NETTWERK ONE MUSIC (NW1) has signed electronic music artist JES to its worldwide publishing roster.
The NEW YORK native has been at the forefront of dance music since her 2005 smash “As The Rush Comes” (with MOTORCYCLE) broke international dance chart records. JES’ catalog spans some of the most important songs in EDM with over 300 releases to date with the likes of TIESTO, ARMIN VAN BUUREN, PAUL OAKENFOLD, ABOVE & BEYOND, ATB, KASKADE, BT, RICHARD DURAND and COSMIC GATE, as well as four solo artist albums.
Her songs have resulted in two BILLBOARD chart-toppers, a pair of GRAMMY nominations, numerous BEATPORT hits, three consecutive wins in the ISC (INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITING COMPETITION) and an INTERNATIONAL DANCE MUSIC AWARD for Best New Artist. Earlier this year, JES launched her own INTONENATION RECORDS label with her hit, “Hold On” hitting the #12 spot on BEATPORT.
Commented NETTWERK's MARK JOWETT: “JES has really been the voice of electronic music, given her collaborations with TIESTO, BT, FERRY CORSTEN and PAUL OAKENFOLD, among many others. While she continues to work on fantastic collaborations, she is now carving a path as a tremendous artist in her own right. NW1 is delighted and honored to be working with her.”
“I am truly excited to become a part of the NETTWERK family,” JES says. “I hope to broaden my writing experiences and reach into some different genres as well as EDM. I think a great song can always transcend the genre.”
JES’ new L.A. headquarters provides two writing rooms as well as tracking and mixing facilities, and serves as the creative hub for her writing and production activities. It is also the home of her new label and her revered “Unleash The Beat” radio show and mix-compilation franchise.
