Jonas Blue the young, up and coming London producer gets his musical cues from pop and classic dance music. But his latest single, Fast Car, came from reimagining one of his mother’s favorite songs. Jonas says he remembered hearing Tracy Chapman’s classic Fast Car on repeat as a child. Jonas traded the original guitar from the track for an upbeat tropical house sound. He admits that finding the right vocalist was the difficult part. One night he heard a unique bluesy voice lilting from the basement of an East London pub. The young sultry voice was that of Dakota. The very next day Jonas and Dakota were in the studio to record Fast Car. His rendition has found its way to the top of the Australian charts and this week it hits the decks on In The Mix with HK™. Let me know what you think of the track by giving it a Volume Up or Volume Down on my Twitter @HowardHKKessler.
