Justin Xara is a true son of the mid-90s Lithuanian rave scene, captivated by its key elements – massive parties, flashing strobe lights and thumping techno music – back in 1997. Shortly after, he himself became one of the key members of this scene, standing behind the decks at most popular techno parties. Since then, the electronic dance music scene became much more intelligent and refined, and Justin Xara shifted gears from in-your-face techno to more subtle genres like tech house or, most recently, electro-tinged progressive house. In 2005, he and Art G, a distinguished Lithuanian producer, composer and remixer, formed CCCP, a project that proved particularly demanded abroad, with a number of well-received releases on such benchmark progressive house labels as Pure Substance and Innovate. Justin Xara is also one half of Mixmasters, one of the key gig promotion teams in Lithuania.
