EDM Superstar JES Gets Lifted on ‘Carry Me Away’ With Game Chasers: PopCrush Premiere
She's worked with just about everyone in the EDM world at this point — from the likes of Tiesto to BT to Gabriel & Dresden to ATB — and now, prolific dance floor fixture JES is getting lifted alongside Game Chasers.
"Carry Me Away" is the honey-voiced Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter's latest offering, out today (Apr. 28). Written on her iPhone while stuck at JFK airport during a snow storm, the track is a reflection on the experience of being helpless and leaving it "up to fate."
“There’s something about being trapped by the power of nature that makes you want to submit and leave it all up to fate," she tells PopCrush.
"Carry me away, it's meant to be / Carry me away to a place where we belong," she croons, accompanied by a warm breeze of saxophone before diving into a pulverizing beat drop.
And, as this is the year 2017, the record was done remotely: "I collaborated on the track with Game Chasers over the internet. We’ve known each other for a long time so we have a good connection. We leave voice messages for each other with our ideas and thoughts. It feels much more personal than writing messages. You can tell so much more about how someone really feels when you hear them say it!”
After hearing the song's original mix, Markus Shulz was so smitten, he requested JES' vocals to create his own version of the song as well.
