Not many teenagers can say they have millions of YouTube plays to their name.
19-year-old Ellis, who hails from Bromsgrove, is quickly making a name for himself as a producer in the house music scene across the UK and Europe.
He cites EDM influences to his work including Oliver Heldens, Zedd, Martin Garrix and Calvin Harris.
His remix of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ went viral and had received fifty million views.
Ellis often collaborates with vocalists and for his session brought along Colorado based singer-songwriter Laura Brehm to provide live vocals during his set.
