Jonas von der Fehr has had a whirlwind 2012; a year which has put him on the map as a producer & DJ star of years to come. Since bursting onto the scene in 2009 with club bomb ’Meow’ on Ministry of Sound, Fehrplay’s sounds has matured with a new sophisticated funk ever present, but whilst still maintaining his trademark, epic cinematic film score-esque breakdowns.
In early 2012, the 24 year old Norwegian signed to Eric Prydz’s legendary Pryda Friends label. It was a decision that would elevate his career to new heights as he joined the prestigious roster, which has featured some goliaths of dance music including Axwell, Paolo Mojo, Felix Da Housecat and Sebastien Leger.
As well as new break through tracks and remixes this year, such as “Incognito”, his summer smash “Nightride” and his recent remix of Eric Prydz “Every Day”, he has come into his own as top flight DJ. This summer saw his play multiple dates in Ibiza, as well as the UK festivals, SW4 and Creamfields and make his UK super club debut at Ministry of Sound for the legendary Gallery nights along side Arty.
His music is receiving amazing support from a who’s who of dance music, with regular plays on Pete Tong’s legendary BBC Radio 1 show, and in the sets of everyone from Prydz, to Avicii.
2013 is already set to see the continued success with further singles on Pryda and Above & Beyond’s legendary Anjuna Imprint.
With his fantastic tune selection and flawless mixing skills. It is easy to see why Prydz picked Fehrplay as his one to watch.
