Rising Danish DJ and producer Martin Jensen has released his new track ‘Wait‘ ft. American pop-duo Loote – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
A sure shot Martin Jensen song, sampling his own fans and turning it into much more than just a gimmick, ‘Wait’ is going to be big!
Raised in a small town in rural Jutland in Denmark, working in a company selling agricultural machines while running his own mobile DJ-company, Martin Jensen never seemed destined for the big festival stages, main rooms or Top 40 charts. But oh, how quickly things changed for the young Dane.
After years of DJing, Martin came to the spotlight with the track ‘Sí’, sampling the voice of Real Madrid and Portugal superstar footballer Cristiano Ronaldo. Just hours after posting the bouncy, party anthem to his own Facebook-page it went viral, and launched him as “one to watch”.
This feature did not go unnoticed by Danish label disco:wax who found a raw talent to work with and develop, and even though they believed in the project, no-one could anticipate the extraordinary success waiting to happen when Martin Jensen released a new single in November 2016.
‘Solo Dance‘ did well from the get-go, and embraced by his core fans it started racking up streams and plays almost immediately. As 2016 became 2017 the track continued to gather momentum, and six months later it was undeniably one of the biggest tracks of the year. A jaw-dropping 317 million streams worldwide, Platinum status in a number of countries and over 3 million followers on social media propelled Martin Jensen onto the top lists of Spotify worldwide.
It’s also given the producer – who’s still a DJ at heart – the opportunity to reach even more people, whether it’s big stages in Asia, sweaty main rooms or a jam-packed Wembley Stadium at Capital FM’s Summer Ball, Martin Jensen always connects with the crowds.
In July, he even fulfilled a lifelong dream when he climbed onto the mainstage at the biggest and most important EDM festival in the world, Tomorrowland. At that moment it became apparent – he’d come a long way from being a small town Jutland-DJ.
He might have come from nowhere, but Martin Jensen is definitely going somewhere!
