JES, the reigning queen of Rocktronica and the woman responsible for so many of your favorite trance hits, is constantly evolving. Her musicianship, often overshadowed by producer’s bass lines and synths, is where her heart beats the loudest. Not your average vocalist, JES has also begun experimenting with doing some live DJ sets as she showed during her performance at this year’s Ultra Music Festival. A multi-lingual singer/songwriter, pianist, guitarist, radio host, DJ and all-around entertainer, JES has proved that girls really run the world. And if her ever-growing resume doesn’t impress you, her beautiful soul without a doubt will.

In 2011, he earned the title of Beatport’s Best Artist and was ranked 29th in DJ Magazine's "Top 100 DJ’s". Umek's music continues to top Beatport’s techno charts, and he's been remixing major artists like Carl Cox, M.I.K.E., and John Digweed.
