WATCH CBS NEWS AWKWARDLY REPORT ON THE 9 YEAR OLD DJ "TAKING DANCE MUSIC BY STORM"


We already told you about 11-year-old Australian EDM producer Black Summer, but now there’s an even younger kid on the scene; nine-year-old Florida DJ John Anthony, whom CBSNews recently covered on a local television spot, featuring the third-grader’s “2014 Promo Video.”

“What are we doing wrong? There’s a monkey who’s a movie star and a nine-year-old who’s an awesome DJ,” quips the host, while watching the child prodigy’s set. “There is home video of me acting like this when I was nine, and I didn’t have a bunch of people going along with me. I just had my dad taking off his belt.”

Encouraged by his father rather than punished, the aspiring club hero practices in Tampa’s Amphitheater nightclub, which his dad owns, and where he receives tips from the local residents after school. According to an interview on Insomniac’s site, Anthony started DJing at six, loves deep house and trap, and uses Ableton with Launchpad to DJ, practicing ’til 9PM nightly. He recently made his first festival appearance at Tampa’s Sunset Music Festival, alongside headliners Tiesto, Skrillex and Armin van Buuren.

“They don’t think of me as a DJ first; they’re used to it,” the nine-year-old DJ explains, of his fellow third-graders. “I’ve been going to the same elementary school since kindergarten, so they’re all used to it.”
