Jauz Biography (Age)
Sam Vogel was born on September 2, 1993, in Mill Valley, California, USA. In his youth, he had a strong affinity for music and sound mixing. He says about his music career that he always knew he was going to make music, but he just wasn’t sure how he would do it. As he grew up, his dreams and desires continued to change.
At the age of 15, he started playing guitar and making electronic music on his computer. He fell in love with this style of music because he was independent and decided to get serious about it.
When he decided to pursue a music career, he enrolled in the music production school Icon Collective to learn all about his new field of interest. Sam worked hard and started releasing his own tracks before taking the name ‘Jauz’. He originally used the name ‘Escape Dubstep’ as his stage name, but changed it to ‘Jauz’ for its brevity and simplicity. He described the name as a slang meaning “bullshit”.
Jauz officially started his career in 2013 with remixes, and the songs caught the attention of some famous DJs like Skrillex, Borgore, and Diplo. Another person who was decisive for Jauz’s career was Kennedy Jones. Jones played one of his remixes, which put him in the spotlight. Jones also introduced him to Moe Shalizi, who became his manager. This connection helped him to release music on Buygore (Borgoes record company).
In 2014 Jauz released his single “Feel the Volume” under Mad Decent (Diplo’s record company). He also released several songs on different labels for electronic dance music like Spinnin Records, Monstercat, and others. As part of a program, Jauz 2015 worked with Skrillex on the release of a single called “Squad Out”. He also worked with Diplo to remix “Final Song” in December 2016.
The year 2017 was one of the biggest for Jauz. On November 6th he founded his record label – Bite This – and launched it on November 6th. He also released a number of singles, including “The Game”, “I Hold Still”, “Ghost” and “Claim to Be”.
He subsequently performed alongside various artists who released songs such as “Keep The Rave Alive”, “Motherfuckers”, “Diamonds”, “Super Fly” and “Dance Floor”.
His Net Worth
Jauz does not tend to show his wealth on social media, so it is difficult to determine his actual wealth. Given the number of hits on YouTube and the success of the songs he has published, his net worth is certainly considerable. While some put the amount at around $1.7 million, others argue that it is more. All in all, he seems to be doing well.
