Grimes says her 10 month old baby is already making “super fire” music

Grimes and Elon Musk’s baby X AE A-Xii (fka X Æ A-12, here's an etymology explainer) hasn’t yet been alive for a year but is already getting into the music production game.

Last week Grimes took to Twitter to gush about young X AE A-Xii’s preciousness, writing: “My tenth month old baby just turned on my teenage engineering keyboard, built a unique patch and made a loop and then smiled at me ! Wtf!”

In a following post on Instagram, Grimes shared a video, showing X AE A-Xii smushing his hands over a Teenage Engineering OP-1 portable synth (RRP €1,399 - what's wrong with a good old Mattel Fisher Price glockenspiel?) and making some ominous sounds. Behind the camera, Grimes asks: “Did you make a loop? You’re so smart!”.

In the caption Grimes added: “Prob an accident but tbh he played a super fire set just now.”

It can’t be long until X AE A-Xii is braggadociously sharing shaky footage of Ableton screens to his own Instagram stories and making Forbes' 13 under 13 months hype list.
