Born and raised in London, multi-instrumentalist Jonas Blue has so far taken the music industry by storm. A true dance vibe but with pop sensibilities, its clear to see that he has cleverly crafted a sound which fills the void that so many are craving for.
His debut release ‘Fast Car’ features the incredible young vocal talent, Dakota. The record itself is already a certified global smash. The track is also the number one best selling single of the year from a UK artist so far. It has also received multi-platinum status across the world, having sold 3 million records, with over 350 million streams across all platforms, and the official video rapidly closing in on 100million YouTube streams.
The success continues across the iTunes Charts in 53 countries, including #1’s in the UK, Germany, Sweden, Australia and New Zealand. As well as reaching the #1 spot on the US viral chart on Spotify, ‘Fast Car’ was officially certified platinum in the UK and spent 10 consecutive weeks in the Top 10 Chart. The record also gained 4-times platinum status in Sweden, 3-times platinum status in Australia, Gold in Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Poland and South Africa. His follow up single, ‘Perfect Strangers’ featuring the sublime vocals of JP Cooper, has now been released globally and is set to follow suit.
As well as working on his own music, Jonas has remixed tracks for the likes of Birdy and Coldplay. On the road, his touring schedule has taken flight in a big way with Jonas already playing to huge crowds, from 100,000 people at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City to taking the main stage at the legendary Webster Hall in New York City.
With that said and done, 2016 will continue to thrive for the London based producer who has already proven his worth in such a short period of time and across such a global scale.
