Jax Jones, Martin Solveig and RAYE Come Together To Bring You 'Tequila'
21 Feb 2020
JAX JONES & RAYE REUNITE FROM THEIR MULTI-PLATINUM HIT ‘YOU DON’T KNOW ME’
Having just wrapped his second tour of Australia, playing to tens of thousands of people across the country with FOMO Festival, Jax Jones reunites with fellow dance music legend Martin Solveig for another Europa release, this time teaming up with longtime friend and collaborator RAYE to drop their new track ‘Tequila’. Setting the bar high, RAYE and Jax’s last joint release ‘You Don’t Know Me’ was one of the biggest selling dance tracks of 2017 globally, clocking up over a billion combined streams, going double platinum in Australia, reaching the top 10 of the Hot 100 airplay chart and hitting the #1 spot on the Shazam Australia chart.
Europa, meaning ‘stronger together’ is the multi-platinum DJs’ joint musical venture born out of the pair’s friendship and mutual desire to continue creating genre defying dance music. Alongside RAYE, ‘Tequila’ encompasses a bold dance beat underpinned by catchy pop tones that produce a sound designed to resonate on dancefloors across the globe.
In typical Europa style, ‘Tequila’ has a heavy bass line but also infuses a smoother sound with strong elements of sax throughout. This combined with vocals from one of UK pop music’s most exciting female talents, RAYE’s voice brings a strong sense of soul and melodic flow to the beats all married together to make something that is instantly catchy yet dancefloor cool.
Speaking of the single Jax said, "I like to make music that makes people happy and dance. So to achieve that I try to make the studio a fun environment. Cos if we aren’t dancing the song is probably sh*t. Often I’ll use Tequila as a replacement for coffee to break the ice and loosen up the vibe a bit. Raye and I did the same when we wrote the song “You Don’t Know Me”, We had a such a fun time that day and it started a beautiful family style friendship I have with all my collaborators. This time round I must admit the Tequila was flowing a bit more so we ended up writing a song about it. Which I love btw. It’s very natural and echoes how Martin, Raye and I felt at the time. So for me this song represents good times with my friends, not taking yourself too seriously, memorable nights out and tacos. LFG BABY”
‘Tequila’ is Jax Jones’ first release of 2020, but will be familiar to the tens of thousands of fans who caught Jax at FOMO Festival around Australia this summer. Continuing to break records and push boundaries, last year saw Jax’s debut album ‘Snacks’ gain gold certification in the UK, become one of the top 5 biggest selling debut albums, as well as being named the best-selling UK dance album of the year. A career continuing to reach dizzying new heights, the release of ‘Tequila’ follows six UK top 10 singles and eight consecutive top 20s, plus breakthrough hits in Australia with ‘Harder’ featuring Bebe Rexha and ‘This Is Real’ featuring Ella Henderson, festival favourite ‘House Work’, not to mention the multi-platinum smash ‘You Don’t Know Me’ with RAYE.
