e is one of the most popular DJs in the world, but Jonas Blue says the pressures of the job make it difficult for him to find a girlfriend.
The Essex newcomer stormed the scene in 2015 with his remix of Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car and is currently one of the most streamed DJs in the world. But he told the Standard, “I’m single and the lifestyle is definitely taking its toll on this side of your life. It is definitely hard to have relationships.
“When your life is moving this fast, people generally want answers on messenger apps and sometimes I don’t get in touch with people for two or three weeks. It’s mainly how busy my life is, but I do my best. I would like to find someone. “

“But in general I think I’m good at judging characters – you have to be a DJ to read the crowd and understand their mood. You can use it to talk a lot of people out of it. I see it that way. “
The star said he had just bought himself a house in Essex but cautioned other potential DJs not to go into the industry for the money.
He said, “I was never there for the money. It’s about passion for music. I’ve been working since I was 11 and when it broke for me at 26 I was working with virtually no money.
“Your focus cannot be on money. It will take many, many years to see any returns in the industry today. You just have to work harder than everyone else. “
Blues Party today included Game Of Thrones star Kit Harington, boxer David Haye and former Saturdays singer Vanessa White.
