Kid Gus is a Mexican DJ who, at his young age, already has a long history. In addition to being a DJ, he has started his career as a producer and singer. His music has recently gone viral on TikTok.
The 17-year-old has had the opportunity to perform on stage in front of 40 thousand spectators, sharing the stage with the DJ, Steve Aoki. He also participated in an event with Dash Berlin and Deoro, in Querétaro, Mexico.
His taste for being a DJ was born at the age of 8 when he saw a video of an electronic music festival where Steve Aoki mixed. “That’s when I said I want to be a DJ,” says the young man.
“What I saw on that occasion was how electronic music creates a different environment. It makes you feel another vibe, another emotion different from other musical genres. Because it is a totally different genre with a very strong energy. That was what attracted me, ”he reveals.
“It wasn’t easy being a DJ, because I was very young,” says Kid Gus.
But for the DJ it was not easy to start his musical path, since due to his young age he was not accepted in music academies. “At that time I was 8 years old and the courses were from 15 years old. But a teacher trusted me, so I took classes with him. Little by little the other academies accepted me and I finished my studies as a professional DJ, ”he says.
Upon finishing these studies, he began at children’s parties, mixing for the children of some Mexican artists. And it was until the age of 15 that a promoter realized his talent and invited him to participate in a festival, sharing the stage with Steve Aoki.
“That was shocking because he is someone you have admired since childhood and you say: ‘I have to give one of the best sets of my life,'” reveals the Mexican DJ.
For him it was a dream come true, due to the great admiration he had for him. “Steve Aoki is someone I have looked up to since I was little. And being able to share the stage with him and give me advice is something incredible. It leaves you marked for your whole life ”.
He plans to release his first record material in mid-2021
Experiences like these have helped Kid Gus continue to evolve. He has been a music producer for more than three years and has released 6 singles in the electronic and urban genre. Several of these songs have gone viral on social media. “TikTok is where my songs have gone viral. They have used them for dances for exercise routines, and it is something that I never imagined, it is incredible! “
These singles, like his new material, will unite them in an album that will come out in mid-2021. This will be of the urban genre and will focus on positive messages such as equality.
