REVIEW: JES - Get Me Through The Night on Intonenation Records

Releasing worldwide are two markedly different yet inspiring versions of JES’ song “Get Me Through The Night” through US label Intonenation Records

The Vibonacci & Starward Mix builds on the success of their recent remix work for JES which has enjoyed cult status. Combining soulful piano and synth work with infectious rhythms and vocal chops, the track unfolds around JES’ soaring vocals and heads towards a suitably dramatic completion. The original mix also builds on a strong piano foundation with a more classic dance floor feel. Setting emotive guitar melodies and imaginative synth work against JES’ stunning vocal performance the track grows from an intimate beginning to a stirring dance anthem.
“It’s funny how the night can be such an exciting time” said JES when asked about the lyrics of the song. “It’s like a primal instinct that we all have which seems to recognize that the world changes once the sun goes down. The mystery of the night fascinates us and it’s like you don’t know what you might get. It could be dangerous, exciting, scary or surprising. It’s still one of the great unknowns for all of us. So I wanted to write something that put that idea of light and dark into the context of a relationship because it all comes down to not giving up and having the faith to believe that you will pull through in the end”.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the most beloved singers in the electronic music scene returns with her newest solo single Get Me Through The Night. The track is offered in two very strong versions. The original extended is melodic dream deep house with strong pop references so it sounds perfect for radio playlists. The lyrics and vocal performance are meaningful and encouraging if you wish to party and singalong or to go through the night on your own working or maybe crying the loved one that hasn't called you for days. The track has wide variety of meanings and positive connotations to motivate us all. If you search for a festival friendly version the upcoming and quickly rising Vibonacci & Starward provide the very strong, emotional and totally danceable remix. With tropical influences, chunky grooves, playful deep basslines and xylophone melodies along with cool piano progression turns this version into an absolute must play record for peak time moments. JES with Get Me Through The Night strikes it lucky. #PureGold Love IT  [/content]
