Prince Fox – 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.
