Jonas Blue has remixed Needin' U!


Every house music fanatic and dance floor lover recognises the unmistakeable samples of The Chi-Lites' ‘My First Mistake’ and Rare Pleasure's ‘Let Me Down Easy’ in David Morales' classic dance anthem, 'Needin' U'. Now, 24 years since the song's original release, we're pleased to announce that multi-platinum global hitmaker, Jonas Blue, has remixed 'Needin' U' into an epic hit for summer 2022. Stream and download here.


Produced during the pandemic with approval from Morales himself, Jonas Blue has refreshed this timeless classic with new beats and a thumping bassline, while still retaining the true essence of the original. Having started to play his remix out to worldwide audiences and receiving an unprecedented reaction, the story of this remix somewhat parallels that of the original. Back in the 90s, Morales never intended to release his early rendition of 'Needin' U'. But following a huge reaction, it was dropped on Azuli Records and reached No. 8 in the UK singles chart and No. 1 in the Billboard Dance charts.

Speaking about his decision to remix such an almighty anthem, Jonas Blue said:


“David Morales has always been a big inspiration for me. I always wanted to remix his track 'Needin’ U' and after the pandemic and with the world starting to return to the clubs and dance scene it felt like the right time to bring a fresh take on this monster of a dance floor classic. I’ve been playing it out for a while now and am so hyped to finally release it just in time for summer.”


Having already made a name for himself too as a legendary DJ and producer, Jonas Blue has amassed more than 15 billion global streams, 75 million single sales and 130 Platinum certifications. He has collaborated with a star-studded cast of artists that includes Becky Hill, Rita Ora, Tiësto, MK, Sevenn, R3HAB, RAYE and more. Alongside his army of hits, Blue has also released stellar remixes for the likes of Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber, Ellie Goulding, Regard, Madison Beer, Alok and many more. His stacked 2022 touring schedule includes a residency in Las Vegas, festival performances inc Fuji Rock and shows in Ibiza, across the U.S, Europe and beyond.

Having already been added to Capital Dance's radio playlist, 'Needin' U (Jonas Blue Remix)' is guaranteed to become a 2022 summer scorcher and share the song with a whole new generation of house music lovers. Stream and download the full single here.
