Kicking off a summer filled with festival runs and tour dates, Blasterjaxx, Prezioso, and GRY join forces for plucky reimagining of viral children’s song Coconut via Spinnin’ Records.
After meeting via mutual friends in 2010, Thom Jongkind and Idir Makhlaf of Blasterjaxx hit the international charts in 2013 with smash hit single Faith, which landed no.1 in Sweden and South Africa, reached Double Platinum status, and subsequently led the duo to winning the IDMA Award for Best Worldwide Breakthrough Act and landing a spot on the coveted DJ Mag Top 100 list.
Blasterjaxx have since taken the EDM world by storm in just a few years, performing across festivals like Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival and more and collaborating with the likes of Armin Van Buuren, Hardwell, Timmy Trumpet, Hollywood Undead, W&W, and more. Their collaboration with Timmy Trumpet Narco has collected over 63M Spotify streams and has accompanied baseball team The Mets’ closer Edwin Diaz on his gameday walkout since 2018.
Meanwhile, DJ and producer Giorgio Prezioso has remained on the forefront of the dance music sphere since the 90s, first gathering acclaim for his 2015 dance version of 80s hit The Riddle and further cementing his name with collaboration with Gabry Ponte and Lum!x Thunder, which currently sits at over 401M Spotify streams and was certified Platinum and Gold across the globe. The Italian native has ascended exponentially since his teenage days winning DJ competitions, releasing on labels like Island Records, Warner Music Germany and Sony Music Germany and collaborating with heavyweights like Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, R3HAB, and Vini Vici.
GRY is a multi-genre Turkish and British producer and DJ known for tapping into elements of trap, D&B, and old-school dubstep for transcendent creations that captivate audiences with a flow of rave, hip-hop, and spirit-altering grooves. First cultivating a music career organising underground parties in London’s abandoned warehouses, the rising star has since released singles like A Place In The Dark with Klaas and In Your Sleep, which have amassed over 1M Spotify streams respectively.
The formidable collection of musicians now unite for a powerful juggernaut. Inspired by 2016 viral Swedish children’s song I’m A Coconut by Coconut Hen that explored gender inclusivity with a catchy earworm melody, Coconut features monumental synth stabs, galloping basslines, and a wistful and infectious chant that you won’t get out of your head.
