I like to shock people I work with. "Wow" and "let me get on that" or "how did you do that" are the most said phrases when people are in the studio with me. I'm always developing myself into a better producer. I like to keep people guessing. It's good to be known as a trend setter!


Hi. My name is Justin, and I am addicted to music. - "Hi Justin."

What started as a hobby became the front-line in my life years later. Everyone had always told me to run from it. All of my teachers, family members, friends, and just about everyone else I encountered told me that I should be more focused in my school work and that I would never get any where in music. There was never a time when I didn't feel like I had to prove something to someone else.

Self taught everything, however I believe I got my "music" genes from my father, Bill Kahler, who is a talented musician that can play a wide range of instruments. I try to listen to music outside of the genre that I am working with to inspire new ideas. Some of my biggest influnces are: Radiohead, The Roots, Mike Shinoda, Timbaland, Rocco Delucca & The Burden, The Shins, Dr. Dre, Just Blaze, Kanye West, Mos Def, and BT.

I love what I do and it shows. I defiantly consider myself a unique producer. I'm very personal with the work that I do, and mold my sound to fit the artist I am working with. I'm probably the most humble person in the studio that you will meet with the balanced work ethic needed to get a session done and at its highest quality. Word spreads fast when a project falls into my hands. Sometimes its hard to believe how far I've progressed. I went from messing around with loops and putting random sounds together for fun to producing tracks for a Vanessa Williams movie and getting ASCAP royalties from a Ludacris song. Never give up on your dreams.
