“My goal is to be undeniable”
FelixThe1st is one of the hottest names in UK street dance today. His YouTube channel has almost half a million followers; his live performances are sold out within minutes; and he has been nominated for Best Breakdancer at the Urban Music Awards. But he is still just 21. How did he go from being a shy teenager to becoming a global star? And how does he balance his life as a professional dancer with his burgeoning music career?
In April 2016, FelixThe1st began uploading videos to YouTube. He had already performed professionally since age 10, but felt like he needed to prove himself as a solo artist. “I wanted to do something different,” says Felix. “My friends told me I could make some money off YouTube.”
He uploaded his first video, ‘Freestyle Overlord’, and received about 200 views. A few months later, he posted another video, ‘Flexin’ With My Homies’. Within weeks, his numbers had doubled. “That’s when I knew I’d found my calling,” he says.
His popularity grew rapidly. In 2017, he won the award for best breakdancing act at the Urban Music Awards, beating artists such as Stormzy and Mr Eazi. By 2018, he had amassed almost 500,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel. FelixThe1st became a household name.
But fame came at a price. As his profile rose, so too did his expectations. “There are times where you’re up late at night working on a beat, and you think, ‘What am I doing?’ You start questioning yourself,” he says. “You ask yourself questions like, ‘Am I good enough?'”
As he continued to grow his audience, he also faced criticism. Some people accused him of copying others’ moves and styles, while others questioned whether he was exploiting young dancers. One thing was clear: FelixThe1st was no longer satisfied with simply dancing. He wanted to write songs, produce beats and record albums.
And so, in January 2018, FelixThe1st left his day job behind and launched his own label, FELIX MUSIC. Now, he spends most days writing lyrics and composing melodies. When he isn’t busy recording or performing, he enjoys hanging out with friends, watching movies and playing basketball.
