Top 8 Youngest DJs Breakthrough In The History Of Music


Oratilwe Hlongwane(born:may 3,2012), a DJ from Florida, is 9 years old. DJ Arch Jnr, as he is called, is his stage name. He won the sixth season of South Africa's Got Talent when he was barely three years old in 2015. During his tryout, the tiny DJ even received the Golden Buzzer. The little prodigy is the youngest DJ in the world, as well as the youngest winner of America's Got Talent.

Martin Garrix

When the Dutch DJ/producer released the music that altered his life in 2013, he was only 17 years old. "Animals" would go on to dominate the dance festival circuit and chart at No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100, catapulting the teenager to fame.


Madeon was only 17 years old when his "Pop Culture" mash-up video became viral in July 2011. His brilliant follow-up remix of deadmau5's "Raise Your Weapon" belied his age and demonstrated that he wasn't a fluke.


When "Latch" reached No. 11 in the UK in 2012, Disclosure's Howard and Guy Lawrence were just 18 and 21 years old, respectively. It would gather traction and cross over to No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 nearly two years later, boosting the careers of its founders and featured vocalist Sam Smith.

Porter Robinson

Porter Robinson was one of electro house's brightest hopes even before he branched out on his own with Worlds. When his Spitfire EP on Skrillex's nascent OWSLA brand went to No. 1 on the iTunes Dance chart and Beatport in 2011, the North Carolina native was just 19 years old, crashing the latter's systems.

Thomas jack

When his tropical house mixtapes caught SoundCloud by storm in 2014, the charming Aussie was barely 20 years old, and he played a vital part in the discovery of musicians like Kygo and Klingande. Following that, Jack's career took off, with deals with Parlophone and William Morris Endeavor.


When current members Yasmine and Jahan Yousaf published their debut Play Hard EP in 2012, they were 20 and 22 years old, respectively. The platinum-selling smash single "Alive" debuted at No. 1 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay and delivered them their first Top 40 success (No. 32 on the Hot 100) with the album.
