About DONNA SUMMER:
Maintaining an unbroken string of hits throughout the 70s and 80s, most of which she wrote, Donna Summer (1948-2012) holds the record for most consecutive double albums to hit #1 on the Billboard charts (three) and is the first woman to have four #1 singles in a twelve-month period, three as a solo artist and one as a duo with Barbra Streisand. A five-time Grammy Award-winner, she was the first artist to win the Grammy for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female (1979, “Hot Stuff”), as well as the first-ever recipient of the Grammy for Best Dance Recording (1997, “Carry On”). She held six American Music Awards, three consecutive #1 platinum double albums (she’s the only artist, male or female, ever to accomplish this), 11 gold albums, four #1 singles, 2 platinum singles, and 12 gold singles. Donna was also the first female artist to have a #1 single and #1 album on the Billboard charts simultaneously (“MacArthur Park” and Live & More, 1978), a feat she also repeated six months later (“Hot Stuff” and Bad Girls, 1979). She has charted 21 #1 hits on the Billboard Disco/Dance charts over a period of 25 years, a milestone solidifying her as THE Queen of Dance. In 2004, she became one of the first inductees, as both an Artist Inductee and a Record Inductee (for 1977′s “I Feel Love”) into the Dance Music Hall of Fame in New York City. In 2013, Donna Summer was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It is estimated that Ms. Summer has sold more than 130 million records worldwide.
“Follow Me” was Sebjak’s first release on Positiva Records. Following support for the original Mix from Andi Durrant (Capital FM, U.K.), among others, and charting on the Music Week Cool Cuts and the DMC Buzz Chart, this Summer saw the release of the new vocal version. “Follow Me”’s epic irresistible vocals, massive hooks, delicate keys and emotive chord play made it a definitive Summer anthem. Now ‘Follow Me’ is getting the remix treatment from a diverse lineup of talent, with Gregori Klosman, DEVolution, Mike Hawkins and Jerry Rekonius all putting their own spin on the original.
Having watched the rise of his fellow countrymen, Sebastian Jak set out to become the next success story in Sweden’s already impressive dance music history. By 2006, Sebjak as he was now known started to produce music of his own. Having pricked the ears of the likes of Steve Angello, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso with his fresh and energetic approach to production, Sebjak was asked to remix for the world-acclaimed Size Records with fellow producer AN21.
His stock rose immediately and Sebjak began to pull in the attention from the biggest DJs and producers in the world. Erick Morillo and his Subliminal label were next to release the young Swedish producer, unleashing his collaboration with Richard Grey, ‘Pump Up The Volume.’ David Guetta and Tiesto were just two of the single’s many supporters.
Remixes have also seen the 24 year old Swede add his deft touch to Laidback Luke, Arno Cost and Norman Doray’s hit, ‘Trilogy’ which was released on Luke’s own imprint Mixmash, in addition to Swiss Official vs. Kings Of Tomorrow ‘Changes’ which saw another release on Size Records. Sebjak was also responsible for a killer remix of Mogui’s ‘We Want Your Soul’ which went on to be bootlegged by Swedish House Mafia for their famous hit ‘Leave The World Behind,’ the track they decided to close their Masquerade Motel residency in Miami 2011 with.
Sebjak is a regular behind the decks in clubs around the globe. From England to France, USA, Germany, Israel, Swiss, Dominican Republic, Morocco, Serbia and Brazil, which has become his favourite place to tour, Sebjak has rocked them all. Standout gigs have included LIV in Miami, Subliminal Sessions at Arkadia and an incredible performance at Summerburst in Stockholm in front of 12,000 people. When not out on the road solo, he can spotted with any other top name from Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell, AN21 Max Vangeli, Bob Sinclar, Norman Doray, Arno Cost, Laidback Luke, Moguai, David Tort, Avicii, David Guetta, John Dalhbäck, Eric Prydz and beyond.
After taking the dance music community by storm with his internationally recognized hits ‘Babylon,’ ‘Sirius,’ and ‘Ivory,’ Congorock unveils an all-star lineup of remixes for his latest release on Ultra Music including Laidback Luke, The Bloody Beetroots, Mumbai Science and NT89.
