Dustin Holtsberry

Justin James // Justin hails from Windsor, Ontario the same city as his label boss and techno icon Richie Hawtin. With Richie, Dubfire and many others as close, guiding influences,
James has used this ammunition to fire his way to international recognition.

Being just across the river from the revered school of Detroit producers, has not left James unmoved. The powerful emotions deep within the seminal tracks that emanate from across the border resound heavily in him. Being touched by this rich
history has deeply influence James' music production, sharing his own vision of techno with other like-minded souls. A slew of creativity is already available, through releases quickly signed to powerhouse international labels such as Richie Hawtin's
'Minus' and Dubfire's 'Sci+Tec.' James has taken his vision to the next level by curating his own imprint "refused." - a record label, which will showcase forward thinking techno from himself, established artists and up-and-coming talent from around the globe. Justin James is all about his deep love of the diverse elements of techno. His juxtaposition of raw techno with
more organic elements, gives him boundless energy in the studio and behind the decks, which keeps the dance-floor

Chris Rusu // From a small town Madison, WI. Chris Rusu started producing electronic music at the early age of 13. Listening closely to his influences in the Techno and Minimal scene Chris began to grow his unique sound and style of producing music. After having several chart hitting songs and support from the likes of Dubfire, Richie Hawtin and many more, Chris begins to dig deeper in his sounds turning his productions to melodic deep techno and electronic music. Exploring the infinite ways of bringing analog and digital together to create something new.


Dustin Holtsberry // Just 24 years old, Dustin Holtsberry is hard at work shaping and defining the signature sound emerging from the high desert Borderlands of the American Southwest. Born and raised in Las Cruces, New Mexico, Holtsberry began DJing at 19. For the next three years he honed his craft at the behind the decks, later discovering a need to produce.
Holtsberry’s rough, groovy, rolling minimal/techno holds within a dark, danceable, psychedelic bent. His tracks are full of ecstatic, soaring peaks and plunging lows, held together by round, punchy snares.
A relative newcomer, Holtsberry is steadily staking his territory in the Borderlands and beyond. In September 2016, he was invited to play the Beatport stage at the El Paso’s Sun City Music Festival, kicking off the festival’s second day and warming up crowds for a day of techno heavy-hitters including Anna, Josh Wink, Loco Dice, Matador and Pleasurekraft.
Holtsberry has shared stages with the likes of Pan Pot, Justin James, Spartaque, Heartthrob, Shaded, Christian Barbuto, Sian, Arjun Vagale, Richie Santana, Durtysoxxx, Skober, Matt Sassari, D-Unity, Dhyan Droik, Juheun and Agent Orange, and is a regular collaborator with another of the Borderlands’ best-kept secret weapons, El Paso’s Raul Facio. �Just one year into his production game, Holtsberry has landed releases on Refused. Deeperfect Records, Funk’n Deep Records and IAMT, with much more to come.
