Justin Credible is an LA guy through and through, but his rise as a more-than-credible radio and nightclub DJ runs parallel to the few years he spent as a full-time Las Vegan. The current on-air host of several shows on LA’s legendary Power 106 called Sin City home for a while starting in 2002. “Las Vegas fit my lifestyle very well,” he says. “People ask me if I miss it, and I do because it never closes. It’s just super-fun.”
The pace of LA is perfect for him now, but he’s still in Vegas frequently, spinning at Tao, Drai’s, Intrigue, and this weekend, Jewel. “Both the new clubs [Jewel and Intrigue] super-lived up to the hype, and the energy and atmosphere at both parties is great. I love those rooms.”
Credible is also playing around California, along with Chicago, Denver and Cleveland, but he’s making time to expand his endeavors in music, entertainment and fashion. First up: working with other producers and artists including YG, Jeremih and G-Eazy on some big, festival-style remixes.
“Being on the radio right now is like having a front-of-the-line pass,” he says. “We are exploring that exact formula and want to make stuff that can go on the radio and also play in those big rooms. It’s crazy to me now that these big pop hits are coming from our world and have our elements. I’m definitely on that, and then on the other side, working on some more street hip-hop records as well.” Justin Credible at Jewel at Aria, October 21.
