In DJ mode, Firecat 451 brings sick dubstep with precision and power. Also in the line-up are impressive blends of jazzy and jackin’ house and electro music with tasteful notes of international flavor. Dance floors will rattle and clubbers will be lushly rewarded with perfectly chosen grooves. Firecat 451 also DJ’s Drum & Bass, in this mode, breakers, b-boys, and those who represent can’t help but to come front and center and show respect for the diligence and wicked track selection.
Add a microphone, wireless or otherwise and the party is off the chain. The vocals here are dynamic. Intricate swings between American street poetry and singing chorus’ reminiscent of Seal and Bob Marley.

Logan Walden was born in Northern Kentucky in 1986 and raised in rural southern Ohio. His father, Christopher B. Walden, paints wildlife for a living and his mother, Joan Angst, exposed her sons to as many creative outlets as possible during their youth. Art, music, dance, travel, improv comedy, and many hours spent outside was routine for Logan and his brothers. Logan’s Father helped pave the path for his artistic career.
Destined for a creative field, Logan studied film at Full Sail University and worked in the film industry for 7 years. He’s worked on major motion pictures like Transformers 3, reality shows like The Bachelor and music videos for artists such as Tiesto and The Black Keys.
2010 proved to be a year of change for Logan as he explored the world of Music and Art Festivals; such as Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Boogaloo, Burning Man and others. Exposure to the new level of art by the performing visual artists inspired him to transition from Production Design in film to learning graphic design and painting at concerts as a visual artist. In 2012 Logan made the leap from Los Angeles back to his hometown in Ohio to study under his father using acrylics. Landing a graphic design job came quicker than expected and Walden began his new career as an in-house designer for Platinum Marketing Group in Cincinnati. Logan grew to be a professional designer over the the next 3 years. Designing by day and painting by night, Logan broke into the Cincinnati live art scene in 2013 when Essential Productions accepted his request to paint at a local concert. Since then Logan has been involved as a live painter, Gallery Coordinator, Art Director, Installation builder and DJ in various festivals and concerts throughout the Midwest and West Coast.
Logan’s obsession with techno and house music landed him the roll as Art Director for a Cincinnati event group named Freshlist, which is now on the top of Cincinnati’s list for the EDM and Art scene. In 2016 Logan set out on my own as a freelance Draphic Designer, Art Director and Visual Artist. Since Logan launched his own art and design business he has painted live at major festivals around the country; such as Burning Man, Electric Forest, Desert Hearts, Lucidity Festival, Reggae on the River, Resonance and many more.
Logan still resides in his home town where he continues his art and design career. He also works sales for his father’s wildlife art business. Together, Logan and his father work to build their art business’s and paint as master and student.
