It has been an year of unprecedented Mainstream and Adult successes for Nikki Phoenix who along with her duo partner JackEL are the EDM Duo and Producer act Jackeld Phoenix.
This year saw Phoenix nominated for a 7th Mainstream Star of the Year Award as her mainstream career has exploded.
She has forged ahead in the adult marketspace, releasing new scenes for her Website, NikkiPhoenixxx.com as well as movies her distribution deal with Juicy, resulting in 3 AVN nominations including: Best New Imprint, for her new company Little Dragon Pictures, and an additional nomination for her movie Pretty Kitties, which received a nomination for Best Soundtrack for her song “Your Smile“, which was the #1 trending EDM single on Soundcloud, May 2015, with 3.3 Million plays and received heavy rotation on radio stations in the US, Canada and Europe, while being debuted at Nightclub performances and appearances all over the US, the first time EVER an Adult Soundtrack has ever achieved those distinctions.
“We couldn’t be more happy this year, with Jackeld Phoenix headlining our first Music Festival, our music in rotation on the radio, hitting #1 on Soundcloud, signing our distribution deal with Beatport, and our music appearing in the first Casino Game featuring skill based gaming.” stated Phoenix, “It’s been a whirlwind with our performances at nightclubs and with the mainstream modeling and spokesmodel work I have continued to do throughout the year, but it was even sweeter that AVN recognized the hard work of our new production company Little Dragon Pictures and our distribution deal with Juicy, with a nomination for Best New Imprint, and our movie Pretty Kitties for Best Soundtrack, as no soundtrack has ever achieved the commercial and mainstream success Your Smile has achieved. It definitely lets the world know that a performer is no longer stigmatized by this wonderful industry, and can pursue Mainstream and Adult careers and success at the same time. JackEL and I, as well as our management team and Label would both like to thank everyone at AVN, and our distributors Juicy and Beatport, as well as Vang Comp Systems and our mainstream partners, all of the Nightclubs and Festivals who have supported us, as well as all our fans and supporters for an amazing year, and I promise this is just the start of our incredible journey together.”
Particularly proud of Ms. Phoenix was their distributor, Juicy, and company owner Jerry Estrada, who signed Ms. Phoenix not realizing the mainstream success she was catapulting into this year. With Phoenix set to release her 5th title during AVN and her recent sponsorship with Wet® , her Adult success mirrors all of her accomplishments in Mainstream. While Juicy as company receiving a total of 98 nominations this year, Ms. Phoenix’s 3 nominations are particularly meaningful to both him and the Juicy family.
“This was a very special year for us at Juicy.” said Jerry E., company Owner, “While we received 95 nominations with the other companies and directors under our umbrella, these 3 are by far the sweetest. We have never had a nomination for Best Soundtrack, with the star performer singing and producing it, let alone one that hit #1 and is playing on the radio. On top of that for her new company to be recognized with Best New Imprint and for her to be nominated for a 7th Mainstream Star award, it’s as big a sweep as anyone can achieve I think. We are tremendously proud of Nikki and her Team, and can’t wait for her next release in January. We are also very impressed that she secured a sponsorship for personal lubricants for her movies, and it shows everyone just how well her brand is established in mainstream as well as adult.”
This month also saw Little Dragon Pictures achieve yet another milestone, with a Personal Lubricant Sponsorship by Wet® from Trigg Laboratories. With Lubricant an essential element for on set performances, Ms. Phoenix opted for silicone based lubricant Wet Platinum for use with all of her performers. As she wanted to ensure only the best products were available for her talent, she opted for the Premier name in Personal Lubricant Products, Wet®. For over 25 years, Wet® has made high-quality, innovative and unique products that are formulated using only the finest ingredients. Founded in 1989 By Michael Trigg, Trigg Laboratories manufactures premium sexual wellness and consumer healthcare products and is the parent company of Wet International, Inc., one of the world’s best-selling lines of personal lubricants and intimacy products. With Trigg Laboratories also up for 3 awards nominations this season as well, including AVN awards Lubricant Company of the Year nominee, it was only fitting they find a star and production company to partner with that shared their vision of excellence.
“We love that Mainstream Star of the Year nominee, Nikki Phoenix, loves Wet and we are so excited to be a part of Little Dragon Pictures’ productions this year.” Said Jennifer Martsolf, VP of Marketing for Trigg Laboratories, “You can see by the nominations, they release quality content and we are honored that they’ve chosen Wet on set.”
