MAKJ, the United States-based DJ and producer announced the release of a brand-new single titled, “Green Light” off Armada Music, which is currently available to stream/download here.  

Having been an independent music creator since the start of his career, “Green Light” marks his first single after signing a record deal with the label Armada.  With colorful vocals, thick bass tones, and gritty drops that bolster the record’s bad-boy attitude, ‘Green Light’ pushes all systems to go for a new round of dance floor domination.

“Since I started my musical journey almost ten years ago, I’ve never signed to a label. But I can tell you that Armada will be the best home for all the new MAKJ music that’s still to come. I’m glad to be a part of the family and I’m looking forward to coming into 2021 with the best music I’ve ever made!”


In response to the debut single, the artist added, 

“I’ve had a past life racing cars, and this song is the theme song to my racing heritage. There’s that first listen when it sounds like a club song, but after the second listen, you want to drive in your car at 2 a.m. hitting all green lights. The track is being used by IndyCar in their ‘A Different Breed’ campaign and is an homage to my racing career. The energy and adrenaline I felt when racing in my early teens needed to be made into a record, and that’s how ‘Green Light’ was born.”

Mackenzie Johnson, more commonly known by his artistic name, MAKJ grew up on California’s Central Coast before moving to China as a teenager to race professionally for eighteen months.  The artist has performed at some of the largest and most prestigious music events in the world including Coachella, Creamfields, EDC Las Vegas, Electric Zoo, Parookaville, Tomorrowland, and Ultra Music Festival.  For additional information regarding the artist, please follow him on all social media platforms.
