THE TAKE 5 SERIES
We sat down with artist Jack Wins for a chat on latest projects, the future of music, and much more.
Jack Wins is a house DJ best known for song “Freewheelin’” featuring singer Caitlyn Scarlett. The song boasts tens of millions of streams across listening platforms, unsurprising considering that Jack Wins has accrued over a million monthly listeners on Spotify.
Later that same year, Jack experienced early success once more when his follow-up single, “I Used to Love You,” made its way onto the Beatport Top 10. Since then, the artist has established himself as a major player in the international house scene. In fact, in the words of DJ Mag: “If you’re a fan of house music, you can’t get passed the feel-good styling of Jack Wins!”
Most recently, Jack Wins released latest single “Light Up My Life” with Spinnin’ Records. The single dropped just last month and has already entered the Club MTV chart at #10.
