Across Spotify, he racks up over one million listeners per month, and across all platforms has upwards of 100 million streams across his discography. While his top 3 songs have over 50 million alone. And in the last 12 months he’s produced for rising pop starlet Amber-Simone and hyped funk band Franc Moody. All this for a songwriter and producer who is yet to drop a debut album.
It would be an understatement to say Hertz had a musical upbringing. His father is the legendary DJ Pete Tong, and he was raised on a strict diet of hip-hop, jazz, and soul, but also drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep and garage. By the age of 15, he was DJing and making music. “Hearing Burial was a real turning point for me early on,” explains Hertz. “I wanted more from my production style after that. I didn’t want to sound like him, but I wanted to get that emotion into my own music. It opened so many doors in my brain.”
Debut Album 'Current Blues' forthcoming July 2020.
