JES said, “ThingLink’s new iTunes product tag provides a new sense of discovery within music. My fans have a unique opportunity to explore, sample and download additional songs in my full catalogue all without leaving the current music video or behind-the-scenes video they are enjoying at the moment. I’m thrilled to be a part of this ever growing world of discovery that interactive content is providing.”

Annotating a video with web links is easy. Simply copy and paste links into ThingLink’s editor. ThingLink automatically transforms and displays the web link as a rich media tag. ThingLink also offers tools to customize rich media tags with branding, icons, images, and several font types and colors.
ThingLink interactive videos are embeddable in web pages and deliver new, real-time performance metrics from across the web, including video views, tag displays, clicks and actions, time on video, and more.
For the “Two Souls” music video JES was inspired by her own fan’s creativity online and made a “fan style” music video. “I wanted to make something that encapsulated the energy of life and the connections between people. It was also important to tell the story using people other than myself so that the video would have more of group feeling, “ added JES.
Climbing from a sincere whisper to a euphoric scream “Two Souls” carries you on an unforgettable journey to everywhere that matters most. Soothing breakdowns perfectly compliment JES’ angelic vocal performance and grow through generous layers of uplifting synths into a massive melodic downpour. “Two Souls” will cross divides and rebuild bridges. This is the anthem for the estranged that will help them find their way home.
Tensteps Teases Album Release With 6th Single “Paradise Tonight”
Tensteps is here with another compelling production off his upcoming album. The sixth and final single before the album releases in full, “Paradise Tonight” is a striking new track released in collaboration with Sendr, featuring the vocals of Robin Vane. Set for release via Andrew Rayel’s label Find Your Harmony, “Paradise Tonight” is a powerful reminder why Tensteps’ signature style and sound is one to follow closely as he gears up to release his highly anticipated album ‘Infinite’ on October 6.
Speaking about the collaboration, Tensteps says:
“When Alex (Sendr) first sent me his draft of the track, it gave me a healthy dose of nostalgia. The whole track felt like it had all these elements of progressive house and progressive trance that I loved when I was first really getting into dance music -those Audien/Arty/2010’s Anjunabeats kind of vibes. There was no way I could turn down the collaboration on this, and I immediately got to work building it out and making everything sound as full and luscious as possible.”
“Paradise Tonight” features the signature emotive vocals of Robin Vane, a singer-songwriter from The Netherlands who has several impressive collaborations in his catalogue, including productions with Armin van Buuren and Omnia. With songs that have surpassed 7 million plays on streaming platforms and have reached the well-known Beatport Top 10, Robin Vane is a top-tier talent in electronic music, and his inclusion in this new release adds a vibrant layer of colour into the mix.
About his work with Robin Vane, Tensteps mentions:
“I wrote the topline for this song myself, and when we met Robin, it was clear he was the right choice to bring it to life. He’s got such a unique voice that added so much warmth and character to the song.”
“Paradise Tonight” features a bouncy low end and a pounding, fervent beat that starts off the track, as a growling acid bassline and driving rhythms build the intensity. The captivating vocals of Robin Vane hold the focus, taking listeners into the breakdown where atmospheric pads, anthemic details, and intensifying elements guide into the drop where massive supersaws complete the vibe, providing a high-energy climax to the track.
This new release from Tensteps proves his skills and talents as a producer, showcasing his top-notch production and earworm, Pop-infused songwriting. With a momentum that is sure to continue as he releases his debut full-length album next month, Tensteps is raising the bar and quickly making a name for himself in the dance music scene. Don’t forget to follow Tensteps across social media as he announces new releases, upcoming projects, and live dates.
