Expectations were high when JES decided to start work on a remix project for the genre-busting, progressive trance classic “High Glow” which she released with Tiesto under the mysterious “Taxigirl” moniker. “It’s not everyday that you write a song with a guitar in a hotel bathroom and it translates perfectly to the dance floor,” JES said about her experiences of writing while on tour. “As a songwriter you’re always searching for inspiration, but sometimes the inspiration finds you”.
Channeling the same creativity that she used to create the song, JES set about finding the perfect remixers. In an exclusive premiere on edm.com, Hungarian producer and DJ Sunny Lax delivers a full tilt, progressive trance mix that brings “High Glow” right into 2014 without compromising the enchanting beauty of the original. Extended builds and a breathtaking, anthemic string-infused plateau perfectly compliment JES’ ethereal vocals. Sunny’s earliest releases on Anjunabeats quickly brought him to the forefront of the progressive trance genre with support from the likes of Above & Beyond & Armin van Buuren.
Ciaran McAuley’s uptempo retro UK influenced trance mix creates a surprising reinvention of the song. Keeping the emotion as it’s focus and featuring layered haunting arpeggios and subliminal vocals this mix is sure to translate well to the dance floor and playlists alike.
Hamptons Chill make a welcome return to the scene with their own inspired down tempo remix of “High Glow”. Their last remix (As The Rush Comes) from JES’ chill out album “Into The Dawn” went on to become a staple of poolside playlists worldwide. Once again putting the cool back into chill with a truly deep mix that combines emotion and emersion in equal measure the Hamptons Chill mix turns lounging into an art form.
