Joshua Christian Nanai (born 5 November 2002), better known as Jawsh 685, is a New Zealand beat maker and music producer.[4][5] While a student at Manurewa High School, in South Auckland, New Zealand, he made his breakthrough with the 2020 siren jam single "Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)" in collaboration with American R&B singer Jason Derulo. BTS made a remix to the song which reached number one in over 15 countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.[6]

Early life and career[edit]

Nanai was born and raised in South Auckland, and currently lives in Manurewa.[7][8] He is of mixed Pacific Islander descent: half-Samoan and half-Cook Islander.[7][9][10] The "685" in his stage name refers to the calling code for Samoa.[11] He became the first Pasifika and the third New Zealander ever to top the UK Singles Chart.[10]
