3LAU is Justin Blau, a progressive house producer and DJ with a background in piano, guitar, and drums. Combining top-40 acapellas with instrumental bangers, 3LAU kickstarted his career by producing signature mixes that transcend the traditional definition of a bootleg, seamlessly weaving tracks that breed dance floor filth. Now, the next phase begins, as 3LAU prepares to release his next original track and eventually sing on his own records. With a background in piano, guitar, and drums, Justin first produced indie/folk, but a trip to Sweden in the summer of 2011 opened his eyes to the world of house. Justin is adamant about combining his love for philanthropy and dance music, and his goal is to harness the power of the dance music movement to give back. Justin works with Pencils of Promise, a non-profit organization that builds schools for underprivileged children in developing nations such as Guatemala, Laos, and Nicaragua. Together they have already raised $25,000 to build a school in Guatemala, and now 3LAU is back on tour and back to fundraising.
