“Beat of my heart”, as well as the follow up singles “Stay” and “Where I belong” made it to the playlists of several radio stations in Sweden and in Spain. “Beat of my heart” was chosen Hot Hit of the Week on Swedish Cityradion and stayed on A-rotation for several weeks. The music is also playing on dancefloors in London, New York, Melbourne and Stockholm.
The single “Point of no return” from 2010 had music critics (FizzyPop and Scandipop) praising it before it was even released. The song was premiered on the American radio show “The Morning Jolt with Larry Flick” aired from New York City, which later on resulted in a live interview with the radio show host.
Now, in 2012, Jonas Oakland takes on Ankie Bagger’s ‘Where Were You Last Night’ – a song which was a staple on Sweden’s radios and dancefloors in the late 80′s and early 90′s. Jonas’ version of the song has already made it to #10 on the Swedish iTunes Dance Chart.
Jonas has taken the song and given it a makeover for 2011′s club scene. The faux stadium rock sound of the original, has been replaced by harder and darker electro house beats and a soaring pop synth.
This is Jonas Oakland’s fifth single. His penchant for producing pop friendly dance music, has in the past drawn comparisons with BWO, Darren Hayes, and Simon Curtis. With ‘Where Were You Last Night’, Jonas intends to open a new era for his music, and it will be the first of four singles released in 2012 – all four which will end up exisiting as the ‘What Happens On The Dancefloor’ EP.
Jonas Oakland lives in Stockholm, Sweden.
