Take The Stage x Jax Jones

by Johanna Roelich

With an array of hits on the charts as well as on heavy rotation on the radio and the clubbing circuit, Jax Jones is establishing himself as one of the hottest producers and artists of right now. 

Born in London as Timucin Fabian Kwong Wah Aluo into an multi-ethinic household in 1987, Jax Jones music taste goes well beyond the norm, dipping into many genres – which becomes apparent when you listen to one of his tracks, it soon become his signature sound. Since Jax emerged in 2016, he’s dependably delivered a tonne of huge hits that went beyond the expectations of being just a UK success, with his name soon becoming a staple on mainstream radio with “earworm” hits such as You Don’t Know Me, Instruction, Play and Breathe. You’ll be hard pressed to find someone else with that level of consistency in pop!

Chart success for Jax arrived in the early days of the streaming era, when the rise of anonymous, guest featuring pop-dance was turning producers such as Jonas Blue and Sigala into stars. His background and musicianship means he’s more comparable to Calvin Harris and David Guetta, and like them, he has the history. In the early 2000s he was part of Brixton’s grime and garage scene, scoring his first solo studio time at 17 thanks to local council funding and charities. To say he’s had a pretty epic and successful journey so far is an understatement. His debut album, Snacks, released last year, was the biggest-selling UK dance record of 2019 and included collaborations with Demi Lovato, Years & Years and other huge names, and now Jax Jones has the task of transforming the record into a live spectacle.

Jax is an inspirational and driven character, he put in the blood, sweat and tears and it paid off. With that, we caught up him for series three of our Take The Stage campaign, so we can pass on his story and really showcase his talent.
