10 Things You Should Know About Vanilla Ace


London producer Vanilla Ace the exciting house producer to watch this summer, with a unique sound spanning indie-tronica, deep house and nu disco. Ace heads across the pond for 19-stop North American tour with stops at Hard Summer, Bardot, Spybar and many more.

To celebrate the new tour he’s giving away his remix of ZHU’s “Faded.” Already a dark gorgeous nu disco tune from the mysterious LA native, Vanilla Ace revs up the song’s deep and sexy vibe for his remix.

We asked Vanilla Ace to share 10 things about himself so new listeners could get familiar, with the rising artist. Check them out after the jump.

1. “I have the biggest sweet tooth and I absolutely love American candy and chocolate. It’s very different to the UK.”
2. “I grew up reading VIBE magazine and the Source (big hip hop/R&B fan) so this is an absolute honor!”
3. “I once performed Snow’s “Informer” at my school end of year show with two friends as my backup dancers.”
4. “Being a massive Jodeci fan growing up, I once met DeVante Swing at a after party (my Dad was doing the pictures), I must of been 14 years old, think he was surprised white teenagers dug their music.”
5. “I love Breaking Bad and when I play Albuquerque on this tour I will have my picture outside THAT house! Missed out last time.”
6. “I’m a Leo…born July 27th. I don’t mind belated gifts at my gigs…thanks in advance! Haha.”
7. “My drink of choice is Honey Jack & Coke, sweet tooth strikes again.”
8. “I used to present and model on a TV show called the Mag in my teens- it was on the UK’s Channel 5. I’d probably cringe watching it now.”
9. “I once hijacked Ed Sheeran’s twitter account when he was staying at my friend’s place. He wasn’t happy about it!”
10. My first ever job was washing hair and sweeping up in a local hairdresser’s. The only upside was that they would let me do a mixtape of my favorite tunes on the days I worked.”
