Child stars have always been a fascination in the entertainment industry. From musical greats such as Michael Jackson, rapper Lil Bow Wow (aka Shad Moss), Justin Bieber, Selena Gomes and French pop sensation JoJo; the paparazzi lens has been focused on them since they were young kids. Today’s interviewee is an up-and-coming prospect, although he hasn’t yet reached the heights of the aforementioned contemporaries, he is our youngest feature!
DJ @XL (pronounced Axel) hails from Montauban (near Toulouse) in France and is 12-years old! For those of us old enough to relate, DJ @XL is the Doogie Howser M.D. of techno music (okay, we promise to stop with the child prodigy referrals 🙂 ) . DJ @XL is one very dedicated young man, who was able to fit us in (courtesy of his lovely parents) for a chat! This was all between DJ-ing classes, school and the various extramural activities most children usually get up to. Here’s a glimpse into DJ @XL’s world!

What would you get if you took the name Baxter, then add Sweden and South Africa into the mix? That answer could likely come from a football fan, who would automatically associate all of the above with the coach of the South African National team in Stuart Baxter. This is due to the Englishman having had a coaching stint in Sweden with Orebro SK, before heading down to South Africa for a number of coaching spells in the region. Strangely enough, our guest this week is a Swedish producer and beat maker named Baxter Beats, cementing another South African-Scandinavia media collaboration for us (through the “English” language as a medium). The irony doesn’t end there… Baxter Beats is from Orebro – the town Orebro SK – which is where Stuart Baxter also coached!
With all the crazy associations and synchronicities out the way, we just get into the “mix” by having Baxter Beats (also known as Dave Baxter) in for a Q–and–A session. Baxter Beats has done some collaborative work with 18 Horses on their latest project. This is what prompted us to learn more about his impressive sound. We asked him more about his origins in the music game, his future plans and other things.
