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.
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; his groundbreaking label, Hot Creations; 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's revolutionary sound is an instrumental part of his success, being both artistically innovative and yet easily accessible. He 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. 2011 was the year that Jamie and Hot Creations
took over. Continuing to power out hits, they released Hot Natured’s
“Forward Motion,” featuring vocalist Ali Love. But it was Jamie’s remix
of Azari & III’s “Hungry for the Power” that was the quintessential song
of the year; heard everywhere in Ibiza and beyond.
In 2012, Jamie and Lee Foss evolved their project, Hot Natured, into a
full band; adding Ali Love and Luca C as members. Taking elements of
the grooves Jamie has long championed and forging them with song
based vocals and smooth synth melodies into a live act, Jamie looked
to challenge conventions with this new direction. The first Hot Natured
single, “Benediction,” reached the top 40 in the UK in 2013 and the
debut album "Different Sides Of The Sun" continues to sell strongly six
months after its release. In 2014, Hot Natured is viewed as one of the
most in-demand electronic live acts globally.
Jamie’s constant touring schedule takes in every major city and festival
around the world; including such spectacles as Glastonbury, Timewarp,
and Burning Man, as well as highly esteemed clubs like Warung,
Fabric, and Womb. His weekly Ibiza party, Paradise, has completed two
huge seasons at DC10 and goes into its third year as the fastest
growing night on the island. This success has meant that Paradise has
been offered stages at some of the world's biggest electronic music
festivals, such as Tomorrowland, Global Gathering, Kazantip and BPM
and the brand will continue to grow world-wide through 2014.
In early 2012, Jamie was voted the number one DJ in the world by
Resident Advisor. He continues to be seen as a leader in his field and
an innovator who will dictate the direction of a booming industry.
