The single, “Universe,” is a collaboration between Space Motion, one of the most accomplished electronic music producers, and American vocalist JES, known for collaborating with some of the industry’s biggest stars. The track gained significant attention even before its release, having been played by Like Mike at Tomorrowland and Armin van Buuren in his iconic podcast “ASOT.” Thanks to EXIT’s strong connection with the famed Novi Sad producer and DJ, the track’s name was inspired by the theme of the recently concluded festival, and its music video was filmed at the Dance Arena.
“We’re incredibly proud of Space Motion’s success on the global music stage, competing neck and neck with top-tier producers. Having been at the forefront of the global festival scene for over two decades, we understand the dedication, hard work, and sacrifices needed. It’s thrilling for us to join forces and pave the way for other talented individuals from our region to achieve global acclaim,” stated the founder and director of the EXIT festival.
Space Motion’s credentials speak volumes, especially his first place on Beatport’s Top 100! Last year, he clinched an impressive second spot on Beatport’s list of top artists in the hugely popular melodic techno genre. Only the duo Artbat surpassed him, while he ranked ahead of prominent names like the Diynamic label by Solomun. Space Motion also landed the esteemed third position in the Afro-house genre.
“I’m delighted that my latest release is also the debut for the EXIT Soundscape record label. Given that both the festival and I hail from Novi Sad, this collaboration seemed almost inevitable. The positive reception from fans and industry peers assures me that this release will be enduring and successful,” commented Space Motion.
Trance queen and hitmaker JES, who teams up with Space Motion on this track, has collaborated with a litany of notable names in the electronic music world, including Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, and Gabriel & Dresden, among others. She has received three Grammy nominations: twice for “Best Dance/Electronic Album” and once for “Best Remixed Recording.”
The partnership between Space Motion and EXIT is the latest in a series of successful collaborations between domestic brands. EXIT Soundscape has taken things up a notch by partnering with global digital distributor Paradise Worldwide, which engages with numerous artists and record labels globally across music distribution, digital strategies, and publishing. The single “Universe” is now available on platforms like Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, Beatport, Traxsource and JunoDownload.
EXIT Echosystem was founded with the mission to offer budding and talented musicians from our region and beyond comprehensive support, giving them an opportunity to build successful international careers. This includes a music label, artist management, booking, mentorship, and partnerships with leading global music stars and agencies. The record label EXIT Soundscape was launched under the same umbrella.
