California-based DJ and entrepreneur Aric Christopher, who produces smooth dance music as MIRAMAR, has reimagined nu-disco in a twist fans have been waiting for.
MIRAMAR upbringing is rooted in surf, skate and snow culture in various coastal California communities. While there are many layers to his entrepreneurial spirit, electronic music production has always remained a creative constant. His brand evokes his itinerant, hedonistic nature and calls to the self-indulgent pleasures of travel and adventure.
That’s how he got his stage name, which is a direct translation of “to observe the ocean.” MIRAMAR spends much of his time surfing in remote locations and drawing musical inspiration from these experiences.
MIRAMAR’s unique sound lies at the intersection of nu-disco and melodic house, but it’s always layered with deep disco undertones, organic percussion and bubbly basslines that maintain a constant energy. His career highlights include a performance at Outside Lands, Burning Man, and supporting RÜFÜS DU SOL, Thomas Jack, Viceroy and more.
