After establishing successful solo careers and building a name for themselves as DJs and producers, long-time friends Billy the Gent and Long Jawns officially joined forces as Gent & Jawns becoming an unstoppable presence in the world of club music. The release of their hit Moombahton anthem “Vibrate” launched them to the top of everyone’s list of producers to work with and earned them remixes for Datsik, Bare, and Muffler, as well as collaborations with Nadastrom, Torro Torro and JWLS. In 2012 they worked with mega-producer Diplo on his Express Yourself EP, which topped the iTunes charts as the number one electronic album. They followed up with an absolutely brilliant remix of the title track “Express Yourself,” which was played on festival main-stages worldwide by many of the top DJs in the world. Shortly after, they released “Holler,” their first official EP on Mad Decent’s Jeffrees label. Jeffrees went on to earn the iTunes Label of the Year honors. The duo ended the year proper when they released “TURNUP”, a track that’s being called the biggest trap song of 2012. In two weeks the track saw 80,000 plays and held position as the top electronic song on SoundCloud. While known for their flawless production, Gent & Jawns’ secret weapon is their ability to perform live. Long Jawns is a respected legend in his hometown of Richmond, VA, where he is widely known for throwing the biggest and best parties. Billy The Gent began DJing with support from his friend Dave Nada (Nadastrom, creator of Moombahton) in Washington, DC and quickly became a staple at the famous U-Street Music Hall. Together, Gent & Jawns have gone on to share the stage with top notch acts like Diplo, Dillon Francis, Nadastrom, Caspa, Craze, Die Antwoord, and more.
