Destined for the stars, 16-year-old Aussie dj/producer Throttle has done it once again! His remix of Flo Rida’s Whistle (hear it here) has been our most downloaded track for the last couple weeks and this up and comer deserves all the attention he can get – that’s what we’re here for :). For those that don’t know, Throttle started djing at 13 and it was soon after this that he discovered Madeon and was inspired by the fact that he too was a fast growing producer at the ripe young age of 16. Throttle then began using ableton just over a year ago and has been making a strong name for himself ever since.
Listen, and keep reading :)
French Kiss - Throttle
I had to ask… what’s behind the name Throttle anyway? He answered himself by saying,
There’s really no reason behind the name Throttle, except that I was on a family holiday in Italy and we were all trying to come up with a name and I have a feeling i saw it written somewhere and felt that it would be cool – plus I wanted something with two syllables so that if I ever became famous it would be a good name to chant – don’t ask me why! haha.”
Throttle prides himself in the fact that he tries to please people with different types of music taste by appealing to dubstep heads, electro lovers, disco lovers and more.
I don’t really have a signature genre at all though, for example I’m currently making a dubstep song, a progressive song, a funky song and an electro song! I just produce what i feel like at the time! My influences are mainly anyone that has tried something new. Im influenced by all artists ranging from madeon to skrillex to Breakbot to Avicii to Louis la Roche – I love all music!!
Great to hear personally from such an aspiring and young artist. Make sure to keep your ears (and eyes – like I always say) open for Throttle’s upcoming releases by following via the links below!
