(Released 6th August)
Basshunter is the ultimate bass creator and the world’s most in-demand commercial dance artist. He is involved in every aspect of his music from writing, producing and singing. With all tracks produced and written by Basshunter himself, it’s no wonder that he’s become one of the worlds most talked about and exciting dance stars. He has more than 2.2 million friends on Facebook, 35k Twitter followers (new account) and his YouTube figures on his video views are way over 700 Million worldwide!!
After signing a record deal with Warner Music in 2006, his first single ‘Boten Anna’ was an instant hit, securing the No.1 slot in eight European countries and making him the fastest selling artist in Sweden since Abba.
A thumping Euro dance smash, Basshunter re-worked ‘Boten Anna’ and recorded it in English, with the end result being released in January 2008 as ‘Now You’re Gone’. The track shot to No.1 in the UK where it remained for five consecutive weeks. It went on to become the biggest selling dance single of 2008 and has sold more than 400,000 copies in the UK, achieving gold record status. Swiftly followed by the massive selling #2 (for three weeks) smash ‘All I Ever Wanted’, Basshunter launched his debut album ‘Now You’re Gone’ in summer 2008 seeing it reach the # 1 spot and hitting Platinum status. The hits continued throughout the year with ‘Angel in the Night’, ‘I Miss You’ and ‘Walk on Water’.
Spending the first half of 2009 headlining the huge UK Dance Nation Arena Tour and writing his second UK album, Basshunter stormed back into the charts with ‘Every Morning’ in September 2009. The album ‘Bass Generation’ (Silver Sales Status) came soon after and Jonas toured the UK once again, taking his sell-out Bass Generation show on the road!
Basshunter’s profile sky rocketed with his legendary appearance on Celebrity Big Brother. Proving hugely popular with the shows viewers, Basshunter reached the final and finished in fourth place (best international Celeb)! Directly after this appearance Basshunter jetted off to LA to work with long time collaborator Alex Herron on the video to ‘Saturday’ – his most recent release. Signalling a different sound, ‘Saturday’ gave Basshunter another smash and saw him performing on the biggest shows on UK TV. In 2011 Basshunter focused on touring all over the world including: Russia, America, India, Italy, Canada, Mexico, Spain, Romania, Bulgaria, Poland, Sweden, Norway, UAE, to name a few and of course working on his new Album. Now in 2012 with a huge tour of North America planned in April, a second year running summer season in Majorca, a third album ready to be released in late 2012 and an amazing brand new single ready to be launched in June 2012 (video shot in LA with the same producer as Lady GAGA), the sky’s the limit for everyone’s favourite dance king!
