Intel Presents “The Intern’d”–3 Episodes


Cool!!! Intel asked me to be in a web series called “The Intern’d” about “Three interns, trapped in a room, tasked with writing marketing copy for apps using a variety of Intel based Ultrabooks and mobile devices.”, I wanted to take the challenge even if I am not an actor, (and perhaps especially because I am not an actor), I actually use this stuff in my actual day-to-day work for films, games and music projects and I love showing the world what can be done with todays latest devices! I had a lot of fun working with those talented actors and crew and the wonderful people at Intel! Thanks everyone!

My best Jack Nicholson impression. My co-stars, kick ass! Chip and Katie you guys rock!

Luckily for me, my character was named “Justin” too. And luckily for all of you, there are #bunnies too! Poetic, and cool. The first three episodes are about “Starchart”, “ooVoo” and “Teamviewer” apps which work on Windows and Android devices, ultrabooks, etc.


I’m a techno geek that loves computers, technology and music. I use Core processors, SSD drives, desktops, ultrabooks, 2-in-1’s and tablets and other amazing technology (released and unreleased). I get to help create the sounds of the future, sound design used by thousands of film, game and music composers and musicians the world over, and thankfully, I make an influential impact on the world around me on daily basis.

I feel lucky that I get to be a part of a lot of exciting and different projects around the world and consult and work on the future of many technologies with many great people and shared dreams.

I hope you enjoy these episodes! We had a lot of fun making them!

Justin Lassen sings on EDM artist Arkasia’s new album “Electronic Symphony” out today on Beatport! #dubstep


My good friends DJ Shortee and DJ Faust, have a fantastic leading label called Heavy Artillery Recordings, and they have a lot of cool artists, tracks and content that is played globally by DJ’s all over the world in clubs, festivals and venues. I have a long friendship with both Faust & Shortee (Urban Assault), and I was honored to be able to sing on their artist Arkasia’s latest album “Electronic Symphony” which you can find on Beatport. I invited my friend Chadington Von Lichtenstein from The Pattern Interrupt to add the screams and extreme metal vocals. Together with my singing and his metal vocals we made a pretty cool listening experience. Super proud of the outcome! Thanks brothers! We hope the album does awesome!

Arkasia's rise to the upper echelons of the EDM world has been nothing short meteoric. One of the brightest shining lights to emerge from the electronic music scene in recent times, his music has earned him critical acclaim from all corners of the globe and a quickly growing die-hard fan base. Arkasia's music fronts a level of maturity and understanding all too rarely seen in the EDM world. A sublime sense of space, structure and flow gives his sound a refreshing point of difference. His monstrous compositions are moving, powerful and uplifting, enchanting and haunting, and touch the very depths of your soul. Arkasia's musical calling came at the tender age of five when he mastered the violin, and continued well into his teens, where he was composing mini-operas by age 15. His broad musical roots and experience playing in both orchestras and metal bands is evident throughout his compositions, however his creations reach far beyond the realms of Classical and Metal, IDM, Dubstep and Drum&Bass into uncharted territories! Coming off the heels of a feature song in the movie Elysium and the his recent smash EP "Orbit EP", Arkasia is back with "Electronic Symphony", a 12 track album which exemplifies his diverse grasp of powerful composition, rich textural depth and an unrivaled vision for new electronic music with no limits!

Arkasia, Justin Lassen, Chadington Review: 05.05.14

“…On the other end of the spectrum, ‘Digital Spirit’ makes use of Arkasia’s time as part of a metal band. Featured vocalists Justin Lassen & Chadington Von Lichtenstein lend a certain degree of anger and genuineness to the production. Highly modulated, carefully crafted guitar riffs are laid over the dark bassline and thundering drums as the screaming begins. Certainly, the combination of Lassen and Von Lichtenstein’s voices in the track create an interesting dynamic when juxtaposed with the rest of the album…”

Chart Update from Arkasia:

“So .... O__________O #ElectronicSymphony is now #14 in the general release chart on Beatport, #2 in Dubstep, #5 in Dnb, Glitch hop, and electronica 0_____0 Amongst Skrillex, Never Say Die Records and many other BIG names 0_______0 In one day !!!! 0_________________0 You guys are the best i could ever dream “
