E192 - Jax Jones: The letter I wrote that changed my life
Jax Jones, known privately as Timucin Lam, is a DJ, songwriter and record producer. He rose to fame in 2014 and since then has sold over 35 million records, with 4 billion streams. For the first time, he opens up to Jake and Damian about how his turbulent childhood, challenging family relationships and immense pressure to succeed from a young age has shaped him: “Music was a way out. It was a way to mean something.” Jax shares the details of his manifesto, which he wrote at a crucial time in his life and what this means for his future.
He describes himself as constantly being followed by a ghost, a dark shadow that drives him ruthlessly to achieve any goal. Being in therapy from a young age has led him to great self-reflection and analysis, which allows him to turn his life into valuable lessons for those listening.
