Justin Kent

Remix Magazine says he’s “blasting the market into 2099” and the Discovery Channel calls him “the future of dance music.” International performer, inventor, and entrepreneur, Justin Kent is somewhere between starving artist and media mogul. Born in Orlando, Florida, Kent was brought up on a hyperactive diet of MTV and the Internet. Relocated to Boston for a whirlwind ride through the dot-com boom, he graduated from MIT then spent an action-packed stint hacking code at the original Napster. As a DJ pushing the limits of his craft, he started to bring abstract video into his sets. One day it occurred to him, “What if you could scratch TV?” Within a few months, he had invented the world’s first MIDI Turntable, an optical system for DJing video. Billing himself as an “Experience Jockey,” he’s since performed across the US and around the globe with his signature EJ Turntable – spinning a web of music video countdown vs. dancefloor underground. Being struck by lightning on his 25th birthday catalyzed his drive to lead the evolution of music into the 21st century. An outspoken poster child of Generation E, you have to see this rising video star to believe.
