LA-based DJ Blacklow (Jeremy Blacklow) grew up on the dance floors of New York City inspired by house music of the ’90s. In 2011, Blacklow finally listened to friends’ advice and took his love of music to the next level, playing bars, clubs & events throughout Southern California, before going on to become a successful DJ and producer who is now touring the world.
Blacklow’s sound is a high-energy mix of progressive house, classic house, tech house, and tribal house, with a trademark of soaring vocals throughout. He blends the old and new together seamlessly to create an incredible dance floor journey on every outing. A standard Blacklow set includes a heavy dose of throwbacks and classics, mixed with the latest tracks drawn from a wide array of inspiration.
In recent years, Blacklow has headlined at LA’s world famous HALLOWEENIE party (2012 – ’19), Halloween New Orleans – HNO (’14, ’15, ’17, ‘19), Provincetown at the Crown & Anchor (’15 – ‘19), ELEVATION gay ski weeks at Park City, Tahoe & Mammoth, Aspen Gay Ski Week (’19, ’20), San Diego’s OVERDRIVE and UNITE Music Festival (’16 – ‘19), The Black Tie Dinner in Dallas (‘15 — ‘18), Memorial Day weekend Pensacola (’15 – ’17, ‘19), White Party Puerto Vallarta, White Party Palm Springs, the Sundance Film Festival, and Tropical Fruits in Australia. In his hometown of LA, he can be heard regularly at The Chapel at The Abbey and EVITA. Blacklow has played around the world in cities including London, Houston, Denver, Sydney, Melbourne, DC, Calgary, and across Mexico, to Pride events in Seattle and Vancouver… and from Palm Springs to New York City.
Blacklow’s production work includes the highly-acclaimed 2016 update (with two full remix packages) of the 2001 anthem “To Be Able To Love” — featuring vocalist Brenda Reed — released on Swishcraft Music alongside George Figares. Additional Blacklow and Figares remixes include “Minute of You” (Dan Slater & JimJam feat. Nalaya Brown, Swishcraft), a funk house remix of “Scream Her Name” by Brazilian producers Vino Gomiero & ZONATTO feat. Dessy Slavova (Swishcraft), a tech house remix of Debby Holiday’s cover of “Girl From The Gutter” from DJ Brett Oosterhaus (Swishcraft), “Let’s Dance” (Ana Paula feat. Yan Lavoie, PUMP Records), “Bad Chick” (Seth Cooper + Trypsin feat. Sasha), a tribal after-hours take on Toy Armada & DJ Grind’s “St. Elmo’s Fire” (Swishcraft), Zedd’s “I Want You to Know” (feat. Selena Gomez), Iggy Azalea & Rita Ora’s “Black Widow,” Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” and “Baby Don’t Lie,” and Fifth Harmony’s “Bo$$” (Sony Music).
In 2015, Blacklow released a high-energy remix of Sara Bareilles’ Grammy-nominated anthem “Brave,” which was downloaded over 25,000 times. His solo 2018 remix of P!nk’s “Beautiful Trauma” rose to #6 on the Billboard U.K. charts. Other highlights high-energy takes on Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Cut To The Feeling” (with Figares) and “Party For One,” two explosive remixes of Ellie Goulding’s “Flux,” and the tracks “Faces” and “Better Days” by NYC-based singer Mila Jam.
Together with his LA-based production partner of the past two years, Stephen Jusko, Blacklow has put out remixes of several more Top 40 artists. Their first collaboration, a bootleg remix of Katy Perry’s “Never Really Over,” caught the ear of Perry’s manager, who gave them the studio stems for her next single, “Small Talk,” which quickly became their most downloaded and listened to single to date. Together, Blacklow and Jusko have also remixed singles by Lady Gaga (“Rain On Me”), Kesha (“Raising Hell”), P!nk (“Just Like A Pill”), Alanis Morrisette (“You Oughta Know”), Zai (“Clouds”), and more. In December 2020, Blacklow and Jusko put out their first single together, a cover of the ‘80s anthem, “The Warrior” with vocals by Audrey Callahan for Queen House Music, which quickly entered into the Beatport Top 100 Big Room charts. Two full remix packages followed in January and February 2021.
With so much momentum behind them, Jusko and Blacklow have several big new productions in store for the rest of 2021, including their first original track together. Hard at work on several new post-pandemic projects, Blacklow continues to be one of the most exciting DJ/producers on the gay party scene’s radar for the roaring ‘20s decade of dancing that awaits us all.
