Blaise DeAngelo (US)
At just a few days over 30 years old, Blaise James DeAngelo has already lived many lives in the dance music industry. Starting his career as a DJ in 2008, he’s since performed globally at notable events including Boiler Room, Ultra, EDC, Coachella as well as staple clubs like XOYO, Output, Kitty Su, Sound and Vision. From 2009-2012, DeAngelo led the Artist Relations team at rebel streaming service Grooveshark, using data-driven tools to help established and emerging artists from Diplo to Porter Robinson promote their music in new ways to some 30 million listeners around the world. From 2012 to 2017, DeAngelo headed the internationally acclaimed and 2017 Mixmag Top 10 label OWSLA with dance music pioneer Skrillex, released music from the likes of Skream, Zane Lowe, Tennyson, Hundred Waters & Chance the Rapper, and was named to Billboard’s 2017 Dance Power Players for his efforts at the label across music, film, fashion and events worldwide. In 2017, DeAngelo departed the label to focus on DJing and supporting the wellbeing of the industry full-time, partnering with IMS co-founder Ben Turner to create Remedy State, a wellness and creativity platform supporting the dance industry through mindfulness, exercise, and medical evaluation, which held its first sold-out retreat in partnership with IMS: Ibiza in May 2018. In October 2018 DeAngelo and Turner will launch a 24/7 health, wellness and lifestyle radio station on Dash Radio in partnership with Providence-St.Joseph’s Health.
