Eargasm goals: Jes – Imagination with the Will Atkinson touch
Jes – Imagination (Will Atkinson remix) was out on February 22 and now is sitting very nicely as no. 1 in Beatport’s Trance Top 100. The remix is out for days, but my soul has finally cooled off to write about it. If I was to write on the release day, you would have read a novel.
Jes’s voice will always be through one of my favorites in the trance scene and Will Atkinson is one of the best in the scene. When there is a combination of these 2, you cannot expect anything else than perfection. This remix is a very serious contender for Tune of the Year. And I am not the only one to say it.
This remix is eargasm goals. It has everything it needs to be in every playlist in the world and for us to abuse that repeat button. 🙂 It is love at first listen. It is driving, energetic, magic!
I can tell in your eyes, while listening to this, where you go, ’cause I have been to each state you are in now too. I know it’s like a trip, maybe to me, a trip too far, moving forward, faster into my imagination, but let it run away with me.
Imagination is in our hearts since 2008, and it was remixed by Tiesto, Kaskade and others too. But if you ask me, no one did it better than Atkinson.
Letting JES’s ‘Imagination’ run away with him, over nine minutes Will’s rework takes it to any number of new dimensions. Rolling JES’s opening refrains over crisp breaks and then capitalising with 4/4 beats, he brings in a beast of a b-line and an irresistible riptide of surging sub-riffs. Will then deftly clicks it over into a thumping progressive tract, allowing – through pathos-soaked pads, synths and endless FX detail, that emotion to swell.
Finally – right when you think it’s topped out and hasn’t anymore road to run, he stunningly upscales again. With a break picked out by authentic guitars strains and heart-seeking chime, Will finally eclipses all with the kind of mainline uplift your night simply won’t recover from.

Track also did awesome at ASOT 900 Utrecht the other weeks and Will perfectly illustrates the feels after in his latest video:
