Five EDM Child Stars

DJ Kai Song is 9 years old, and he will make you hate your life.

EDM's biological clock must be ticking. All the big DJs are having babies.

It appears the next big trend is child stars. They may be young, but they've got moves enough to get the attention of heavy hitters. Famous jocks like Steve Aoki, A-Trak (once a 15-year-old child star himself), DJ Cassidy, and more are throwing their weight behind these adorable beat-matchers. Someone has to take the throne when all these geezers retire.

Ready for your daily dose of "what am I doing with my life?" These kids' lives put us all to shame.

Did you hear that? This little girl is Steve Aoki's favorite! She probably just got her period, but she's been playing gigs in the hottest clubs across the country, alongside Sultan + Ned Shepard, LA Riots, and the grand cake-tosser himself. Her bio says there's no laptop or software around when she takes control of the beat (but those decks don't look like vinyl), and all her electro-house mixes have cutesy names like "Study Hall Mix," "Playing Past Curfew," and "Beats for the Bus Stop." She's trying to "bring EDM to a younger audience," but how young are these kids supposed to be?

Yep, as we continue down our list, the DJs keep getting younger. This little Navajo regularly shows off his skills via YouTube, and according to the video description, he's no novice. There's a clip of this kid spinning as young as 6, but his bio boasts an impressive start at age 3. That means he's already been juicing them turntables for a decade, and he's even more qualified to play your next party than your entire frat combined. He's even had a battle play dates with dudes like QBert. And his father is PoetikC. Daddy must be proud.

Doesn't put my life to shame. I get to drive fast cars, get on a plane by myself, drink, etc...these post-millenial babies can't even watch cool movies without being sneaky.
