ADE 2019: ADE Beats announces YoungKio

The Dutch producer is at the centre of one of the most exciting music stories in the history of the entertainment industry and will share his insights at Melkweg on Friday October 18th.

Name one hip-hop producer, for example, who before he even turned 20-years old could boast that he has Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus, Mason Ramsey, Young Thug and BTS in his discography? Who with one song amassed more than one hundred million streams on Spotify? And who, while still living at his parents house in Purmerend (near Amsterdam), watched his song become the longest running number one record in the United States?

No record had a bigger chart impact this year than Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road🤠 – a song that went viral at TikTok, Instagram, SoundCloud, Spotify and YouTube and spawned remixes all over the globe. The beat of Old Town Road was produced by YoungKio from The Netherlands, who uploaded his beat on his page on online beat licensing platform BeatStars, where he sold it to Lil Nas X. After that, things exploded. Records were smashed, YoungKio featured in the all-star video and he helped create the most impactful song phenomenon of the year.

Hear the amazing inside-story from YoungKio himself at ADE Beats. Tickets are for the conference for hip-hop, bass and beats at Melkweg are now available, ADE Beats is also accessible for ADE Pass and ADE Conference Pass holders.

The various passes are available here.
