Jonas Blue – Who is this guy?


Jonas Blue, or Guy James Robin, is an English producer who has made it big in 2016. His debut single was a cover of Tracey Chapman’s “Fast Car”, with Dakota on the vocals.

The song reached number 2 on the UK charts, only beaten by Zayn’s Pillowtalk 😡. It also reached the top of 17 international charts. It was a perfect example of his love of tropical house music, also featuring in music of Kygo, Felix Jaehn and Lost Frequencies. His adaption of the plaintive acoustic song that Chapman originally produced made waves in the music industry, and to date the song has been streamed a massive 300 million times on Spotify!

His follow-up single, ‘Perfect Strangers’, was released in June 2016, and was a smash hit straight away. It went immediately to number 2, and JP Cooper’s vocals add an extra dimension to the bouncy track. It is an example of Jonas Blue’s evident songwriting ability, to come up with, and produce, a song that is an instant hit.

So where next for Jonas Blue? He is associated with two record labels, Universal Music and Virgin EMI Records, and is sure to start working on an album after his tour finishes in September. His unique sound fills a void longed for by many on the UK music scene, and his love for tropical house sounds bodes well – the success of songs like Firestone, Cheerleader and This Girl show that people clearly like this type of music.

Check out the acoustic version of Perfect Strangers! It sounds sooooo good! 👌👍
