2016 was the year Jack Wins showed his hand to the scene. In February 2016, Jack introduced his sound to 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 spreading the release to all corners of the world. With his debut release so well received, 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 latest musical masterpiece that sprung from his creative mind was ‘I Used To Love You’ (Mixmash Deep). It hit the Beatport Top 10 after major support from the industry’s heavy weights like Nicky Romero, Don Diablo and many more.
It wasn’t long before BBC Radio 1 picked it up and caused the record to trend in Shazam’s UK Dance Chart. Dutch radio stations SLAM! and Radio 538 both put ‘I Used To Love You’ in their testpanel and it got approved by the Dutch listeners with 72,6 % and 82,9 % percent! A huge result leading to Jack become one of SLAM!’s artists to watch for 2017.
Winning over the big guys
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 Clean Bandit, Dua Lipa, Naughty Boy and Tom Odell. His remix of ‘Rockabye’ even peaked at #2 on Beatport! His biggest accomplishment in the area of remixes is his official remix for Ed Sheeran - Shape of You (release date TBA), that is set to do extremely well on worldwide radio this spring.
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.
Since Jack’s debut at the world famous Ministry of Sound, this Dutchman has furthermore been touring around the world; picking up fans across Europe, Asia and beyond in the process. It even got him on the radar of DJ MAG UK: ‘If you’re a fan of house music, you can’t go past the feel-good styling of Jack Wins!’
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! “
