Jamie Jones is renowned for overseeing the rise to the top of the house and techno pile with his Hot Creations imprint and as founder and curator of the premier party brand Paradise.
Jamie shot to fame around 10 years ago, with his remix of ‘Hungry for the Power’ for Azari & III. He then went on to form the prolific British-American electronic music group Hot Natured with Lee Foss, Ali Love & Luca Cazal of Infinity Ink and vocalist Anabel Englund. Recently Jamie has continued to deliver his melodic minimal techno brand of music on imprints Four Thirty Two, Three Six Zero, Ultra Music and the newly launched Circo Loco Records.
This next EP on his Hot Creations imprint continues where he left off with three carefully crafted dancefloor cuts.
‘Mind Meld With Spock’, is an intergalactic production underpinned by a stuttering groove, dark acid tinges dripped throughout, crashing cymbals, prominent claps giving the track an overall fwonky (funky and wonky) feel. The perfect afterparty track to send the crowd into another dimension. No wonder it gets the seal of approval for a Mr Afterparty premiere!
Lead track ‘Handy Work’ sets the pace with a rumbly yet driving bassline combined with an infectious hook reminiscent of a trumpet cry throughout, topped off with classic diva vocal samples. The perfect track to keep crowds energies up until the early hours.
Here is what Jamie had to say about ‘Handy Work’:
“Handy Work came about at the end of a studio session after working for hours on another song, I had a little jam playing with some classic diva samples I’d found. I always loved this sample used by the legend Junior Vasquez in 1994. I made the first version in about an hour, and when I played it out I knew I had something, the crowd reaction was killer. This track is a simple party anthem, to welcome back the parties!”
The final track on this EP is ‘Sunday In Paris’ a low-slung groover consisting of gorgeous jazz elements infused throughout, mellow kicks, claps and bleeps interspersed throughout. A perfect record for those sunrise moments, truly emotional.
Jamie Jones’ ‘Handy Work’ is out now on Hot Creations.
