As long as you haven't been under a rock for the last five years, you'll have noticed that gaming and music go hand in hand. Tons of your favourite musicians, including Post Malone, Drake, Travis Scott and Panic! At The Disco's Brendon Urie, are regularly live-streaming themselves playing Fortnite on Twitch and Fortnite's even co-opted (stolen?) BlocBoy JB's Shoot dance move to use as an emote.
Now even our Aussie musicians are getting involved, with up-and-coming Melbourne musician JXN (also known as Jacko Brazier) competing in a Fortnite competition in Melbourne this past weekend and taking out a $25,000 win.
The Pro-AM charity game features celebrity amateurs versus pro gamers as part of the Fortnite Summer Smash tournament, which was a component of this year's Tennis Australian Open.
With Peking Duk, Dave Hughes and more also competing, JXN was paired up with one of Oceania's best players MrFreshAsian and the pair ended up winning the entire game, taking home $25,000 each to give to a charity of their choice.
They ended up winning one out of three games but had the most points overall, which came from eliminations and how long they lasted in each game.
On whether he expected to win, JXN said, "Hell no, I knew everyone there was insane and I’m pretty trash compared. But I got paired with the young king MrFreshAsian so I was in good hands. I did my part though!"
JXN donated his prize money to Heaps Decent, a charity created by Diplo, DJ Levins and Nina Las Vegas to offer arts workshops to young people and artists in diverse communities.
And on why he picked Heaps Decent? "Because every kid deserves a chance to chase and achieve their dreams no matter what state their life’s in."
