After smashing the charts with the worldwide success of his hit single You Don’t Know Me, featuring BBC Sound of 2017 nominee Raye, multi-talented songwriter and producer Jax Jones is looking to follow up his chart stardom with his new single Instruction.
Undoubtedly Jax biggest success to date, You Don’t Know Me has had over 275 million streams globally and rising, not to mention having gone three times Platinum in The Netherlands, twice Platinum in Australia, Ireland, Sweden, Platinum in Norway, UK, Italy and Gold in Belgium, France, Germany, as well as netting over 6.3m total Shazams, at one point making it the #1 spot on Shazam globally.
“Nothing says summer to me more than Notting Hill Carnival,” Jax said of his new single Instruction. “That was the mental image I used throughout the making of this song. I took the idea to my good friend MNEK and the song came together really quickly. The DJ is the controller of the dance floor and lyrically, I wanted to reflect that; hence why we’re giving instructions!”
Jax was no stranger to success prior to ‘You Don’t Know Me’, having been the writer and co-producer on Duke Dumont’s huge international 2014 hit ‘I Got U’, which resulted in his first UK No. 1. In addition to this, Jones’ talents have seen him producing remixes for the likes of Charli XCX, Lil Yachty, Missy Elliot and Pharrell.
Following the release of his new dance floor filler, Jax has a busy summer ahead of him with numerous festival performances ahead of him. For a full list of his appearances, check below.
