Just A Gent appears as your average 17-year-old Aussie, studying in Year 11 and finding casual employment at a local toy store. Yet over the past seven months the young producer, charmingly dubbed Just A Gent, has kept his Soundcloud profile steadily populated with an impressive catalogue of original works and remixes.
Charting at #1 on music blog aggregator Hype Machine, his remix of American Authors’ “Best Day of My Life” garnered over half a million plays in 30 days prior to being picked up by Island Def Jam. His music has already received support by the largest names in electronic dance music including Skrillex, Diplo, Dillon Francis, What So Not and more, whilst having received airplay on BBC’s 1Xtra, Triple J and Pete Tong’s Evolution Radio.
2014 is only destined to get bigger for Just A Gent recently announcing his début Australia and New Zealand tour set to take place during his school holidays, along with signing to WME for North America.
