For over a year now, Jax Jones has had his fair share of consecutive UK chart climbers. From “House Work” with MNEK and Mike Dunn to the RAYE-assisted “You Don’t Know Me” to the undeniable “Instruction” with Demi Lovato and Stefflon Don, he’s been an unstoppable dance force that’s solidified himself to be far more than a one-hit wonder.
His latest “Breathe” featuring “How Deep Is Your Love” Norwegian hit-maker Ina Wroldsen hits a fine middle ground between the talented UK producer’s universally cleansed dance etiquette and his very own uplifting blend of melodic house music.
“You’re on my mind like a song that I can’t escape/ I don’t know how many da-da-dums I can take/ I need to know if you’re feeling, feeling the same/ Is it too late?,” Ina ponders before digging deeper on the thumping, euphoric chorus: “But now it’s hard to breathe/ I’m not in love, it’s just a game we do/ I tell myself I’m not that into you/ But I don’t wanna sleep, it’s quarter after 3.”
Those irresistible chants throughout (“Dum-dum-da-da-da-da“) and that hazy trip of a chorus with its seductive, late night pulses. A winner from the very first play – GET INTO IT!
