DJ becomes world’s youngest record producer after writing his first track… aged just 12

December 17, 2012 | by | 3 Comments

A pint-sized DJ has picked up a new world record as the world’s youngest record producer after writing his first track – aged just 12.

Jack Hill first stepped into the booth at the tender age of three and is officially the youngest working DJ on the planet.

He also took a world record for the most songs mixed in one minute aged just 11, mastering ten records in 60 seconds.

Jack has now claimed another title by writing, producing and mixing his first track, Club DJ, which is set to be released in January.

The three minute dub-step tune features Jack – who had to stand on a CD box to reach the decks when he first started his hobby – voicing his own lyrics about the DJ industry.

Diddy DJ Jack, from Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, who even has his own radio station, is over the moon about his achievements.

He said: “It is something I have wanted to do for ages so I’m really pleased to have finished it.

“It was so much fun to do. I want to get a record label so I can bring out more songs.

“It is really cool to make my own song and have other people listen to my music. I hope it will get played on Kiss FM or Radio One.

“I’ll definitely play it on my radio show too.”

Talented Jack first stepped into the DJ booth helping dad Bob run his mobile karaoke disco as just three.

He now runs solo discos on Saturday night and has his own show at 7am on Sundays, on local station Nova 107.7 FM.

Jack, who features in the 2013 Guinness Book of World Records, started writing his song at the age of 10.

He spent two days in studios owned by DJ Gareth Clegg in Bristol – laying down his music first before adding lyrics.

The track was finished at home on Monday last week, when Jack mastered it for the final time.

Dad Bob, 47, said: “He came up with the idea and has done everything himself. The lyrics are about the DJ world and his Guinness World Record.

“I support him in any way I can because I know he has a natural talent and is going to be big in the music scene.”

Jack now has five world records to his including youngest DJ and club DJ.

He has had his own radio show since he was eight and still broadcasts weekly on Nova 107.7fm.

The superstar, who has even gigged in Italy and Spain, has also had a ten minute mix played on Radio 1-Extra.

His claim as the youngest person to produce a record was submitted to Guinness World Records last week.

    If he’s the youngest DJ, my 8 y.o.’s gotta be the youngest remixer….

    Been producing since I was 8y old and writing songs on my guitar since I was 6. I son’t have a studio or fancy equipment, I use a horrible cheap little netbook with a cracked fl studio. And you don’t need vynl decks to dj…. I use a small midi thing. So this is basically a scam. All he has is rich parents. Not skill. All he did was sample ‘For an Angel’ – PvD for the saws/arps and essentially made a demo for Vengeance Essential Dubstep in that ‘song’ he made.

    I’m with above Elliott Stanley here. I’ve not really been producing since I was 8 or writing guitar songs since I was 6. I have way less experience here. I started at about 11. Also, I don’t DJ.

    But I create all of my songs entirely from scratch with usually no single drum sample (some exceptions here) even and all scratch synths and drums and farts and arps and whatever.

    By the way, I am also doing collabs with aforementioned Elliott Stanley: soundcloud.com/hext3ria (includes others as well, involved artists are mentioned at the top of an article)
