Title: Carry Me Away
Label: Black Hole Recordings/Magik Muzik
Release date: 28 April 2017
The same captivating, soulful voice that redefined the electronic dance music landscape with classics like "As the Rush Comes" and "Letting Go" has done it yet again; JES sweeps us off our feet with her new song "Carry Me Away," where her ethereal vocals are accompanied by sultry saxophone instrumentals and breezy digital melodies. "I feel just like I'm floating on a cloud," JES croons throughout the track, a fitting lyric for the dreamlike, cathartic quality of "Carry Me Away." The California-based singer-songwriter wrote "Carry Me Away" on her iPhone while delayed at New York's JFK airport during a snowstorm, perhaps giving the song its wistful quality; she collaborated with the Game Chasers, who also teamed with her on the Grammy-nominated "Hold On," for the final cut. Upon hearing the original vocals, the Unicorn Slayer himself, Markus Schulz, immediately requested them to make his own trance remix of the track. "Carry Me Away" possesses JES's signature timeless quality, so there's no doubt this one will be in heavy rotation for years to come.
