|JONAS BLUE X FELIX JAEHN’S “WEEKENDS” OUT NOW VIA ASTRALWERKS|
|Jonas Blue and Felix Jaehn have unleashed an infectious track that will blow out the winter blues – “Weekends,” released now via Astralwerks. While the multi-Platinum producers/artists/DJs had long discussed working together, it was an iconic 2022 night in Ibiza that provided the creative spark for their first collaboration. Through serendipity, Jonas and Felix found themselves on the same bill during the acclaimed summer residency at Pacha, curated by Robin Schulz, and “Weekends” was born. Listen HERE. |
“Felix and I had the idea to do a collaboration together when we both played at Pacha Ibiza at the end of last summer,” recalls Jonas Blue. “We’d been bouncing a few ideas back and forth and landed on ‘Weekends’ being the perfect track for us to do together. It’s a bit different to what you might expect from us individually. We wanted to do something different and with mad energy to it.”
2023 is shaping up to be huge for Jonas, who has gone multi-Platinum in over 20 countries and ranks in the Top 3 of the most-streamed dance acts in the U.K. He kicked off the year with a sold-out headline show at London’s Ministry of Sound and the momentum continues to build with U.S. residencies just announced in Las Vegas and Atlantic City and limited tickets remaining for his March tour of Japan – with the Tokyo shows already completely sold out. “Weekends” arrives on the heels of a string of 2022 releases from Felix that included “Rain in Ibiza” (with The Stickmen Project featuring Calum Scott), “Do It Better” (feat. Zoe Wees), “Call It Love” (with Ray Dalton) and “Wishlist.” “Call It Love” is currently on the radio charts in over 23 European countries and is now No. 8 on the German radio tally.

About Felix Jaehn
German dance DJ and producer Felix Jaehn became a household name in 2015 with his tropical house reinterpretation of Chaka Khan’s timeless classic “Ain’t Nobody.” Later that year, he achieved international success with his remix of Omi’s “Cheerleader.” The track shot up to #1 across 55 countries and topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for five consecutive weeks, which resulted in Jaehn becoming one of the most in-demand electronic acts in the world.
Since then, he has continuously delivered a stream of infectious and high-quality productions that dominate playlists, dancefloors and airwaves worldwide. His inimitable brand of pop-dance and house combined with his magnetic live stage presence has seen him take over the decks at some of the world’s most exclusive stages, including Tomorrowland, Parookaville, ULTRA Music Festival and many more. He has received a series of prestigious awards and accolades, including the 3 x title of “Best Dance Act” at Germany’s prestigious 1Live Krone radio awards. In 2020, he became the youngest artist in history to receive two Diamond Awards in Germany. To date, Jaehn’s records have racked up over 200 Gold and Platinum certifications from the U.S. to Australia and beyond and amassed over 10 million combined streams worldwide.
Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, Astralwerks is America’s preeminent home for groundbreaking artists. Founded in New York City in 1993 by Caroline Records staffers who recognized the promise of the nascent electronic/ambient scene, the label has also launched the careers of indie, alternative and experimental artists. The first studio albums from The Chemical Brothers, Halsey, Swedish House Mafia, Empire of the Sun, Alison Wonderland, Phoenix and Porter Robinson, among many others, were all released by Astralwerks in the U.S., fueling a sense of shared discovery with fans.
As a testament to this visionary approach, Astralwerks has amassed 30 GRAMMY® nominations, taken home six GRAMMY Awards and had historic releases from the likes of Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, Fatboy Slim, David Guetta, deadmau5, Eric Prydz, The Avalanches, ILLENIUM and many more. Now based at the iconic Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, CA, the label is driven by a scalable, independent and global-thinking ethos that has recently drawn such artists as Alesso, Bob Moses, Chris Lake, SG Lewis, Surf Mesa and ZHU to its roster and led to the launch of Astralwerks Asia. The label has also released such massive singles as the RIAA-certified 6x Platinum “Happier” by Marshmello + Bastille, “Piece Of Your Heart” by MEDUZA & Goodboys, which is certified Platinum and received a GRAMMY nomination, and the Gold certified “Losing It” by FISHER.
