Justin Blau, AKA 3LAU, is a rarity in the music industry: A successful recording artist, DJ, and producer whose main goal is not fame, but helping others. Raised in New York and Las Vegas by parents who emphasized the importance of charitable work, Blau left college, where he studied finance, and the promise of a career in business to pursue his dream of making music. He went on to release a string of well-received original tracks, including “How You Love Me,” “Is It Love,” “Fire,” “On My Mind,” “Hot Water,” and his latest “Touch,” as well as remixes for Rihanna, Katy Perry, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande, and Alesso — all of which have racked up millions of streams. He also built his reputation as a must see live performer, appearing at such major festivals as Electric Zoo, EDC Vegas, and Lollapalooza, and tours extensively internationally. But unwilling to take and not give back, Blau has used his business savvy to parlay his success into doing good. In 2016 Blau launched Blume Records, an independent label with a ground-breaking model that harnesses the power of streaming to raise money for charitable causes.
Elephante is the recording and performing moniker of Tim Wu, a Los Angeles-based EDM DJ/producer known for his big-room progressive house anthems and remixes of artists ranging from Clean Bandit to Lorde. He generally tends to produce pop-leaning vocal dance tracks, but he dips into slower, trap-inspired numbers as well. Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1989, Wu began playing music at an early age, receiving classical piano training before teaching himself to play guitar. He graduated from Harvard University in 2011 and initially tried to break into the music business as an acoustic singer/songwriter before switching to electronic dance music. He started out creating remixes before producing original tracks, and his first EP was released in 2013. Since then, he's released dozens of tracks and remixes, with songs like "I Want You" and "Age of Innocence" receiving millions of online streams. His debut full-length, I Am the Elephante, appeared in 2016. "Troubled," a collaborative single with singer Deb's Daughter, appeared in early 2017. ~ Paul Simpson
