About

Spinning since 2009, Ian:DJ is undergoing a 2013 makeover as he presents his new alias "Ira Haze". The name surfaced in a couple of exclusive gigs over the past two years but now it's official. Ira Haze will continue the success Ian: DJ had in the past- making a name for himself within Colorado's flourishing dance music community. Playing out regularly in the clubs from Vail to Denver and Boulder to his hometown of Manitou Springs, Ira Haze sets pack a unique and diverse collection of sounds that can also be accessed in cyberspace on his "Reservation in Space" iTunes podcast and on http://mixcloud.com/ira_haze

Growing up in a musical family, he recalls watching older family members play various instruments of the orchestra- cello, violin, bassoon, keys and more. He also has fond memories of listening to classic 80s vinyl such as MJ's Thriller, creating dance routines with friends and family. At the age of 8, he began taking piano lessons accompanied by voice training and choir performance. He credits his sense of rhythm, musical ear and ability read music to these musical experiences. Later on, he taught himself guitar and after traveling in Europe, began to explore the world of electronic dance music. Infatuated with turn of the century trance, the evolution of a DJ began.

These days, Ira Haze hopes to bring his unique house style and personality to the forefront of the world's top dance music venues and parties. In the meantime, he passionately enjoys spinning dance tracks for those who will listen in his native Colorado while filling up free time with outdoor recreation and hanging out with friends and family.
