Germany's Felix Jaehn is a DJ, producer, and remixer with a bent toward atmospheric yet still pop-oriented deep house. Born in Hamburg in 1994, Jaehn studied classical violin in his youth before turning his attention to DJing in his teens. Around 2011, he briefly attended London's Point Blank Music College before returning to Hamburg. After reestablishing himself in Hamburg, Jaehn released several well-received singles, including 2014's "Dance with Me" featuring Thallie Ann Seenyen and 2014's "Shine" with Freddy Verano and Linying. However, it was his 2015 remix of OMI's "Cheerleader" that grabbed the public's attention. A catchy, reggae-infused dance hit, "Cheerleader" topped the charts across Europe and reached the number three spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. That same year, Jaehn earned yet another European hit with his remix of vocalist Jasmine Thompson's song "Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better)," a cover of Rufus & Chaka Khan's "Ain't Nobody."
In 2016, Jaehn issued a handful of notable singles, including "Can't Go Home" with Steve Aoki and Adam Lambert and "Bonfire" with ALMA. By 2017, the latter track had been streamed nearly 100,000 times, just as Jaehn issued "Dance with Me" (featuring Thallie Ann Seenyen) and "Hot2Touch" (with Hight and Alex Aiono). 2018 saw Jaehn put out his debut full-length effort, I, via Polydor. It was preceded by the single "Like a Riddle," featuring Hearts & Colors and Adam Trigger. The following year, he teamed up with English singer/songwriter Calum Scott for the single "Love on Myself." ~ Matt Collar, Rovi
