POP maestro Jonas Blue started the year on a positive note with his house banger Something Stupid, a collaboration with the hotly tipped RnB artist, AWA.
The single, released in February has already amassed over 13 million streams globally and is a welcome addition to the multi-platinum producer, DJ and songwriter’s discography and a return to his dance roots. It also sees him continue his strong track record of teaming up with rising new talent, this time with AWA.
Jonas says; “2020 was so hard for us all and I really wanted to come back in 2021 with some positive uplifting energy. The iconic Robin S sample really gave me that feeling in the studio, and when AWA came in and delivered her incredible vocals, it all came together.”
We caught up with the Jonas and asked him to talk us through ten of his favourite tracks from his Electronic Nature record label. Watch our video interview with Jonas Blue from 2017 HERE.
Jonas Blue – I Wanna Dance
“This was the first release on my label and the first release where I recorded my own vocals and everything was 100% by me. This one absolutely goes off at a festival! I’m missing that feeling!”
Punctual – Imagine
“The first single I signed to my label from UK duo Punctual. It’s a tasteful piano house cover of the UK RnB classic by Shola Ama.”
Dark Heart – Came For The Music
“Dark Heart is an artist who’s fully part of the Jonas Blue family. He worked with me on a couple of tracks for my album, and I am so proud to see his success grow and flourish! Check out the bassline on this one!”
Jerome Price – Fallen
“Jerome again is part of the family and is such a talented producer. This tune takes you on a proper journey. Jerome was trying to create a dystopian feeling that he was getting while walking around his local area during lockdown when no one was out on the usually busy streets. He nailed it.”
Tom Westy – Remember Me
“The latest addition to the Electronic Nature roster. Tom Westy is a very talented young artist from Wales, and this track has a blissed out intro but then really takes you into the main room of a club like Hi in Ibiza with the drop and the energy as the track progresses.”
Felix Da Housecat – My Life Is Music (Jonas Blue Remix)
“A classic track from a classic Chicago house legend. I was really happy to sign this one to our label and do the remix last year. Play it loud because the bass pumps!”
Tough Love – Crazy For Your Love
“Been a fan of Tough Love since they did the cover of Jodeci – Freek’N You. I love what they did with Crazy For Your Love – proper UK house energy with a big vocal.”
Jack Wins – Best Of Me ft. Katie Sky
“Jack Wins is someone whose tracks I would always play in my sets. I was really glad he could be part of the label. This one has such an emotive breakdown with a vocal that really grabs you.”
Jonas Blue & Retrovision – All Night Long
“A collaboration I did with super talented French artist Retrovision for the second release on my label. I remember playing this at the AMF Festival in Amsterdam in 2019 and it went OFF!”
Dark Heart – Everything
“Another banger from our boy Dark Heart. Straight dance floor house music. All we need is a busy dance floor again to hear it on!”
