Spotlight on Projexx

The Dancehall-inspired artist that calls his sound a "melting pot of musical genres"

Projexx’s journey started at the age of 12 years old when he began to experiment with songwriting and production in his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica.

The son of producer Lloyd “John John” James and grandson of legendary dancehall producer Lloyd “King Jammy”; he learned the fundamentals of music by sitting in and observing their studio sessions where he would use his curiosity and acute observation skills to absorb as much knowledge as possible – which he would soon apply to his own work.

His music is as versatile as his life experiences; as a teenager, he would travel back and forth between Jamaica and Brenton, Canada, to live with his aunt. 

With a sound that is impossible to pigeonhole, his influences span from Dennis Brown to Drake and everything in between – self-described as “a melting pot of musical genres” – he draws inspiration from these sources to create his genre-bending sound. 

Projexx's new single "Caution" is out now!
