At first I thought this was a belated April Fools’ joke but it turned out to be legit. There’s a 10-year-old DJ cooking up club bangers in New York City and his name is Aiden Jude. The tween has just released his debut single and it’s a surprisingly accomplished floorfiller called “Tonight”.
The dance anthem probably would have sounded better as an instrumental. “There’s a power in you I can not explain, taste it in our kiss,” sings the unknown diva over Aiden’s bouncy house beats before the track goes mental with a huge drop straight out of Martin Garrix‘s handbook. (“Tonight” does sound a lot like “Animals”). It kind of goes without saying that this is pretty incredible for a little kid. See the DJ’s first video (complete with cool skateboarding scenes) after the jump.
Is Aiden too young to be a DJ or do his beats do the talking? Have your say in the comments below.
