Born and raised in rural Vermont, Morgan Page started making electronic music when he was just 14 years old. Since his humble beginnings, the “In the Air” producer has come a long way. Releasing 5 full albums, with a 6th due out in 2016, and 9 singles including current chart-climbing hit “Your Love,” Page has set himself up with a permanent spot in the dance community as a strong progressive house and trance artist.
Rewind back to 2008 when Morgan Page released his first single, “The Longest Road.” It’s familiar to most fans as the grammy nominated Deadmau5 remix, but the original track holds an old-western charm that remixes have yet to duplicate. From the video set in the deep desert, to Lissie’s country-esque vocals and the guitar riffs that bear uncanny resemblance to banjos, the entire song presents a story-like, calming melody that serves as the perfect song to play as you unwind from a good weekend.
With stops in Seattle, Vancouver, San Jose, and San Francisco among many more cities on the west coast still remaining, Morgan Page has returned to the release circuit towards the end of his Morgan Page Presents 3D Tour. Following a flash of nostalgia on his last release and with Chicago’s Michael S on vocal duties, the two-time Grammy nominated producer delivers another vocal anthem which combines stunning songwriting and the American’s production prowess.
Since his Grammy nominations in 2009 and 2011, Morgan Page has been working relentlessly as a DJ, producer, and showman. In the midst of his extensive and widely successful Morgan Page Presents 3D Tour that features an interactive 3D experience originally designed for Michael Jackson’s ‘This Is It’ tour, the “Fight For You” and “The Longest Road” producer still manages to find time to preview some upcoming tracks. Coming soon from Nettwork, Morgan Page teased “Against the World” featuring stunning vocal work from Michael S. Show attendees will recognize this new electro house hit as he has played this memorable tune throughout several of his MPP3D Tour sets.
As early as five years ago the concept of production defining dance music was often times left in the hands of the clubs where the DJs were performing. The idea of a traveling tour, complete with its own intricately developed production could in part be attributed to Daft Punk’s pyramid in 2007 and then later redefined by deadmau5′s cube in 2011. Today, production has almost superseded the music as festivals and artists alike set their sights on the visual aspect of the dance music experience. Avicii has his head, Skrillex has his mothership. Creating the full package of aural engagement and visual sensory overload has recently become a critical part of the EDM package. Pushing the boundaries of the visual experience, Morgan Page’s recent North American tour re-imagines the status quo of LED screens and CO2 blasts, amplifying the standard with an impressive 3-dimensional element that fore-sakes the “3d gimmick” and does the medium actual justice.
Morgan Page is on tour and bringing along a special treat. The producer is showcasing 3D Live Entertainment technology throughout the nation to create a deeper, more immersive experience for attendees that will feature canyons, spaceships, and other massive flyover landscapes. It’s guaranteed you’ll forget you’re standing in a boring old venue when the music stops.

Ready to embark upon his fall tour consisting of over 50 North American cities, Morgan Page is looking to bring something spectacular to the live music arena. Introducing a new 3D interactive experience that was originally created for Michael Jackson’s ‘This Is It’ tour, Page will immerse crowds in an array of light and color to reach far beyond the human senses. Supported by artists such as Audien and Project 46, the “Your Love” producer will span the continent from Miami to Toronto and everywhere in between — tour dates and locations below the break.
Maintaining relevancy through giveaways of his weekly In The Air radio show, Morgan Page has steadily kept his production chops in order with occasional remixes and collaborations. Hitting the release circuit stronger than ever this week, Page resurrects The Outfield’s 1986 hit, “Your Love,” and re-directs it towards the dance floor. Contructing contagious synths and crisp percussion around the original vocal, Morgan’s version of “Your Love” evokes nostalgia and will grasp that emotion from fans when delivered live.
If the year 1986 brings back warm fuzzies for you, chances are The Outfield’s “Your Love” is right up there in the memory bank. If you grew up in the 90s and thus are drawing a blank, Morgan Page is helping you out. Dusting the already catchy tune off, Page is giving the chart-topper a 2013 update. Keeping the iconic vocals but building up a light progressive beat underneath, the tune keeps the 80s structure but inserts a club-ready synth. Joining the ranks of remixes from the likes of Less Than Jake, Katy Perry and Wyclef Jean, the track will be released July 16th.
