This is the first time I’ve heard Mishegas music, which isn’t a surprise since it’s only his second release, but “Home” is one of the coolest originals I’ve heard in a long time.

15_08_FelixJaehn0222_FINAL2

Felix Jaehn has quickly become one of our favorite producers in the game right now. The German wunderkind bust down the door in the early months of 2015 with his incredible remix of OMI’s “Cheerleader” that has not only dominated the streaming world – with over 500 million streams already – but also the radio airwaves. It became one of the most ubiquitous tropical house anthems of the year, as everyone across the country instantly recognizes the lyrics, “Oh I think I found myself a cheerleader,” layered over the sun-soaked percussion that has come to define Felix Jaehn’s music. In only a couple of years, Felix Jaehn has managed to accomplish what many artists strive to achieve in their entire lifetimes – countless chart-topping releases, headlining sets around the world, and even a collaboration with Steve Aoki and Adam Lambert.

In honor of Felix Jaehn’s massive 2015, and even bigger 2016, we’ve put together a list of his Greatest Hits.

First up is “I Do,” one of Felix Jaehn’s first tracks that started it all for him. “I Do” shows off Felix’s prowess in the studio with expertly layered synths bolstered by a warm, bubbling bassline.

“Eagle Eyes” was Felix Jaehn’s first release on Spinnin’ Deep, which cemented his reputation as a talented up-and-comer worth paying attention.

Felix’s remix of Alian Baraz and Galimatias’ “Fantasy” was the perfect summertime anthem for 2015, as Alina Baraz’s smooth vocals was the perfect balance to the sun-kissed production.

In 2015, no track was as big as Felix’s remix of “Cheerleader.” It topped the charts in over 55 countries and really helped Felix’s career take off.

Lastly, Felix really solidified himself as one of melodic house’s stars with his follow-up release to his remix of “Cheerleader.” Teaming up with Jasmine Thompson, Felix remade Rufus and Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody” into a modern-day anthem.
