To mark Just A Gent's imminent 18th Birthday, we're extremely excited to announce the "Just Turned 18" national club tour, hitting the road in Canberra on April 24 and playing weekend shows solidly until May 30 in Christchurch, NZ.
At the ripe age of 17, Just a Gent had a couple national tours under his belt, an original track handpicked by Skrillex in his ‘Selects’ compilation and a #1 on Hype Machine. He has been marked Australia’s next breakthrough producer and has the millions of soundcloud plays to his name growing by the minute.
Just A Gent is of course the moniker of Newcastle’s Jacob Grant. His music has been supported by locals and industry heavyweights alike, with airplay and mixes on Triple J, spins on BBC1Xtra and support from the likes of Diplo, What So Not and Dillon Francis. The chivalrous fellow has put his mark on official remixes of Alison Wonderland, Zhu, The Aston Shuffle, Tears For Fears and Nick Jonas, cementing himself as the name to cross the boundaries between the best that pop and experimental music have to offer.
On top of his own sold out national series, Just A Gent last year hopped across the pond with explosive sets in New Zealand before drenching the US is his future beats on the ‘Stories To Tell’ tour. This impressive touring resume, as well as a massive support slot for other wunderkinds, The Aston Shuffle put the upcoming shows at the top of the not-to-be-missed pile.
