The newly crowned number one DJ in the world lets loose his second longplayer
on the number one label in the world (Resident Advisor 2011). Prepare to delve
deep as Jamie Jones brings us ‘Tracks From The Crypt’ on Crosstown Rebels.
Jamie Jones rise to the top has been a steady climb. The young Welshman was
always respected from fellow peers and artists through early releases on Freak
n’Chic, Cocoon, Get Physical and a debut artist album on Crosstown Rebels,
but now is deeply admired as the best in the game.
In ‘Tracks From The Crypt’ Jamie finally sets some of the best-loved dancefloor
bombs of the past five years loose from the vaults of his infamous studio. Tracks
such as the bouncing infectious grooves of ‘Somewhere’, ‘Paradise’ and
‘Frequencies’ are infamous from Jamie’s live recordings, and others such as the
electro-clash influenced ‘City At Night’, ‘Mari 2d Underground’ a future
dancefloor anthem and ‘Tonight In Tokyo’ featuring Luca C are as yet unheard
and offer a glimpse of the future. Closing with the leisurely pace of ‘The Lows’,
Jamie shows he can stretch the capabilities of house music and has formulated
his own new breed.
Jamie explains: "This is a collection of my favourite unreleased secret weapons
from the last 5 years plus some brand new tunes that I'm hammering on the
dancefloor right now. Looking back in the vaults, I found some killers that people
have been trying to get their hands on for ages and decided to make my
second album a combination of these."
The past few years have seen Jamie launch his own pioneering label and
brand, Hot Creations and production outfit Hot Natured, forging his own path
with a highly original sound as both a solo artist, and with various collaborations.
His remixes of Azari III and Green Velvet were among the biggest tracks of 2011
and he has the rare ability to appeal to many diverse styles of electronic music,
championed by Pete Tong, Annie Mac as well as Gilles Peterson.
Named Best Deep House DJ and remix of 2011 in DJ Awards Ibiza, Best DJ and
remix by DJ Mag UK and Best DJ from Mixmag UK as well as Resident Advisor No
1 DJ of the year, Jamie Jones and his label Hot Creations are amongst the
biggest names in dance music right now. Imitated the world over they got there
by infusing a new originality into a tiring style of dance music - injecting energy
through basslines and spirit through vocals and samples.
