A born entertainer, Maestro Harrell has music etched into his soul. Born to the city of Chicago and currently residing in Los Angeles, this ferociously forte DJ and producer has come to the table with talent that is quite simply- infectious. Maintaining the house music circle, Maestro calves electro and progressive material from start to finish while entertaining tropical house fusions in the studio. Introducing fresh sounds and a well-welcomed smile to an overcrowded dance music space, the Harrell presence has widespread acclaim following apprentice runs with the likes of David Guetta, Chris Lake and John Dahlback.
At the age of 3, the solo performance career of Maestro Harrell was somewhat unbelievable. Singing and dancing came naturally, lending itself to opportunities within the entertainment industry that one would envy. Before the age of 9 he had performed on Jay Leno where the lights radiated his musical youth and in a great way. By the age of 16, his production outlet became solid, savoring various genres and guiding a beautiful musical progression. Within three years he had been signed to Virgin records by Jermaine Dupri; repeating the dotted line action a few years later at Def Jam, before falling smitten to house music in his late teens.
Within the studio it is no surprise the Meastro core-drawn talent is solid. Gaining support from R3hab, Martin Garrix and Nicky Romero, his sound couldn’t be more real and in demand. Collaborating with Antoine Beck on ‘Higher’ out on Cr2 Records saw a peak at #30 on Beatport’s progressive house chart, while the momentum also drew high on ‘Drop It’. With Dzeko and Torres featuring Delora comes the next drop on Tiesto’s Musical Freedom titled ‘For You’. Taking to remixes, Maestro’s edit of ‘In My City’ for Priyanka Chopra nailed it via Interscope while upcoming duties for A&G on ‘Run With Me’ through Ultra Records is high on the Miami Music Week 2015 agenda.
With an imminent crowd, this dance music aficionado delivers. Sweetening the decks for Nero, Skrillex, Bassjackers, Sultan & Ned Shepard and studio friends Dzeko & Torres, he has the dance floor tappers out in full force, calving reckless drops from Avalon Hollywood across town to Exchange. Nailing a strict policy for quality in his work, Maestro Harrell moves into into the year with a grand musical hustle.
