MAKJ’s single ‘Burning Rave’ is his first-ever release on Tchami’s Confession Records, and signifies a transition for him as he explores a different sound and direction in his music. The track has a rhythm that aims to bring excitement and adrenaline to the dancefloor as well as hooks to keep the crowd engaged.
MAKJ: “I’m excited to begin my journey with Confession as I move into a new dynamic club sound, while keeping the notable MAKJ flare alive.”
MAKJ–real name Mackenzie Johnson–grew up on the central coast of California and moved to China as a teenager to pursue his childhood passion for go-karts, eventually leading him to race professionally for an 18-month spell.
He discovered a love for DJing post races when he and his teammates would visit the Macao nightclubs–after that, the rest is history. He has now built himself a modest following as a DJ/producer in SoCo California and has ‘played some of the most prestigious music festivals in the world’.
‘Burning Rave’ is out now on Confession.
