There’s one journey that unites everyone in the world, the desire to feel connected. The search to find one’s destiny and be set free is fueled through JES’ brand new single “Before You Go” off her mix album Unleash the Beat. The new song, released by Black Hole Recordings through Magik Muzik Imprint and Ultra Records, brings together JES and Europe’s most sought-after beat maker, Andy Duguid for the very first time. Featuring an 80’s inspired performance video, JES searches the city in haze of light and color.
JES is the chart-topping, award-winning artist who has packed four albums and two Billboard #1 singles into five short years as a solo artist while touring internationally and collaborating with countless superstar DJ’s and producers like Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade, BT, Richard Durand and Cosmic Gate. Her new single, takes quiet instances contained in the chaos of life, and sums up every “what might have been?” moment and sets it to a contagious electronic opus made by Andy.
After creating the lyrics, JES sought out someone who could design the sound that fit her vision. The EMD heavyweight found her match in skilled Scottman, Andy Duguid. The original pairing creates a magnetic force on the track.
“I had written the song and I was really happy with my vocals but when I sent it out to some producers I wasn’t inspired by what was coming back. I just knew when I heard Andy’s first draft, that he totally got the song and found the perfect sonority for it right away” says JES.
JES’ dynamic vocals fused with Andy’s electric sound brings a pulsing urgency to the single. Andy’s original mix and radio edit keep the prog wheels turning with a vocal heavy arrangement that is as melodically satisfying as it is rhythmically inspired by JES’s lyrics.
