Few DJ's can say they have accomplished so much in the beginning of their careers as Justin Sheppard. Gifted with an innate musical talent from his biological father Rick Sheppard, one of the original singers from the world famous 1960's Atlantic recording group "The Drifters", and his mother an entrepreneurial entertainment pioneer, it was destined that his career would follow suit. Originally from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Justin trekked to Miami in 2003, eventually straying from his corporate American computer background. In 2006 he decided to follow his heart and delve into the DJ craft. Only two months after learning how to spin, Justin was offered his first gig opening for Deep Dish protégé Cedric Gervais on Sundays at Miami's hottest club Suite, achieving much respect right from the start, in this difficult industry.
Justin has quickly become a staple in South Florida nightlife after helming a 2 year residency at Suite Nightclub, performing at Miami's hottest clubs such as America's #1 dance club SPACE, LIV, Arkadia, Mansion, Prive, Set, Cameo (formerly Crobar), Louis, and Mokai, as well as continuing to build his other major US & International residencies that have included Dominican Republic & L.A. amongst others. To date, Justin's supersonic skills have landed him performances along side countless global superstar DJ/Producers such as Kaskade, Fatboy Slim, Dirty South, Sander Kleinenberg, Ferry Corsten, Fedde Le Grand, Sharam (Deep Dish), Mark Knight, Desyn Masiello, Calvin Harris, Markus Schulz, Wally Lopez, Joachim Garraud, Robbie Rivera, Martin Solveig, Chris Lake, Arno Cost & Norman Doray, Gabriel & Dresden, Armand Van Helden & many many more. And if that wasn't enough, Justin also created and produced the wildly infamous Versace Mansion Pool Parties in 2008, and currently three years running of "RX Pool Parties" the massive #1 weekly pool party in South Beach featured nationally on the Travel Channel in the USA. Over 145,000 people in the last three years have experienced Justin's music on the decks at RX Saturdays at The Gansevoort Hotel's Rooftop Pool, where he holds residency as head DJ and owner. Whether it's entertaining the likes of Carmen Electra and Dina Lohan which landed him in NYC's Page Six international celeb news, or performing with celebrities such as Ludacris, Justin has done it all in five short years and now rocks numerous clubs and events around Miami & the USA regularly.
Now in 2011, Justin hits the ground running with new music productions soon to be released on the highly anticipated Space Records label, and a new DJ residency with America's #1 Dance Club Space Miami; two of the world's premiere dance music stages. Influenced by the likes of Daft Punk, Desyn Masiello, Erick Morillo, Sasha and BT, Justin is beginning to make major waves in this vast sea of house music. Stay tuned and follow this young man's budding career, because rocking dance floors until the wee hours of the morning is just the beginning….
