"Best Day Ever": Rising Hitmaker JAX JONES Recalled The Moment CALVIN HARRIS Praised His Music
Karen Jane Ng
Things are constantly looking bright for UK’s up-and-coming singer-producer Jax Jones following his nonstop release of bangers including 2017’s “Instruction” – yep, that one that features Demi Lovato.
He’s actually been your homie on the dance floor and he's made sure that you dance to his catchy beats. "I always make sure I can play it in the club so it needs to have a great bass line," Jax said of his music. "... then you feel a kick in your chest."
Besides the samba-infused “Instruction”, Jax (real name Timucin Fabian Kwong Wah Aluo) came in strong into the house music scene as co-producer of The Vamps’ “Can We Dance” and has released singles “You Don’t Know Me” (ft. English singer Raye) and the most recently “Breathe” (ft. Ina Wroldsen). The latter has been so far one of this year’s biggest selling singles (via NME). He has already scored a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording in 2014 for his Duke Dumont’s collab “I Got U”.

Jax has been lucky to work with a number of names in the industry. In fact, we’ll hear new ones with Ellie Goulding and Tove Lo once his full-length album comes out in September. Nonetheless, the list of his dream collaborations goes on.
"I'd love to work with people such as Camila Cabello, and you know so many talented artists out there," Jax revealed. "I'd love to do a song with Drake. His voice is incredible."
Turning his little beats into a winning streak of dance hits, Jax look up to many people for inspiration, one of which is Calvin Harris. "(He's) just incredibly consistent over the years and had worldwide domination, something I aspire too."
They still haven’t met personally but one message from the “Slide” singer already made up Jax’s ‘best day ever’! "He sent me a DM one time on Instagram," Jax shared. "Calvin Harris said he likes my music. It was the best day ever!"
"Now, my dream is to be consistent, to keep growing and also to use the kind of influence that I'm trying to develop and just, you know, get more love."
