As a musician, producer, and entrepreneur, Aric Christopher, aka MIRAMAR, has accomplished many feats in his life. The multifaceted DJ and producer is a self-professed “modern-day Renaissance man” who is adding more fuel to his fire by honing his musical skills and setting a new standard of perfection.
MIRAMAR is best known for his innovative MIRAMAR sound, a new, refreshing sound that has been long-awaited by fans of disco house and nu-disco. It is an innovative take on disco house and nu-disco that reflects today’s society by combining old-school beats with modern sounds for an infectious groove. MIRAMAR’s sound has gone viral in the disco house and nu-disco space, attracting thousands of listeners on various social media and digital streaming platforms. On Spotify alone, MIRAMAR attracts 10K monthly listeners and has garnered over 570K cumulative streams. The producer is equally popular on social media platforms like Instagram, where he boasts thousands of loyal fans and followers.
Over the past few years, MIRAMAR has made huge strides as a music producer and in his music career. These include playing the MIRAMAR project at Outside Lands Musical Festival, a 3-day festival celebrating music, food, wine, beer, art, cannabis, and everything the Bay Area is renowned for. Miramar has also toured internationally, DJing in France, Spain, Italy, and across most major US cities with artists such as Rufus Du Sol, Thomas Jack, Viceroy, Travis Wild, Poolside, and Burning Man.
As his brand grows, MIRAMAR hopes to further contribute further to the musical revolution in the coming years. As an artist, MIRAMAR hopes his music will be understood, shared, and appreciated internationally, contributing to the new generation of music fans are gravitating toward. MIRAMAR also hopes to carve out a new sub-genre of sound that inspires others to create similar music and benefit each other in growing the house and nu-disco music genres. As he grows, MIRAMAR also wants to uplift other artists and encourage them to follow their passion.
In his time in the industry, MIRAMAR has learned several lessons other artists trying to succeed in this fast-paced space can leverage. The first is that commitment is indispensable in the journey toward success. “Whether it be with work projects, relationships, or personal development, always be sure to commit a little energy to each every day. Always continue to chip away, even in small amounts,” MIRAMAR shares. “Before you know it, your daily progress will, over time, grow into your vision, and you will meet your goals.”
The second lesson is the value of patience. Every artist must cultivate patience and perseverance in an era of instant gratification and overnight success because not everyone will go viral instantly. MIRAMAR has been doing this for a while and says the best is yet to come. In the meantime, he’s honing his skills and working hard to create a unique sound that organically attracts listeners looking for something new. MIRAMAR reiterates the need for uniqueness and originality in the music industry, mainly because fans have more options now than ever before.
Away from music, MIRAMAR hopes to venture into other industries as well and find even more success. The way he sees it, there’s nothing he can’t do if he sets his mind to it.
