Born in Chicago Illinois, SPACExLION was raised in Gary, Indiana, where he was exposed to Chicago music and dance culture. He grew up listening to an eclectic mix of hip-hop and jpop. As he got older his interest in music grew from just listening to actively wanting to create. He started producing around the age of 13, but didn’t decide to become serious about music until about 17. Now he spends his days producing his own original tracks, as well as doing commissioned work for various people/groups, and putting on shows with the organization he helped build, the EDMC.
