Roger Shah, Brian Laruso, and JES have recently collaborated to produce their latest track, “Higher Than the Sun.” Officially released on Magic Muzik, the official music video and remixes by the likes of Aly & Fila, Sunlounger, and Jesse Vorn will arrive in July.
"Higher Than the Sun" begins with a subtle build featuring JES’ voice, and at about 1:20 we really begin to hear those reminiscent vocals from songs such as "Awaken," (JES), "Every Other Way," (BT feat. JES),” and "Flying Blind (Cosmic Gate feat. JES)." While the song keeps an invigorating pace, it also maintains an emphasis on the potency of the lyrics and of the vocals. What’s great about this song is the powerful blend of JES’s heartfelt singing, high-energy synth, and string components. It’s raw in emotion, yet listeners can’t stop moving to the progressive-trance beat.
Roger Shah has been active in the international EDM scene for more than 20 years and boasts an impressive release record of more than 500 tracks on some of the largest and most successful record labels in the world. As a producer he has worked with and for artists such as Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Paul Oakenfold, Sarah MacLachlan, and Ferry Corsten.
Brian Laruso, commonly known for being half of Global Experience with Roger Shah, has collaborated on multiple hit singles for the group including the popular "Fox & Koi." Now the two appear under their own names for this new collaboration with female vocalist JES; chart-topper, IDMA winner, and the voice behind hit records with Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Gabriel & Dresden, and BT, among others. Together the three have created a charismatic impetus to the song with her unequalled vocal performance.
