Morgan Page Celebrates His New Album at B.E.D. on February 23

​In the dance music world, Deadmau5 has a Midas touch that works even indirectly. Two years ago, his remix of the L.A. producer Morgan Page's track "The Longest Road" scored a Grammy nomination, and of course that pointed the spotlight back to the track's creator. Page was long ready to bask in it.

The 28-year-old got his start early as a teenager in his hometown of Burlington, Vermont, where, while still in high school, he scored a weekly slot DJing on the college station WRUV. Showing a precocious ear for crowd-friendly house beats, by 1999 he was signed to the now-defunct Fiji Records. By his early 20s, he was dropping singles on power-house labels like Bedrock and SAW. His debut artist album, Elevate (from which "The Longest Road" came) appeared in 2008 on his current label, Nettwerk.

His meteoric rise came thanks to a serious knack for creating big-room fare with pop crossover potential. The tracks on "Elevate" were vocal heavy, completely danceable at peak hours but never getting too hard. It's an aesthetic that has helped Page score big-deal remixing gigs -- he's reworked the likes of Madonna and Yoko Ono, and more recently, indie titans like La Roux and the Temper Trap. 

His appearance on February 23 at B.E.D. celebrates the release of his sophomore full-length effort for Nettwerk, Believe. Its lead single, "Fight For You," is currently tearing up global dance charts. Hit the jump to check out the video for the song, and get full details about the party. 


Morgan Page. 10 p.m. Tuesday, February 23. B.E.D., 929 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Tickets cost $20; age 21 and up; 305-532-9070; bedmiami.com
