Biography: Jean Claude Ades
Jean Claude Ades is a global player, born and raised in Italy, residing in Munich, and a regular in Ibiza. Even though he started as a pianist, at heart he is a producer, DJ, remixer and songwriter. After learning the piano from scratch, he went the way of the synthesizer, keyboards and computers, all the way to become a producer. For the last 10 years the 32-year old has been influencing the international Dance Scene with his remixes, productions and with his highly energetic DJ sets. His early productions, e.g., Shake That Ass, The Colour Of My Style, Everything I Do, and others, opened the door for him to various major companies.
Down to the present day, enthusiasts of house music around the world will remember the melody of his hit record I Begin To Wonder featuring Dannii Minogue which reached number #1 in the sales charts in Italy, #2 in the UK, #3 in France, #2 in Australia and went top ten in several other countries like Japan, Germany and the Netherlands. His remix of Nightcrawlers Push The Feeling On made it on to the #1 spot of the Billboard Radio Dance Charts in the USA.
In 2005 Jean Claude Ades took the next logical step forward, he started his own label Swings Records, after getting back his independence, he created the right basis for his own productions. Being his own A&R is of utmost importance to him, since for him bending the Jean Claude Ades Sound for commercial reasons is beyond all question. Under these unrestricted circumstances, Jean Claude made a direct hit with the first release on Swings. His track Someday, featuring vocals by Niki Haris (formerly Snap and background vocalist for Madonna), made it onto the playlists of several renown global players like and became a club anthem and fast-selling record after a very short period of time. Shortly after, his remix of the US number 1 hit Pussycat Dolls feat. Busta Rhymes - Dont Cha attracted massive attention and skyrocketed to the #2 position of the Dance Charts in Germany. Almost simultaneously, his remix of the Electro hit of the year 2005 Coburn We Interrupt This Program was released on Swings Records followed by another smasher Fly Away ft. Rufus Martin which was immediately picked by Ministry of Sound.
His production and DJ style can best be described in the context of his music philosophy: Music must sound global, like a mix from 30 different countries, but still harmonic. This maxim manifests in his intoxicating dj-sets, where classic House beats meet contemporary electronic elements. Well tried and renowned sounds turn, with a little twist on the readily available Kaos-Pad and Pioneer CDJ 1000, into something progressive and absolutely new bassful electro fuses with uplifting House, vocals and pumping bass drums until the crowd is caught in a breathtaking break-down, waiting for the next drumbeat that will make them freak and go bananas. These are the moments Jean Claude loves playing for. Gigs at the best clubs and festivals around the world e.g. Cocoon, M1, Heineken Beach Festivals Taiwan and HongKong, Zima, Osen and Leto Proejct Moscow, MTV Battle of the DJ´s, Designerama and the MTV Parties in the Tunesian Dessert as well as the Loveparade in Berlin proof that he is in great demand and a truly international DJ.
In near future the turmoil around the sympathetic DJ promises not to cease, his debut artist album is scheduled for 2006, it will feature several surprises and of course the best versions of his long list of already released club hits. He also just finished mixing the Kontor Top Of The Clubs Vol. 30 Compilation and the Ministry Of Sound Clubbers Guide To Ibiza 2006
