In a short period of time German producer Jonasu’s joyful blend of tropical house beats and an ear for an uplifting melody have established him as one of pop’s rising stars.
His songs, streamed millions of times, are international hits but much of his work is born from the streets of Amsterdam. Jonasu has called the Dutch capital home for over a decade after moving from his German hometown Mannheim to study music at the prestigious Conservatorium van Amsterdam. Jonasu cites the city as an influence on his sound for more than just his musical education. His music is inspired by the people and stories, both real and imagined, that he comes across on his daily bike roads across the city. “Everyone in Amsterdam cycles,” he says, explaining his unique creative process. “It’s a big influence on my life. In 20 minutes I can come up with a new melody or lyrical concept. Often I’ll arrive in the studio and have ideas ready to go.”
In addition to making his own music, Jonasu has written with, and produced for, other artists including Sam Feldt, multi-platinum selling single Post Malone (feat. RANI) and Alok & Dynoro's smash single On & On. He’s spent time recording in London, Stockholm, Berlin and L.A.
