New York native Justin Blau is a progressive house producer who creates music under the moniker 3LAU. After growing up playing drums, guitar and piano, he discovered electronic music in 2011 while he was a student at Washington University. He cultivated a rabid following DJing late night college parties and eventually launched his own 3LAU Your Mind Tour, in 2012, expanding his audience into national territory.
When Chris Brown made his recording debut in 2005, he was 16-years-old. Brown's first album, a danceable mix of pop and hip hop, went on to receive commercial success and led the artist towards a promising career. However, the artist's reputation has been marred after he pleaded guilty to a felony assault against his former girlfriend and fellow R&B star Rihanna in 2009.
