Dance music icon DJ Sammy, who during a three-decade-plus long career has sold more than 20 million records is set to launch the next great house music vocal classic “Have You Ever Seen The Rain”. The Platinum Award-winning, DJ Mag Top 100 artist, has enlisted the incredible vocal talents of London-based singer Jess Taggart, as well as the chart-topping skills of Irish DJ Micky Modelle.
London-born vocalist Jess Taggart with her unique, ethereal, and elegant voice is primed and ready to make her mark on the music industry. Inspired in part by R&B, indie, and pop icons, Jess has spent years evolving her versatile voice, to become more than just a vocalist, she is a truly talented singer with a distinctive sound, that allows her to tell stories, and convey an emotional connection to reach out and bond with her current and future audience.
Following on from her mega-collab with hardstyle producer Sick Legend on his track “Remember Hardstyle”, Jess is now working together with one of the most iconic dance music figures and DJs of all time, the unmistakable DJ Sammy.
There’s no sound quite like the sound of a Micky Modelle track, considered one of Ireland’s best DJs and producers, he has earned the “Best Irish DJ” award on four separate occasions, has achieved eight platinum albums, and is the best-selling DJ in his country.
