Since being signed to Tiësto’s label and Black Hole Records, vocalist, DJ and producer JES is exactly what Trance and the world of EDM needs. With only two female DJ’s (three if you count Krewella) on DJ Mag’s Top 100 it has never been more clear that women are a forgotten species in the male-dominated and newly commercial world of electronic music. After a successful run on the Insomniac-promoted ATB Live Tour, JES is next up on the female DJ/ producer circuit.
Much to surprise, JES has already performed on all six (life-breeding) continents, The Beijing Summer Olympics, collaborated with Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Oakenfold, Kaskade, BT, Richard Durand and Cosmic Gate, collected awards from The Dance Music Awards at Miami’s WMC, The International Songwriting Competition ‘08’ 09 and ‘10 and topped Billboard’s “Most Played Dance Songs of the Decade” chart (2000-2010). She’s played the Bacardi Festival (Lebanon), Fresh (Malta), World Electronic Music Festival (Toronto), Escape In The Park (United Kingdom), Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, and Red Rocks Amphitheatre (Denver); A stellar resume to aide her mounting success.
Now with power-promoter, Insomniac, backing her, her latest album Unleash The Beat Volume 2 has raised the attention of trance-lovers all over Beatport. Her upcoming contributions are highly anticipated, the snowball effect continues to grow and her recognition on outlets such as Pandora increases by the day. It looks like there’s new female talent on the break.
