Astrojaxx: The 16-year-old EDM Prodigy We’re Listening To. A 16-year-old artist is making waves all over the world, including South Africa, with his 2019 release Universe… The classically trained pianist turned producer is shaking the EDM world.
Few blossoming producers in the dance music sphere can confidently claim as many accolades as 16-year-old composer and producer, Astrojaxx.
The ‘Universe’ song will please EDM fans as it reveals itself with an impressive acoustic headline, Mechi’s alluring lyrics together with a grand piano melody. The single continues with its Latin influence through a movement of a guitar’s strings while Astrojaxx plays on the keys. This track celebrates summer with English and Spanish vocals that are infused with a tropical reggaeton theme.
The track snagged a #9 spot under JOOX South Africa’s ‘What’s New’ playlist alongside global sensations Sam Smith, Beyonce, and NAS. The record is a smooth summer gem that is bound to draw listeners in with its unparalleled vocals and production. Astrojaxx also recruited his longtime mentor and dance music’s most sought-after engineer, Grammy Nominated Luca Pretolesi, who is known for his work with Major Lazer, Diplo, and DVBBS, to master the track.
