Jan Blomqvist & Malou Drop Gorgeous Melodic Single, “Alone”
Multifaceted German producer, musician, live performer, and composer Jan Blomqvist enlists rising Hamburg-based songstress Malou on “Alone,” his latest contribution to longtime label Armada. The track doubles as Blomqvist’s first original release of the year, arriving on the heels of his recent 3-track EP Carry On and Malou’s third, following a highly-lauded collaboration with Dubdogz and VINAI, “I Don’t Mind (ft. Selva)” and “Love Like We’re Dying” with Scorz. “Alone” is a stunning slice of indietronica that meshes Malou’s breathtaking melodies, vocals, and lyrics with Blomqvist’s driving electronic production.
Through his signature fusion of powerful electronic music elements, soft instrumental riffs, and reflective toplines, Jan Blomqvist has become a staple name in “chill” playlists across the globe. His distinct brand of deep house and tech has caught the attention of powerful players in electronic music, including Ben Böhmer, Oliver Koletzki, and Mako, and even landed him the stamp of approval from the legendary Rolling Stones for his “Sympathy For The Devil” rework, “Synth For The Devil.” Beyond his remixes, Blomqvist’s work has generated a cult following of fans who travel across the world to catch his live sets. Similar to Monolink, RÜFÜS DU SOL, and HVOB, his performances showcase his club-friendly electronic compositions and remixes live, creating an intimate setting that amplifies the beauty of his work. His latest release, “Alone,” is yet another meticulously crafted record that sees him veer into the melodic house & techno space.
“I wrote it in LA when I was feeling super alone! I have amazing friends I have my family but when you travel so much you still feel alone sometimes. I realized that this is okay everyone in a while feels alone. It was helpful for me to just let the feeling be and to feel that way. Therefore I felt even more grateful for what I’ve got 🙂 “– Malou
