JAX AND MARTIN SOLVEIG ANNOUNCE COLLABORATIVE PROJECT EUROPA

JAX’S HEADLINING NORTH AMERICAN TOUR KICKS OFF NEXT MONTH WITH STOPS IN CHICAGO, NEW YORK, LOS ANGELES AND MORE

Europa have today unleashed their debut single ‘All Day And Night’, featuring white-hot US singer Madison Beer. Europa is Jax Jones and Martin Solveig: two friends who also just so happen to be multi-platinum artists (with over 4 billion combined streams), pushing each other to investigate musical avenues they’d never explore on their own.

Europa is club-focused pop music and pop-focused club music. Europa is friendship. Europa is a larger-than-life explosion of unexpected combinations, total freedom, unexpected twists and bridges not walls. Europa is the phrase ‘stronger together’ brought to life in vivid colours.

Born out of a mutual admiration and cemented by a hug given by Martin after Jax’s set in Ibiza, the pair’s collaboration has been a long time coming. It was only after Solveig made the Eurostar trip to Jax’s London studio that they realized that they had something special and the spirit of Europa started to take shape: ‘’for the first-ever Europa session, Martin came in and played a song with a cheeky sax riff in it.’’ Jax adds ‘’He looked at me as if to say: ‘This is a bit taboo, but we could try it.’ And then I said: ‘Well if we’re doing that, how about TRANCE?”

One delight of the genre-agnostic Europa outlook is that it’s truly a project without hard borders, and with US singer/songwriter Madison Beer, who was recognized by Billboard on its 2018 ‘21 Under 21’ roster of the most promising young talents in music, contributing vocals to chart-ready walloper All Day And Night, Europa is also a celebration of frictionless relationships with the rest of the world.  “To have Madison on our first track is great. She has an undeniable truth in her vocal that we both really like and since launching her career she’s become an influential voice of her generation,” Martin comments. Late last year Madison released ‘Hurts Like Hell’, which continues to climb the charts and was described by Complex Magazine as her “biggest track to date.” The song is just a glimpse of what’s to come from her highly-anticipated upcoming debut studio album this summer. Future singles will pair Europa with further still-under-wraps vocalists; they’ll be complemented in Europa’s live shows by a raft of club-ready cuts bursting with spontaneity and openness.

“A huge common point for us is that we want people to have fun,” Jax and Martin explain. “Europa has allowed both of us to step out from what everybody else might consider reasonable. Music doesn’t have to be reasonable. You might even say it shouldn’t be.”

The announcement of Europa follows an impressive start to 2019 for London’s Jax Jones. A second BRIT Award nomination in a row came in the wake of his latest Top 10 collaboration – the groove-fueled earworm ‘Play’ ft. Years & Years. He plays his biggest headline show to date at London’s Roundhouse on 6th April, before heading to America for a landmark nine date tour.

Next month, Jax will embark on a headlining tour of North America. Kicking off on April 18 in Washington, D.C., the 10-date run wraps up on May 3 in Los Angeles at The Roxy. See full list of tour dates below.

Today, award-winning globally renowned electronic music producer NETSKY shares a new club anthem “Ice Cold” [feat. David Guetta] via Republic Records and Casablanca Records. Get it HERE. Watch official visualizer HERE.

“Ice Cold” opens the duality of upcoming Palmtrees & Powerlines, the two-part project that explores both NETSKY’s magnetic brand of pop music (on Palmtrees) and his genre-bending innovation as a creator of club tracks (onPowerlines). “Ice Cold”, with its dancefloor vibes, finds its home in Powerlines, where previously released “Téquila Limonada” feat. A.CHAL, aligns with Palmtrees. Each song from Palmtrees & Powerlines will find a place within one of these two worlds NETSKY has built.

About their “Ice Cold” collaboration, Guetta excitedly said, “Working with NETSKY on this track was amazing. He’s such a great producer, and I’m really happy with the end result.

NETSKY recently produced two cuts on the Guetta’s recent album 7, including “Light Headed” [feat. Sia] and “Battle” [feat. Faouzia].

“’Ice Cold’ was such a fun song to make.” NETSKY adds about the new song, “I remember both Stargate and David Guetta making me crank up this demo in a LA studio and all of us vibing to it together. Working with David was amazing, it was inspiring seeing his work routine and energy in studio and I’m so excited to be releasing this single today.”

