetting his roots and friends back home. Earlier this year he formed a duo called “Serious Gentlemen” together with his best friend Ivar Stoops. While these two are still figuring out their first steps together as a duo, we can already foresee some great future work coming from them.

Author’s comment: Please tell me if you like this new topic/section on Kpopeurope. If this article gets a nice respond, I might try to introduce other European talents (whether they’d be producers, DJs, remixers, dancers, choreographers, designers or others) on a regular basis. I personally think we should give all great individuals out there a platform to express and promote themselves.
