Danish DJ and producer Martin Jensen scored one of the biggest hits of 2017 with the smash ‘Solo Dance’, and the track propelled the Dane to the top of both the charts and festival lineups all over the world. The touring brought him even closer to his fans – a growing base of 2.5 million dedicated followers on social media. Now he’s bringing them along musically for the next step in his career.
Everybody who has followed Martin Jensen for a while knows just how much he wants to engage his audience, both musically and personally. Now he’s gone the unconventional route of including them on his latest single ‘Wait’.
“I’ve always got my fans and their reaction in the back of my mind when I’m making music, but this time I thought they should play a more prominent part in my production”, he explains.
“We launched a competition and asked fans to send in videos of themselves singing the pre-chorus to the song, not knowing what to expect at all, and we were pretty nervous about it.
Luckily it turns out the average Martin Jensen fan is a great singer and I can barely wait to see my fans reactions to it. I owe them a lot, and this is a way for me to thank them”.
His fans are not the only ones lending their voices to ‘Wait’; the American act Loote, best known for their irresistible ‘High Without Your Love’, is also a big part of the new Martin Jensen hit. The New York-based duo originally approached him for a remix, but Martin fell in love with Loote-singer Emma’s voice and suggested they join him on his next single instead – and it worked out wonderfully:
“Emma’s voice is just something else, and with my fans on the pre-chorus and Emma on the hook… I don’t think I could have asked for better vocals on any track”.
The resulting track is, quite simply, a sure shot Martin Jensen-production – happy and energetic, engaging and with a big chorus.
“I work hard, every single day to improve and even though I’m thrilled with the success of ‘Solo Dance’, I still want to reach even more people and make better tracks”, the DJ explains.
“I can’t wait to see how the world responds to ‘Wait’. Hopefully, they’ll be as enthusiastic about it as I am”.
