The Recording Academy recently announced the nominees for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards and dance music artist JES is in consideration for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical, for the Fatum remix to her song with Shant & Clint Maximus, ‘Hold On’. The very first release off of her new label Intonenation Records, the nomination continues her journey from her beginnings as the featured vocalist on tracks with Tiesto, BT, Paul Oakenfold and more to her current reign as label head, DJ and producer.
"I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that has supported ‘Hold On’ this year," says JES. "I really hoped that the debut release on my label Intonenation
Records would be something special so receiving this nomination means so much to everyone involved. I think we all felt the song had a unique quality from the start and Chad and Bill from Fatum
managed to elevate it to another level with their incredible remix. Thank you all for believing in our dream and having the courage to pursue it."
The DJ and radio support for the Fatum remix saw play from Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, ATB, Myon and Shane, Cosmic Gate, Judge Jules and many others.
Fatum: “A massive thank you to JES, Shant & Clint Maximus for asking us to remix such an awesome record. We've always been huge fans of JES' but we knew this vocal was
special, and indeed it was!"
Shant & Clint Maximus: “…knew the track was a special one when JES wanted to release it on Intonenation Records as its first release. Her vocals were unreal and words cannot describe how powerful, how touching the lyrics are."
The 58th Grammy Awards take place on 15 February 2016.
