oakland_what_happensWHAT HAPPENS ON THE DANCEFLOOR Point

“What Happens on the Dancefloor” is a dancepop track heavy on synth hooks and instant melodies, calling for a night out in the club.
“My idea was to create a more rough sound, like Ke$ha’s ‘Blow’ or Lady Gaga’s ‘Sheiße’, something I haven’t done before. The song is about letting loose and not caring about the consequences. It’s like a free haven where everything goes and when all is back to normal you all have this pact that whatever happened out there, stays out there“, Jonas Oakland explains.

WHO’S THAT BOY Point

With a mix of darker electro beats, synths and guitars, it manifests what club music is all about.

 

WHERE WERE YOU LAST NIGHT Point

Jonas Oakland, rejuvenates an 80′s classic from his native country’s pop legacy. He’s taken 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. And a song which has surprisingly never been updated until now.
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 The faux stadium rock sound of the original, has been replaced by harder and darker electro house beats and a soaring pop synth.

 

WHERE I BELONG (Amitai Bar-Lavi Remix) Point

Scandipop review: “He’s worked together with trance producer Amitai Bar-Lavi, to concoct something of a more electro-fied dance sound, to bridge the gap between the old, and the forthcoming new. What they’ve come out with is one of those exciting dance tracks that manages to inject both atmosphere and electricity onto the dancefloor, with plenty of hushed and tantalising capellas, and big clubland instrumentals.”

POINT OF NO RETURN Point

FizzyPop review
: “It’s all about taking that final tentative step into something risky and unknown and Jonas delivers an edgier vocal than on the more euphoric BOMH.”
Scandipop review: “Point Of No Return sees Jonas play around with more electro beats, and as a result, it’s got a mesmerizing and industrial electro riff going all the way through as a dominant bassline.”
