Everybody knows Felix Jaehn for his ubiquitous remix of Omi's "Cheerleader," but the young German DJ's discography has grown significantly since that hit in 2014 and 2015. With those extra songs to bolster his sets, he is hitting the road for a brief North American club tour. To support the tour, he has given us a playlist of songs he listens to while on tour, but won't necessarily play out. It includes tracks from Bruno Mars, LL Cool J, The Chainsmokers, Julia Michaels and others.
There is a bit of pop, dance and even some rap and r&b on the playlist. Felix Jaehn will pump out hours of soothing house music during his sets, but this is a way to get a look at some of the songs that he digging right now and in the case of "Loungin (Who do Ya Luv)," a classic he has liked for a while. Read on for the playlist and a quick reason why he chose each song.
1. The Weeknd - Rockin'
I am such a big fan of The Weeknd!
2. Alina Baraz, Khalid - Electric
I love both, Alina Baraz and Khalid. It’s great having them combined on one record. Fun fact: I remixed “Fantasy" by Alina Baraz a while ago.
3. Allan Rayman, Jessie Reyez - Repeat
When touring I spend a lot of time waiting at airports. The vibe of this song is both chilled and motivating. Keeps me going!
4. The Chainsmokers - Paris
The Chainsmokers have recently been changing the game in dance music. Yet another great song!
5. Dennis Kruissen - Falling in Love
I have known Dennis for a while now. I really like is new style. This song is a cool production you need to check out!
6. Bruno Mars - That's What I Like
Bruno Mars is on repeat right now! I love his new album. "That’s What I Like" is one of many amazing new songs.
7. Dooqu, Luke Cusato - Better Withu
Dooqu is my latest discovery. He is a sick upcoming artist with a fresh sound.
8. Julia Michaels - Issues
This is by far one of the best songs released in 2017 until now!
9. LL Cool J - Loungin (Who Do Ya Luv) Remix
A super chilled classic!
10. Ed Sheeran - Castle On The Hill
I am literally really excited about Ed Sheerans new music! Love this one. Reminds me of home! It’s a great song to end my 'North America Tour 2017‘ with next week! And also this playlist…
