Age is irrelevant in the mind of Aiden Jude, the 10-year old electro house producer who’s opening for Mobb Deep in Hollywood and already has gigs lined up at Lure and LAVO NY. Born and raised in New York City, Jude credits his father and his uncle DJ Coleman for introducing him to the genre he now calls home. “My dad is a musician and an endless ball of energy,” the young producer reflects candidly, noting that in addition to his family his greatest idols are Sebastian Ingrosso, Tiësto, Avicii and Hardwell. Focusing his attention on electro house, he acknowledges that he is only at the start of his journey, dabbling in Logic and Ableton to hone his craft. At the forefront of the next wave of electronic producers who have been inspired by the EDM boom, Aiden Jude is paving the way for more producers like him, but he’s still just a kid enthralled to be experiencing everything he has thus far;
I’m a regular kid. I play sports. I like computer games. I like everything kids like. Most of all, I like life. I sincerely enjoy living. I got to see and experience a lot from very early on with traveling around the world and very active family. I just love life and that I would say is my inspiration.
Like Hardwell and A-Trak before him, Aiden Jude may be young, but for what he lacks in years he more than makes up for in passion. His lead single “Tonight” marks his first official release into the festival house circuit, pairing a big room top line with a thunderous break. An inspiration to aspiring producers still in grade school, Jude’s debut is now available on Beatport.
