“Widely regarded as the leader of the new sound of House, Jamie Jones is renowned for his pioneering music; his cross-genre band, Hot Natured (with Lee Foss); his groundbreaking label, Hot Creations (also with Lee Foss); and his world-renowned event series, Paradise. In less than a decade, he has catapulted himself to stardom by shattering genres and breaking out of the confines of minimal Techno. Jamie Jones and his label, Hot Creations, have been credited with creating an iconic sound that has paved the way for a warmer, more melodic, deeper side of techno to emerge.”
–Resident Advisor (RA)
That’s right, the long-awaited visit from one of the world’s most sought after DJs and producers happens this Friday at Bijou Boston. Jamie Jones may have gained recent popularity for his work as part of Hot Natured, especially by way of his song “Reverse Skydiving”, but that is hardly the tip of the iceberg with this British artist. In early 2012, Jamie was voted the number one DJ in the world by Resident Advisor, which many consider to be the authority on dance music, especially with underground sounds. RA writes, “he continues to be seen as a leader in his field and an innovator who will dictate the direction of a booming industry.”
Jones has strung together countless live sets that have gained the attention of dance music fans all over the globe – many of them talked about online and everyone seeming to want to one-up the last person with an even better set. Let’s also not forget that Jamie Jones is a noted producer and label owner and has released some excellent original tracks, remixes, and edits. Notable remixes include Jamie Jones’ remix of Disclosure’s “Latch”, Cajmere’s “Percolator”, and Storm Queen’s “Look Right Through”. The party-starting vibes Jones puts out on his tracks are very hard to match – unique and fun at the same time.
This Friday at Bijou will be one of those nights where you, as a dance music fan, should go out and see what everyone’s talking about. If you want to hear some booming four-on-the-floor tracks that you may not recognize, and experience some Ibiza vibes in the middle of a frozen Boston Winter, this is the time and place to do it. A winner will be selected at random for a pair of free tickets on Friday afternoon. Good luck!
