Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Jonas Blue is in talks for a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Shawn Men­des for his de­but stu­dio al­bum. The ‘Per­fect Strangers’ pro­ducer re­cently re­leased a com­pi­la­tion LP ‘Elec­tronic Na­ture The Mix 2017’, but he is hard at work on his first ever record and is wait­ing for the ‘Treat You Bet­ter’ to have a free slot to head into the stu­dio with him. Speak­ing ex­clu­sively to BANG Show­biz, Jonas - whose real name is Guy Robin - said: “I’m in talks with Shawn Men­des, we spoke the other night and we’re try­ing to make some­thing hap­pen but it’s al­ways sched­ule de­pen­dent. “We just need to find the right date. I want to get in the stu­dio with Shawn, do­ing it re­motely doesn’t re­ally work with an artist like Shawn. “I need to know where he’s com­ing from and he needs to know where I’m com­ing from, we need to be in the same room to­gether shar­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence.” In the mean­time, fans of the DJ will have to make do with the com­pi­la­tion. Speak­ing about the col­lec­tion of songs, made up of remixes of some of the big­gest hits in the charts hand se­lected by Jonas and two col­lab­o­ra­tions with Mark Villa and EDX, he said: “This com­pi­la­tion al­bum came about from a lot of peo­ple ask­ing me for my DJ sets so I de­cided to put to­gether a com­pi­la­tion of 60 songs that I play when I DJ that are cur­rent that I re­ally love and songs that I’ve loved for a while and I’ve put them into a mas­sive DJ mix. They’re great tunes and it’s a great way of get­ting my brand Elec­tronic Na­ture out there. I know peo­ple can put these tracks to­gether them­selves but peo­ple want to ex­pe­ri­ence the mu­sic like a DJ set. I’m al­ways look­ing at other DJ’s sets and love dis­cov­er­ing new tracks. I feel like a kid where I’m look­ing for the fresh­est, new­est tracks.”‘Elec­tronic Na­ture - The Mix 2017’ is out now.