Stay tuned for more to come from Palmtrees & Powerlines.

Check out “Hurting” Here!

SG Lewis scores percussive basslines alongside arpeggiated synth melodies to accompany AlunaGeorge’s honeyed vocals as she pines after lost love. The resultant track is a dream-worthy collaboration ready for any dance floor.

Speaking on the track, SG says “Aluna and I met for the first time in LA earlier this year, and I was talking to her about the album concept, and in particular, Dark. Aluna has been a part of so many dance records that I love, so I knew I wanted to make a club track with her! After we ate burritos and hung out, we made “Hurting” super quickly – the whole process was super natural between the two of us, and she has such an amazing ear for production.”

“Hurting” is the latest in a long run of exceptional collabs for SG, with his upcoming album featuring J Warner, Kartell and a host of others yet to be announced. His recent single, “Better” featuring Clairo instantly became a viral hit last month and was labelled “addictive” by Pigeons and Planes with Hypebeast calling it “the perfect summer jam.” After an incredible run of dates across Europe, America, Australia and Asia so far this year, SG also recently announced a massive US headline tour kicking off at Washington DC’s Union Stage on September 25th and making stops atBrooklyn’s Elsewhere on September 28th & 29th and LA’s The Fonda Theater on October 19th.

This year, SG Lewis began releasing music from his ambitious three-part album Dusk, Dark, Dawn. In his first Phase, Dusk, SG imagined the trajectory of one night out in club music and is a loving tribute to club and youth culture. Referencing a wide breadth of styles and genres, Dusk used disco, west coast hip-hop and 80s electro to set the scene. Now in Phase 2, Dark uses heavier styles like techno and rap to move the crowd into the night.

SG LEWIS RELEASES ‘DUSK’

Songwriter and producer SG Lewis shares ‘Dusk’. The 6-track release is the first chapter of his three-part dedication to club music: ‘Dusk, Dark, Dawn’ and is available to buy and stream now via all partners.

Presented over three phases, ‘Dusk, Dark, Dawn’ maps the trajectory of one night out over the course of an album, matching genres and tempos different stages of that night, beginning at sun-down, both inside and outside the club. On ‘Dusk’, SG Lewis plays with disco, west coast hip-hop and 80’s electro references to start the story. “Disco has always had the association of the start of a night for me. I spent a lot a time as a resident DJ in clubs and disco was always that magnetic genre, always brought people onto the dancefloor.” Lead single ‘Aura’ blends SG’s signature warm, uptempo house with disco inflections. “There’s an undeniable beauty to this part of the night. The apprehension, excitement… ‘Dusk’ is the warm-up for the heavier, darker things to come.”

The 6-track release includes features with J Warner and Kartell (Roche Musique) and will be released in full on April 6th via Casablanca/Republic Records. The project will soon segue into ‘Dark’ – a phase dedicated to harder, post-midnight club music styles like techno and hip-hop – and finally ‘Dawn’, dedicated to euphoria and chillout. Throughout the week SG Lewis has been touring across the UK with his final sold out show happening tomorrow at London’s Electric Brixton where he’ll be bringing out some very special guests.

PMR-signed songwriter and producer SG Lewis today shares his new single ‘Aura’. The single is taken from his expansive new project: a three-part album due to roll out over the coming year. ‘Aura’ features rising UK songwriter J Warner and is available to buy and stream now on all partners.

“Everything I do stems from club culture,” says SG Lewis of the idea behind his upcoming three-part project. “Dusk, Dark, Dawn is about taking the intentions of that music – all of those feelings, those experiences I had from the age of 17 to 19 – and placing them outside of the context of a club. Those memories of being a young person and having my mind completely blown.”

Presented over three phases, ‘Dusk, Dark, Dawn’ maps the trajectory of one night out over the course of an album, matching genres and tempos different stages of that night, beginning at sun-down, both inside and outside the club. In the first phase ‘Dusk’, SG Lewis plays with disco, west coast hip-hop and 80’s electro references to start the story. “Disco has always had the association of the start of a night for me.

The apprehension, excitement… ‘Dusk’ is the warm-up for the heavier, darker things to come.”

SG Lewis will tour a four-date run across the UK in April, playing in Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and London. Full details follow.
