LA-born and Berlin-based, Galestian’s roots in electronic dance music stretch back to LA’s underground music scene of the 1990s. He began making a name for himself on KUCI 88.9 FM in 2003, where he opened the studios to world-renowned artists such as Carl Cox, Dubfire, Above & Beyond, and Armin van Buuren. In 2018, he signed to Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto Black label and was featured as a guest on his Planet Perfecto Radio show (episode 383), reaching over 27 million listeners in 70 countries. His monthly ‘Global Entry’ radio show is syndicated worldwide on outlets including Mambo Radio 89.4 FM in Ibiza and di.fm. His mixes have been heard on SiriusXM Satellite Radio, iHeartRadio, and terrestrial radio stations all over the world. His most recent collaboration with Oakenfold called “Summer Nights” celebrates Perfecto Black’s 50th release and has been featured on Dancing Astronaut, DJ Mag Latin America, and many other publications. From Burning Man to Sankeys Tokyo and Exchange LA, his love for music is as unstoppable as his love for travel. Gallivanting through North America, Europe, and Asia, he has shared the stage with artists including Fehrplay, Grum, Tritonal, Chris Lake, Matthew Dekay, Lange, Aly & Fila, Frankie Bones, and countless more. His distinctive music style remains difficult to pin down, covering a wide spectrum of melody-infused genres like deep and progressive house, melodic techno, and beyond.
