Biography

BIOGRAPHY

Tsunami (Erik Johnson) knew from the first time he heard electronic music, he had found his calling. Introduced to the genre by pioneers such as Prodigy and The Crystal Method, he slowly began to expand his knowledge of this newly discovered sound. Upon getting equipment of his own, Tsunami began to practice religiously, teaching himself how to mix, scratch and become a well-rounded DJ. In mid 2008, he slowly began to emerge into the nightlife scene, playing underground gigs, parties, and smaller shows at local venues. Now an established artist, Tsunami continues to grow as a performer, and has developed a style that is all his own. From sharing the stage with top national and worldwide talent and playing countless shows at venues all over the United States, the first few years had already been monumental for Tsunami. With the start of the next chapter, he set his eyes and ears on becoming a renowned producer of the music he fell in love with, and in a few months had already released widely recognized bootlegs and started work on original tracks. At the young age of 23, Tsunami was invited to play the 2011 Ultra Music Festival in downtown Miami, as well as teamed up with longtime friends to start a nightlife event production company known as "United2Nite", which continues to throw successful events in many cities around the US, as well as spawned the ever-popular "House Music Saved My Life" clothing line. To kick off 2013, Tsunami joined forces with longtime friend Bobby De Maria to form the DJ/production alias Kings Of Class, a collective of their musical careers and a new outlook on the years to come.
