Known for his mesmerizing live performances and whimsical synergy with fans, Geoff “Stylust Beats” Reich has been creating his own counterculture since he was a teenager. A skate punk and hip-hop devotee, this groundbreaking DJ’s talent for fusing rap hooks and dubstep bass with multiple music genres has earned him the rep as a creative renegade carving his own path. With a style that captivates lovers of all music, the Canadian-bred, San Francisco DJ has emerged as a frontrunner in the new wave of industry heavyweights. In a interview for MusicYouNeed.net, this stereophonic chameleon explains the method to his madness, “My goal is to make timeless bass music: I try to make every track an epic melodic adventure through many different genres.”

Blending classic turntablism with cutting edge tech prowess, Geoff has been touring as DJ Stylust Beats since 2008. Stretching all over the United States, Canada and Costa Rica, he has headlined major festivals, including Shambala, Envision and Burning Man, to name a few.

After seeing much success from his award-nominated Soundbwoy EP and his 2013 debut album R.Y.F.S.O, released on the formidable bass label Play Me Records, Stylust Beats is back. This time weaving genres of trap, hip-hop, larger-than-life dubstep and sonic chill with stupefying synth work, in his Summer 2015 HEATROCKS album, featuring collaborations with Truth, TA$O, I.Y.F.F.E, Neon Steve and many more!
