Few artists deserve the title of “prodigy” more than 21-year-old Just A Gent.
After teaching himself to produce when he was still in primary school, in 2014 – at age 16 – Just A Gent scored a set at national festival Listen Out after winning a triple j Unearthed competition. That kicked off a star-making two years that saw him remix artists like Alison Wonderland, Peking Duk and ZHU, clock up millions of SoundCloud plays on his 2015 single Limelight, get noticed by Skrillex and sell out shows around the country – all before he could legally step foot in a club.
Hi debut EP Stories to Tellwas streamed over 18 million times and produced, mixed and mastered all by the gent from his bedroom in Maitland, NSW. Two singles from Stories To Tell – the supersized Heavy As A Heartbreakfeaturing LANKS and fan favourite Loaded- have done big things, the former hitting the #1 spot on blog aggregator Hype Machine, spending five months on high rotation on triple j and ticking over 6 million plays collectively. His follow up acclaimed single ‘Rolling Dice’ has been streamed over 7 million times and counting, with an array of media online praising the young producers prowess on his first EP. His jaw dropping triple j Like A Versiontook on Kid Cudi’s ‘Day N Nite’bringing in over1.2 million view sand was an overwhelming listener favourite from 2016.
