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.

image1 (4)

Producer/DJ EDX receives two EMPO Awards for Best Indie Dance / Nu Disco Artist and Best Remix of the Year with his “Indian Summer” remix of Sam Feldt’s “Show Me Love.”

In 2015, EDX was responsible for some of the biggest tracks of the year, including his original, “Belong,” “Revered,” and his “Ibiza Sunrise” remix of Robin Schulz’s “Sugar,” that went on to receive gold and platinum certifications in various countries. As he moved into the new year, EDX was recognized as the #1 top charting artist on Beatport, beating out everyone from Tiesto to Maceo Plex, while also making waves with his last single, “Missing.” Recently, he has continued to build his profile with his No Xcuses vs. Enormous Tunes Bus Tour that was a resounding success, and he enjoyed a fruitful Miami Music Week, which included his biggest No Xcuses party yet that featured The Magician, Bakermat, Sander Kleinenberg, and more.

As a humble artist, EDX continues to elevate his career year after year, and these two wins at Mexico’s electronic music awards reaffirm his ranking in the upper echelon of dance music talent around the world. The Swiss-based star is gearing up for a summer that is packed to the brim with tour dates around the world, including his coveted 10-date No Xcuses residency at Privilege Ibiza, a No Xcuses stage takeover at Canada’s Escapade Music festival, World Club Dome in Germany, and many more. The season will also see EDX release a grip of new music to bolster his 2016 catalog further after release “Missing” earlier this year.

Mr. Carmack – Pay For What (Alexander Lewis Flip)

This remix is insane! Alexander Lewis went so hard on this remix that Carmack himself gave it the proper social media love it deserved. While Alexander Lewis has already established himself in the trap scene as an amazing producer, on this track he shows off a new set of skills by laying down a major trombone top line for the drop that takes the “Pay For What” remix to the next level and easily makes it the best one in the books. Listen and download below!
