LONGTIME REBEL MAKES HIS DEBUT RELEASE FOR CROSSTOWN REBELS!
Jamie Jones is a name that will be familiar to most on the underground circuit, a regular behind and in front of the decks across Europe and Ibiza - he’s a genuine rising star! His talent and hard work has been rewarded with regular DJ slots at Fabric, T-Bar and DC10 throughout 2006 and his profile will no doubt keep growing in 2007 with more big gigs and releases scheduled, including mixing and compiling the much anticipated follow up to Get Lost, which will be released in Spring.
At the beginning of 2006 Jamie released the Amazon EP on Dan Ghenacia’s Freak n’Chic label and it was widely regarded as one of the finest debut EP’s in recent years, picking up support and major respect from some of the biggest DJs in the world and appeared on some of the best mix compilations of the year including Tiefschwarz’s ‘Fabric’ mix, Steve Bug’s ‘Bugnology 2’, Sven Vath’s ‘Sound Of The 7th Season’ and Steve Lawler’s ‘Viva’. A follow up for Freak n’Chic has recently been released, earning an equally high level of excitement and Steve Bug was so impressed he asked him to record for Poker Flat – Jamie has a track on the new ‘Poker Flat Volume Five – Bets’N’Bluffs’. Refusing to conform, his productions and ideas are full of character and his sound is crisp, deep and groovy.
‘Panic’ is fixed around a simple killer groove that enforces your feet to dance! On top of that comes a huge siren that’s been put through the FX unit to really elevate it into a floor-filler. It’s a big track and has been causing real damage for the few lucky DJs to have already had a copy – 300 one sided white labels went on sale in November and sold out in a day!
The B-side ‘Paper Trail’ is a brilliant slice of deep rolling dub. Heavy bass, a rigid kick and scratchy echo’s make up the nucleus of the track that slowly builds and builds, finally dropping out to high pitched bleeps, squeaks and twisted noise and then back in to the groove. A perfect record to set the mood.
To complete the package there’s the ‘Panic Tools.
