New Music Worldwide is a weekly mix series hosted by Thris Tian.
This week’s New Music Worldwide comes from Generation Next.
Generation Next’s career in music always maintained an air of inevitability. The son of Detroit legend Big Strick (himself a cousin of FXHE boss Omar S), he grew up in a home where jazz, disco, house and techno reigned supreme. Inspired by contemporary hip-hop and RnB as much as he is the music of family friends Amp Fiddler, Kenny Dixon Jr and OB Ignitt, he’s enjoyed a musical upbringing like few others in modern-day Detroit.
Generation Next is also a DJ of some repute and has already shared the decks with the likes of Omar S, John FM and Walter Glasshouse, while in Europe he debuted his live show at Panorama Bar, which perhaps goes some way to explaining his standing amongst discerning electronic music fans.
