Prince Fox wants to give something deeper to the dance floor. So, he approaches making electronic dance music with a classic ear for songwriting, generating his very own “future pop” in the process.
The New York artist and producer explains, “The songs are structured in a traditional manner with verses and choruses, but they’re produced with an underground flavor—spanning everything that influences me from deep house, to future bass, to UK garage. What holds it all together is this old school focus on composition. I want to write songs that are more than just builds and drops.”
Back in high school, Prince Fox—aka Sam Lassner—spent most of his days playing and studying guitar. Splitting his time between a job at the legendary Electric Lady Studios and doing the “singer-songwriter thing,” a pivotal experience opened him up to the possibilities inherent within producing electronic music.
Engrossing himself in creating, he remixed 3lau’s “How You Love Me” [feat. Bright Lights], and it took off on Hype Machine, reaching #2 and receiving an “Honorable Mention” as part of a Wavo remix contest. He would soon be tapped for official remixes of Cazzette’s “Blind Heart,” a Beatport hit, and SNBRN’s “Raindrops” [feat. Kerli]. The latter went Top 5 on Beatport, #1 on Hype Machine, and racked up over 1.7 million Soundcloud plays. As he continued developing a following, Casablanca Records reached out and signed him in late 2015.
His latest single with TV & music star HAILEE STEINFELD "Fragile" is the latest in a series of buzzing tracks from the NYC producer. "Fragile” is the first in a string of jams Prince Fox has in the works and one that will certainly find its way into sets from upcoming tour dates. Fans can also look out for an EP by the end of the year, one that will continue in the meaningful line of work he's pushed himself to in recent months.
