Jonas Blue shot to fame with his debut track ‘Fast car’ in 2015. The British DJ and song-writer is known for his compositions such as ‘Perfect strangers’ and ‘By your side’ (2016), and recent track Mama. Now, the 27-year-old DJ “plans to come to India for a music tour next year.”

“Definitely India is one place I’d love to travel to and play,” says Jonas, who likes making music and travelling the world. Talking about his tryst with music, he says that he got inclined towards it at the age of seven. “By the time I was 11 years old, I got into DJing and when I was 12 years old I got into [music] production. My family wasn’t involved in music, but I love music. I knew music was for me from an early age,” says Blue.

Talking about success and what keeps him going, he says, “‘Fast car’ was the biggest song for me, which I came up with, at the start of my career. I am grateful for the way it was received,” he says, adding, “It [success] has given me an amazing platform to make music and share my music across the world. So rather than things such as money and fame, I am more concerned about my music reaching to a wider audience.”

Is there a pressure to keep up with the changing trends? “I am always listening to new music and reading about music. So it’s a combination, obviously having your own sound helps. I try to work on songs and new concepts, and try and do something different from my last record,” says Blue.
