You can expect innovation and challenge from Intonenation," says JES. "I want to create an environment where progressive can progress."
Dance music star JES has already released two of this year's stand-out tracks – "Two Souls" & "Yai (Here We Go Again)" with Cosmic Gate. Now, the diminutive diva with the big voice returns with the debut release "Hold On" on her own, brand new label Intonenation Records.
JES, who has achieved almost every career milestone possible in dance music, has launched InToneNation to gain more artistic control of her releases. As creative head, she will be helping to shape the musical output of the label, along with her handpicked team.
"Hold On," out now, is a hard hitting, progressive house collaboration with rising stars Shant & Clint Maximus. Growing form a gritty bass groove into a huge vocal refrain, the song draws on the emotions of a troubled heart with an ultimately inspiring message.
"I first met Shant & Clint Maximus when I was on tour. Their passion and commitment to the craft impressed me right away. We have worked on some great remixes together, so it was a dream for us to be able to work on a full release together. 'Hold On' is very special for me. It's like the story of the label in a song and I wanted to launch the label with something that would have a universal appeal."
As the label grows, Intonenation will be a company that can nurture new talent and creativity. After being a part of the orchestral Electric Opus project, JES noted the obvious hunger the dance community has for new experiences. The inclusion of more live elements in shows and performances is something you can expect from JES & Intonenation. Re
