Dance music vixen, JES, proves why her impeccable artistry remains timeless, legendary and among¬†the¬†elite with Unleash the Beat Vol. 3.¬†
From singing and songwriting to producing and DJing, New York City born -¬†Los Angeles based JES does it all.¬†She has¬†worked with longtime tastemakers and powerhouses like COSMIC GATE, FERRY CORSTEN, BT and TIESTO - just to name a few - providing vocals on multiple No. 1¬†chart topping¬†tracks; many of which have become indicative of dance music. Her original singles have been¬†remixed by industry greats such as KASKADE, ABOVE & BEYOND, ARMIN VAN BUUREN and many more, whom have all incorporated her music into their live sets and I know you have heard. JES has performed¬†all over the world as support for the likes of ATB in addition to her own widely successful tours as a solo artist. She might as well be dubbed official Dance Music Barbie because today she celebrates yet another feat with the highly anticipated release of her latest album¬†Unleash the Beat Vol. 3.¬†
Listen to¬†Unleash the Beat Vol. 3¬†teaser:
I have had the privilege of seeing JES perform live twice in my lifetime, once a few years back and more recently in July of 2014, where I was graced with the opportunity of interviewing her at Exchange LA. This lady not only kicks major booty¬†behind the decks, but she also sings live while dancing all across the stage and sounds as majestic live as she does on her album. She is a genuine spirit whose passion for what she does radiates through her high energy, kindness and love for her fans.
While her¬†creativity and versatility are attributes that make JES timeless, her¬†lack of fear¬†for what is to come is the characteristic that allows JES¬†to continue taking the future of dance music into her own hands and shaping¬†it into¬†what we know it as today.
As a singer-songwriter interested in making my¬†own mark in the electronic scene, JES sits¬†at the peak¬†of my biggest musical inspirations¬†list. She is a pivotal influence and role model. A true inspiration to many female artists within the dance music community. Her continuous success¬†demonstrates how strong and groundbreaking a woman's presence can be in the industry.

There is no doubt JES¬†has¬†seen decades of triumph¬†throughout her career, and that is why she has rightfully earned this week's #WCW accolade.
‚ÄúMusic has been a big part of my life for so long it‚Äôs hard to imagine a day without it. It‚Äôs always been about being true to yourself, and that honesty will resonate with somebody out there.‚ÄĚ -JES
