Jean Claude Ades


French-German producer Jean Claude Ades (aka JCA) has a long-term love affair with deep, sexy, soulful electronic music. JCA’s first release on his own label Swings, “Some day”, was the first of three No.1 hits on the Top 100 all-genre Beatport charts he is credited with, followed by both “Shingaling” and “Vallee de Larmes” on Great Stuff Recordings. JCA and Sharam Jay’s “Happy Mondays!” (just released on Suara) is equally a glimpse of what magic coming out of the studio at the moment.

Like Jean Claude Ades himself, who first began his production career with successes such as Dannii Minogue’s biggest hit “I Begin To Wonder”, his label has also gone through a transformation, and has recently been renamed Be Crazy Music, to fit neatly into the overall international brand.

JCA earned his stripes in Ibiza delivering his unique sound to his weekly shows on Ibiza Global Radio and to his parties and residencies. Following his 2012 residency at Lio where his musical style proved a game changer for the island’s scene, 2013 has seen Jean Claude secure another landmark residency at the newly launched Ushuaia Tower.
