Acclaimed British producer/songwriter Jonas Blue returns with the club-focused single “I Wanna Dance” – the first track to be released on Jonas’ new imprint, Electronic Nature, via Astralwerks. Hypnotic, upbeat and featuring an infectious vocal hook, “I Wanna Dance” is a dark and deep groover, created with the dancefloor in mind and evocative of Jonas’ DJ sets.
“The ‘I Wanna Dance’ hook actually came to me when I was in bed and just in that lucid moment between consciousness and sleep…,” says Jonas. “I jumped out of bed and recorded a voice note of the vocal hook and I went into the studio the next day fully inspired.”
The release comes in advance of Jonas’ I Wanna Dance With North America Summer Tour, which kicks off at Lollapalooza on August 3. Dates include an August 9 show at Marquee Dayclub in Las Vegas. Tickets are available HERE. See below for itinerary. In addition to the North American dates, Jonas has a slew of Ibiza shows scheduled this summer and will also appear at festivals across Europe and Asia, including Tomorrowland, Mysteryland, Lollapalooza Paris and Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival.
Having already established his monthly radio show, available for streaming HERE, and successful events at London’s Ministry of Sound, Electric Brixton and Hï Ibiza under the Electronic Nature brand, launching his own label is a natural progression for Jonas.
Jonas explains, “The ethos behind the label is to embrace and channel the clubbier side of who I am, and also over time I’d also like to bring new talent through, as I have done with featured vocalists. I’d like to help nurture some of the new house and electronic music producers via releases on the label.”
In an era of slow building careers, Jonas is an anomaly. With nearly 7.5 billion streams and 40 million singles sales to date, the five-time BRIT Award nominee has become a mainstage DJ, powerhouse producer and critically acclaimed songwriter. His 2018 debut album, Blue, is certified Gold in the U.S. and features three Platinum singles – his breakthrough hit “Fast Car,” which reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart, “Perfect Strangers” and “Mama” – plus the Gold-certified single “Rise” featuring Jack & Jack, and “Polaroid,” his collaboration with Liam Payne and Lennon Stella. Coming on the heels of early 2019 singles “What I Like About You” ft. Theresa Rex and “Ritual,” his recent collaboration with Tiësto & Rita Ora, ”I Wanna Dance” showcases Jonas’ ability to produce fresh, exciting dancefloor tracks alongside the global smash singles he’s become known for, demonstrating that he is truly a multi-faceted artist.
