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.
Calvin Harris And Ellie Goulding Revamp The Trance Music Genre!
Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding are on a mission to revamp the Trance music genre. With the release of their latest single “Miracle” and its fantastic music video, the two have once again proven their ability to produce chart-topping hits.
The Trance music genre is known for its mesmerizing and repetitive rhythm, usually paired with dreamy and inspiring tunes. As a matter of fact, “Miracle” is reminiscent of the time when this style became widely popular in Europe during the early 2000s.
In addition, the visuals feature Goulding wearing a crown as dancers and festival-ready lasers surround her, all while she delivers powerful high notes. Most importantly, this anthem has received positive feedback from fans since its premiere.
On a side note, “Miracle” is the third iteration of the Calvin Harris-Ellie Goulding collaborations, following the release of their smash jams, “I Need Your Love” in 2013 and “Outside” in 2014.
Without further ado, I believe that their creativity and synergy are what set them apart in this fresh exploration. So, if you’re already excited for more, that’s just the result of experiencing such a high-quality composition.

Trance Version Of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” — WATCH
Dash Berlin, Dubvision, and Emma Hewitt want to close 2022 with a flourish. These talents join forces to produce a brilliant cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time.” Not to mention, the music video is a must-watch for Trance fans.
They just finished shooting the visuals last month in South Korea and the results speak for themselves. From the neon lights to the skyscrapers and busy streets, you can tell the atmosphere is on point.
Get lost in the sound and the hypnotic nuances of this fresh rendition of the ’80s classic we all love. Magically, it starts slow but the rhythm gets intense and steady until the end.
Furthermore, the bittersweet and deep lyrics stay almost intact. In my opinion, this Trance version is shaped by a unique vocal presence but also by the contagious chord progression.
Letting go of a relationship, that is meaningless or makes you feel confused could be some form of teaching that leaves the whole composition. One way or another, the new cover begs for eyes closed and arms raised to the skies every listening moment. Enjoy it!
