Porter Robinson. Madeon. Martin Garrix. What do all of these guys have in common? Youth and talent far beyond their ages. Each of these three emerged onto their respective scenes devoid of gimmicks and let their music illustrate their prodigious musical abilities, which appears to be exactly the game plan for 17-year-old Austrian producer, Filous.
While he’s yet to reveal any original material, Filous has been bestowing a string of pop-leaning, guitar-laden remixes over the past nine months that have seen an incredible response on Soundcloud — hitting nothing less than 1/4 million plays on each offering. This month, Filous has taken on RAC & Alex Ebert’s “Tear You Down,” once again letting the pleasant sounds of guitar strums carry the gentle House tune along with divine vocals from the Ed Sharpe frontman.
Listen to the remix below and expect some very big things from this promising young gun in 2015.
