What's going on dance music fans! We always love bringing you the best up and coming artists every single day here at EDMsauce.com! Today, we are featuring yet another incredible talent in our Artist of the Week Series; Please help us welcome CTZNJ!
CTZNJ is an up and comer with a ton of talent combining a super groovy pop style with future bass sounds, original riffs, and a real taste making quality that we fail to find in new music from new artists. We would love to feature his newest track below, which is a remix of LANY's Malibu Nights that brings the lyrics to life with CTZNJ's heavy bass riffs, deeply sidechained kicks, and of course the quality you'd come to expect from such a young and professional talent!
We were lucky enough to sit down with this awesome, young, talented artist to get a bit of insight into his creative process. His response was very interesting as he alluded to the fact that we are all small pieces to the music world and the sounds that we hear simply just bring us all together as one:
“the vision for my music from the beginning has been to discover and craft the CTZNSND (Citizen Sound). I wanted to be this figure CTZNJ with the idea that if your name is Kris, you are CTZNK and we are all part of the broader CTZNSND.”
Building off of his idea of creating a continuity with his music, we asked if CTZNJ can expand on this, which led to him divulging some inside information to up and coming music and his talents expand beyond the electronic world and include guitar and saxophone:
“Bringing people together, spreading love through these tunes. I plan on releasing a remix of my homie Christian French’s song Love Ride next. Eventually I will collect these remixes into an EP called the Heartbreak Headbanger Remixes. I play the sax and guitar – i'm working on my live show right now that incorporates these instruments.”
We were so happy to be able to speak with such a creative mind and really get some insight, learning that CTZNJ really isn't making music for the sake of being famous, playing the largest stages in the world, rather, he is bringing us all together in a cohesive manner that manner talents overlook; this is at the heart of what CTZNJ brings to the table and allows us to honor him as our Artist of the week.
