JX RIDERS is the collective name of two accomplished producers - Dave Audé and Martin Kierszenbaum - who've joined forces to mine their deep-rooted love for house music.
Dave Audé has scored 117 no. 1 records on the Billboard Dance Club Chart, co-written and co-produced Selena Gomez’s Top 5 “Kill ‘Em With Kindness” and won a GRAMMY for his remix of Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk" ft. Bruno Mars.
Martin Kierszenbaum has written and produced songs for Madonna, Robyn, and Lady Gaga including 4 songs on the latter's debut album, The Fame, for which he was nominated for a GRAMMY. Kierszenbaum also co-wrote t.A.T.u.'s "All The Things She Said" which spent 4 weeks at no. 1 in the U.K.
The two musicians first met when Audé remixed that very song. They quickly became fast musical friends, sharing tips on drum sounds, recording techniques and (especially) synths. They soon discovered that the first keyboard they'd each ever owned was a Roland JX-3P. When they decided to make music together, they fittingly named their duo JX RIDERS.
In September 2016, JX RIDERS hit no. 1 on the Billboard Dance Chart with their debut single “Sweet Dreams" featuring vocalist Skylar Stecker.
Their follow-up, "Hiccup," features Sisterwife, formerly of Shiny Toy Guns, and harnesses JX RIDERS' affinity for house and hip hop.
"We were going for that feeling that we first got when hearing those early house and rap records - a raw and immediate reaction," shares Audé.
"When you put on a Mr. Lee twelve inch or a Mantronix record," adds Kierszenbaum. "The feeling just overtakes you. It's kind of like a hiccup."
JX RIDERS "Hiccup" featuring Sisterwife is out now on Cherrytree Records.
