“From bedroom producer to concert headliner”
Tickets are on sale now for New York based indie-electronic producer & Skrillex-signed artist JAI WOLF’s six date Australia & New Zealand tour.
The Somewhere In A Forest Tour will be the first time time Jai Wolf has graced Australian shores since he took out #93 in the 2015 triple j Hottest 100 with his hit ‘Indian Summer’ – and his first visit to New Zealand.
Jai Wolf’s live show has been described as an ascending roller coaster of everything from future bass, trap, deep house and mash ups. Since signing to Skrillex‘s label, OWSLA, Wolf has gone on to perform at Coachella and just recently wrapped up a huge run of sold out US dates.
Breaking out in 2014 with a string of remixes that landed at #1 on Hype Machine, he caught the attention of Skrillex after sending him his mix of “Ease My Mind”, and was soon after signed to his label OWSLA.
With his rework of ODESZA’s ‘Say My Name’, he continued to gather momentum in 2015, performing at Coachella, and in the summer, released his debut single ‘Indian Summer’ through ODESZA’s label Foreign Family Collective. The single reached #1 on the US Spotify Viral chart, has had almost nine million spins on Soundcloud and gained huge global recognition.
“The success of Indian Summer has been so incredibly humbling,” says Jai. “It’s the first time I’ve created a track where I was completely true to myself. It took me a while, but I finally feel comfortable making the music that I’ve always wanted to make.”
Following on from the mammoth response to ‘Indian Summer’, Jai Wolf released his second single ‘Drive’ last month, featuring vocals by Kamtin Mohager of The Chain Gang of 1974. It’s already clocked up over 700k plays on Soundcloud and been heaped with praise from the biggest voices in electronic music including THUMP, Fader & Dancing Astronaut.
Fans are urged to snap tickets up fast for this limited run of AU/NZ club shows. With his current trajectory firmly in-tact, it’ll be a much bigger venue and a much bigger ticket price next time he visits.
