Jauz’s ascent to EDM stardom came quickly, and he’s been on a nonstop tear ever since, hitting the festival circuit hard in both 2015 and 2016, and touring in the meantime. 2017 looks to be no different, with festival dates popping up everywhere and a brand new tour going on right now. Jauz’s Off The Deep End Tour is coming to Royal Oak Music Theater in Detroit this Thursday, February 16, and we have everything you need to know about the young phenom below.

 

3 Essential Tracks

Jauz – Feel The Volume

You can’t have a list of essential Jauz tracks without include the one that launched him into the spotlight, and still to this day one of his greatest tracks. “Feel The Volume” was unlike anything else when it was first released, and while Jauz and many others have made similarly styled tracks since then, nothing is quite like the original.

Daniel Bedingfield – Gotta Get Thru This (Jauz Retrofuture Remix)

Jauz has a deep remix catalog, just like most other established electronic artists. But how many of them take a British song about heartbreak from the early 2000’s and make it into something that kids who were barely out of diapers at the time can get down to at festivals now? If the word “remix” wasn’t in the song title, most of his listeners would assume it was an original song, and that’s what makes this remix so impressive.

Jauz x Netsky – Higher

Jauz has collaborated with everyone from Tiesto to Borgore, and while it’s interesting to see different styles come together , there’s something special when two artists with a similar vision create music together. Jauz and Netsky was a collaboration meant to be, and “Higher” proves it. It’s pure future-bass perfection.

 

1 Essential Set/Mix

Jauz was on an absolute tear in the summer of 2016, playing nearly every festival, and throwing down incredible sets wherever he went. His EDC New York set stands out, being one of the first of his festival season, and one of the most inspired and exciting.

 

3 Other Artists to Check Out

K?d

K?d is currently experiencing a well-deserved meteoric rise, landing several opening slots for The Chainsmokers on their upcoming tour, and opening for Jauz in Detroit on Thursday. The young producer has an incredible sound uniquely his own, a talent that boosted Jauz to the top of the electronic world, and will hopefully do the same for K?d.

San Holo

San Holo accompanied Jauz on several of his Friendzy Tour dates in 2016, and collaborated on “OK!” that same year. The two artists implement similar methods for different results, San Holo being the bright cheery yin to Jauz’s dark heavy yang.

Zeds Dead

Zeds Dead’s sound paved the way for a lot of artists over the past 5 years, Jauz most certainly included. While Jauz has a sound all his own, there is definitely influence from this legendary duo, and he wouldn’t be where his is today without their mark on the electronic world.

 

Jauz is coming to Royal Oak Music Theater in Detroit on Thursday February 16. Tickets are available here.
