Standing tall as a mainstay in Australian electronic music, 20-year-old producer Just A Gent is well on his way to breaking the global dance scene. And his latest offering ‘Hold’ featuring Thief demonstrates his sonic trademark is continuing to evolve.
“It was a really cool experience working with Thief. I got to go to his home studio and we knocked out the original idea forever ago, and it was cool to go back in on that track and polish it up to be one of my favorite tracks I have ever finished.”
To date, the rising talent has clocked up over 10 million streams on Spotify alone with his debut EP ‘Stories To Tell’. With support from Triple J and remixes of Alison Wonderland, Peking Duk, and ZHU under his belt, the young producer has caught the attention of industry forerunner Skrillex. Now, joining the legendary San Holo on his upcoming tour across Australia, Canada, and the USA, Just A Gent is keeping the momentum up and 2017 is shaping up to be a milestone year.
Blending rich piano chords, energetic drum patterns, and detuned synth lines, ‘Hold’ delivers an all-encompassing experience. Thief’s vocal performance sits high in the mix, underpinned by string arrangements – a Just A Gent hallmark.
