Known for his entrancing tropical house style and remixing abilities, at only 23 years old the German DJ and Producer has quickly become a force to be reckoned with in Dance music. Now signed to Universal music, Jaehn first broke into the mainstream electronic scene with his international chart topping remix of OMI’s “Cheerleader” in 2015. Since then, he has gone on to release other chart topping hits such as his remix “Ain’t nobody (Loves me Better)” featuring Jasmine Thompson.
Signaling the upcoming arrival of the young producers newest LP, Jaehn’s latest hit song “Cool”, serves as a mirror into the authenticity crisis that plagues society. “Cool” presents a fun and upbeat track with an underlying message of importance; to be “cool” is to be authentic to your self. After all, considering the age of Felix Jaehn, it wouldn’t be far fetched to assume that the song serves as a testament to his own life as a young artist and the obstacles he’s had to overcome to remain authentic. Through utilizing the multi-platinum voice of Bassy and the dynamic bars delivered by Gucci Mane, Jaehn organizes a composition that gives listeners three different perspectives in the fight for authenticity.
Instrumentally, the track features a wealth of upbeat and tropical tones that are so typical of Jaehn, while seamlessly alternating into Bassy’s soulful voice and Gucci’s gritty, tough lyrics. Bassy’s vocal style and delivery compliment the playful bass line perfectly, and is promptly backed by a vibrant horn section. From the optimistic feel of the music, to the significance behind the message of the song, Jaehn delivers a song of substance and fluidity that you can’t help but dance to.
