Trance vocalist Jes (born Jes Brieden) had her first dancefloor hit in 2003 when she sang lead on Motorcycle's "As the Rush Comes," released by the Positiva label. In 2006 her appearance on the Deepsky single "Ghost" helped propel the single up the dance charts, then a popular bootleg remix called "Ghost in My Heart" appeared, mashing the cut with Ethan's "In My Heart." Signed to Ultra as a solo artist, Jes released her debut album, Disconnect, through the label in 2007. It was followed a year later with a set of remixes called Into the Dawn: The Hits Disconnected. The album High Glow followed in 2010 on the Ultra imprint and featured the club hit "Awaken." Unleash the Beat from 2011 kicked off Jes' mix series, along with her radio show of the same name, then in 2015 she launched her own label, InToneNation Records, with the single "Hold On." In late 2017, Jes announced that she would be releasing an alt pop project in early 2018 on InToneNation.
