Dance music legend Axwell has delivered a bass-heavy remix of Europa’s debut single ‘All Day And Night’.
The Swedish icon shifts the emphasis of the original, ramping up the bass, adding a drop and giving it his trademark progressive feel. A collaboration between two internationally-renowned favorites, Martin Solveig and Jax Jones, Europa delivered a chart-ready anthem with ‘All Day And Night’ – a track that has clocked up 14 million YouTube hits and 60 million Spotify streams since its May release.
Born out of mutual admiration and cemented by a hug given by Martin after Jax’s set in Ibiza, the collab has been a long time coming. However, it was only after Solveig made the Eurostar trip to Jax’s London studio that they realized that they had something special and the spirit of Europa started to take shape.
“A huge common point for us is that we want people to have fun,” the pair explain. “Europa has allowed both of us to step out from what everybody else might consider reasonable. Music doesn’t have to be reasonable. You might even say it shouldn’t be.”
Playing at countless festivals this summer, including Tomorrowland and SW4, Martin Solveig continues to cement his status as one of dance music’s most recognizable figures. Previously bringing his ‘My House’ event series to various venues, including his own ADE showcase and a Pacha Ibiza residency, Martin is best known for huge hits ‘Intoxicated’, ‘Do It Right’, ‘Places’, ‘All Stars’, and as recently as last summer with ‘My Love’.
The announcement of Europa follows an impressive start to 2019 for London’s Jax Jones. A second BRIT Award nomination in a row came in the wake of his latest Top 10 collaboration – the groove-fuelled earworm ‘Play’ featuring Years & Years. If this wasn’t enough, he played his biggest headline show to date at London’s Roundhouse in April, before heading to America for a landmark nine-date tour. His summer schedule includes Kendal Calling, SW4 and Hï Ibiza for David Guetta’s F*** ME I’M FAMOUS! residency.
What started out as a collaborative exploration between two friends has grown into a lauded musical project that has dance music fans on the edge of their seats. The fact that someone of Axwell’s stature has stepped up onto remix duties is a testament to this.
