‘If you’re a fan of house music, you can’t go past the feel-good styling of Jack Wins!’ – DJ Mag (UK)
With his fresh sound and positive vibes, Dutch DJ/Producer Jack Wins is already winning over the biggest tastemakers in the industry with DJ Mag (UK) handpicking him as one of their ‘Ones to Watch’ in 2016!
In February 2016, Jack stormed onto the scene with his debut release ‘Give It Up’ on Laidback Luke’s ‘Mixmash Deep’ imprint. It wasn’t long before industry heavy weights like Don Diablo, Tiesto and Oliver Heldens started playing it in their radio shows.
iTunes featured it as their ‘Hot Track’ and Spotify handpicked it for their ‘Fresh EDM’ playlist. With 5 consecutive plays on BBC Radio 1 and over 700k plays on Spotify, ‘Give It Up’ set the industry alight with accolades from all corners of the scene.Following the phenomenal debut success, Jack continued the buzz with heavy hitters like ‘Slave 2 Love’ (Mixmash Deep) and ‘Good Love’ (Armada Deep) – showing the industry he’s on a winning streak.
His relentlessness was shown once more when ‘I Used To Love You’ (Mixmash Deep) hit the Beatport Top 10 after major support from tastemakers. It wasn’t long before BBC Radio 1 picked it up and caused the record to trend in Shazam’s UK Dance Chart.
In addition to solo productions, Jack is also becoming the ‘go to’ guy for remixes; having already put his signature touch on #1 records for Ed Sheeran, Clean Bandit, Dua Lipa, Naughty Boy and Tom Odell. His remix of ‘Rockabye’ even peaked at #2 on Beatport!
Despite being the ‘talk of town’, Jack remains refreshingly immune from letting the hype go to his head. True to his Dutch roots, he prefers to cycle to his gigs and is particularly fond of pop art and colourful attire, making him one of the easy-to-spot characters in-and-out-of club land.
So why the name ‘Jack Wins’? “Well, I wanted to have a name that represents both my music and positivity’’ he says. ‘’The name ‘Jack’ to me represents ‘house music’, as historically the name is closely associated with this genre, and ‘Wins’ refers to my ethos: ‘winning’ at life - focus on the things in life that make you happy! “
His ‘Winning’ attitude is reflected in both his music and bright fashion sense: to be distinctive yet fun, to entertain, but not to lose focus.
It’s a master plan that kick started by a visit to a 25k capacity rave in his hometown Haarlem at the extreme tender age of just 11. There was no looking back, and his determination to make an impact on the dance scene has been relentlessly pursued ever since.
Since Jack’s debut at the world famous Ministry of Sound, this Dutchman has been touring around the world; picking up fans across Europe, Asia and beyond in the process.
In a breakout year highlighted by major successes, Jack Wins has proven himself to be one of the most promising producers around. Now charging full steam ahead into 2017 as it’s only a matter of time before Jack starts hitting the main stages and join his colleagues in the rise to global ‘feel good house’ domination!
