Dutch DJ and producer Jengi has steadily built an image as one of dance music’s most high potential new up-and-comers. In 2022, Jengi officially established himself on a global scale with the immensely infectious Bel Mercy. Initially picked up by Diplo through his Mad Decent imprint, footage of the head honcho playing the track soon went viral, amassing millions of views. Since its December 2022 release on Mad Decent and FFRR, Bel Mercy has seen astonishing success with almost 30 million streams within the first 2 months, as well as a mind-blowing 700+ million views on TikTok and counting. Aside from charting in Jengi’s native the Netherlands, Bel Mercy even entered the British top charts. Jengi currently has garnered 6 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
Jengi is internationally recognised for his capacities both as a DJ as well as a producer. First gaining traction through his Colors EP, followed by Sprinkles, Rare and Zombies, Jengi’s production skills soon caught the attention of a wide variety of key figures in the industry. His original works were soon succeeded by collaborations with Dutch hip-hop heavyweights FS Green and Bizzey on their House of Pablo bootleg EP, as well as remix work for Bazzi’s viral hit Mine and soon to be followed by a remix of Sam Gellaitry’s Assumptions. With support from dance music’s brightest stars, from Fred Again.., Skrillex and Four Tet to Diplo, James Hype, Solomun and Tiesto, the 2023 season is looking like it will be a massive leap in the young artist’s career.
Jengi is slated to perform at some of the world’s biggest stages, including potentially the biggest of them all, Tomorrowland.
