JAMIE JONES

Widely regarded as a leader of the new sound of house, Jamie Jones has catapulted himself to stardom by shattering the invisible confines of genres, and breaking out of the minimal techno motif.

Jamie’s endless touring schedule includes nearly every major city and festival around the world; including such spectacles as Glastonbury, Tomorrow Land, and Burning Man, as well as highly esteemed clubs like Warung, Fabric, and Womb. In addition, he holds his own Ibiza party, “Paradise,” every summer at DC-10, as well as global pop up parties.

His revolutionary sound is an instrumental part of his success, being both artistically innovative 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.

Jamie has always worked to expand the musical spectrum of his industry; from his first release of “Amazon” in 2006 to his acclaimed Essential Mix filled with rare cosmic disco and timeless underground house on BBC Radio 1 BBC in 2009. In 2009, he also released the hugely popular trippy and hypnotic anthem, “Summertime,” on Crosstown Rebels. In 2010, Jamie released a remix of Green Velvet’s classic “Flash” that quickly rose on the charts and filled dance floors.

2011 was the year Jamie Jones 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.

At the beginning of 2012, Jamie was voted the #1 DJ by Resident Advisor, and the demand for his signature brand of bass oriented and groove driven house grew exponentially. He started his weekly party in Ibiza, “Paradise,” at the legendary DC-10. It was a wildly successful night, and he will continue it this summer every Wednesday.

Rather than simply riding out the tidal waves he has created for himself, Jamie continues to push forward on new musical frontiers. He and Lee Foss have evolved their project, Hot Natured, into a full band; adding Ali Love and Luca as members. It takes elements of the grooves Jamie has long championed and forges it with song-based vocals and smooth synth melodies into a live act. Jamie looks to challenge conventions with this new direction.

“I’m trying to illuminate this very niche, almost secret world of underground house and techno in a way that can be accepted by the mass public. Bringing two worlds together.” His goal may not be far off. The first single off the new album, “Benediction,” has already reached the top 40 charts in the UK. Hot Natured will release their first album and start their first live concert series in April of this year.

Jamie concurrently continues his own tour and release of his music as well as launching his new label this year: HOTTRAX.

DUBFIRE

Ali Shirazinia, known by his stage name Dubfire, left the comforts of a storied career as one-half of Grammy-winning duo Deep Dish in order to pursue new life as a producer of ‘jet-black, polished chrome techno.’ Such daring reinvention is not for the faint of heart – yet Dubfire in just three short years has emerged as a technological innovator, an acclaimed producer, and the owner of the lauded SCI+TEC Digital Audio record label.

TIGA

Sometime in 2007, Tiga achieved Full Online Consciousness. This has given him the ability to speak directly to you through the computer, a miracle you will only now come to fully appreciate:

My Name Is Tiga. Welcome to the Bio-Dome, mec!

As you know, my remix work has slowed considerably as of late. While my versions of tracks by Alter Ego, New Young Pony Club, The Gossip and Human League have only enhanced my reputation as the Sex Whiz of Sonic Parkour, I felt I needed to start hoarding my best ideas for my own music. The remix of Alter Ego’s ‘Gary’, for instance, forced me to cannibalize much of the work I’d done in my now-legendary sessions with Bobby McFerrin. It was then that I knew that I had to draw the line.

The seeds for ZZT, my ongoing collaboration with Zombie Nation, when we hit it off at the semi-biannual Gigolo High-Earners Galmour Pageant and Hot Meal. After falling out with Gigolo over accusations of cyber-arson, I approached him about working together, possibly on music. I soon came to love his thing-throwing, humor-having ways. Our tracks tend to be ‘live’ in nature, in that we try to only use parts that require four hands at a time. Or 19 fingers and three lips. It depends.

Rainier Werner Bassfinder takes everything great about my work with Jesper Dahlback and takes it to a new level. One that forces me to use a fake name. I chose the moniker ‘The Dove’ for reasons contractual and shame-based. Probably 70/30, contract/shame. Oh, Michael Gothard, I only wanted to do right by you!

Over the past few years, I have continued to tour the globe extensively. I have eaten Club Sandwiches in over 60 countries and done ‘The Sandwich’ in over 600 clubs. I was also brave enough to visit the Middle East, with a harrowing trip to war-ravaged Dubai. I was taken falconing (this is 100 percent true), which was strange enough before I found out that the falcons undergo extensive plastic surgery to look more like celebrities. My falcon, I was told, was supposed to resemble Ethan Hawke. I don’t know who that is.

The past few years have also seen a resurgence at my record label, Turbo. The work done by Thomas Von Party in A&R and Oliver Interactive in International Business Affairs has been invaluable. I can’t express how much I appreciate their efforts in making Turbo the Towerhorse it is today. I would be remiss, however, in not mentioning the real star of the show, our Branding Consultant, Brandon Branding.

Brandon saw ways of expanding our brand in new and exciting directions. He insisted I start participating in community soccer leagues to lend an ‘everyman’ quality to my daunting brilliance. I was skeptical at first, but soon I came to treasure seeing the faces of 50-year-old men in goggles light up as I take the field. I am a defense-minded, vaguely passive-aggressive midfielder, and have trained online with Ghana international Michael Essien.

Mr. Branding also encouraged me to write for the label, birthing a torrid run of press sheets that has sparked in me a love of letters deep and true. Now I write all the time. I even replaced my car’s paneling with dry-erase board, so that I may lean out the driver’s seat window at a moment’s notice to scrawl away at the face of literature.

Today, our reach extends even further, thanks to my venturing into the world of amateur inventing. There’s the Grocery Claw, aimed at those who rightly abhor what I call Market Filth. And, with an eye towards the future of our planet, Solar-Powered Wind.

Most importantly, 2009 will see the release of my new LP, <'Ciao!' This album will surely cement my status as a Storytella and Funky Fella. 'Ciao!' is the fruit of 15 months of collaborations with such leading lights as Soulwax, Jesper Dahlback, Gonzales, Jori Hulkonnen, Jake Shears and James Murphy. An impressive roster, to say the least. What was that? What do you mean, 'What?' That sound you just made! It was like a snort, a dismissive snort. have you worked with, then, genius? Sting Jr.? That weirdo form Simply Red? Lady Sting? I am not impressed in the least. All in all, at the end of the day, I can't help but gaze into the reflecting pool and think to myself, 'I guess I really turned the night on, huh?' HONEY DIJON What more can be said about the fabulous Honey Dijon. She has rightly taken her place in the music world and one of the most exciting and unique talents today with her innovative and unique sound. She also boasts some impressive accolades from some of the biggest names in dance music from Danny Tenaglia to Derrick Carter. Based in NYC, born and bred in the Windy City, Honey is known for her unique take on the Chicago sound with inflections of the deep New York underground. In fact, Honey is one of the few dj’s in recent years to defy pigeon-holing. She draws from a wide repertoire of musical styles from old school Chicago House, disco, tech house, tribal, funk, soul, and R& B. She has graced the tables from Ministry of Sound London to Ushuaia Ibiza, Panorama Bar Berlin, Stereo Montreal and everywhere in between. She has also shared the decks with none other Danny Tenaglia, Derrick Carter, Green Velvet, The Martinez Brothers, Satoshi Tomiie, and Quentin Harris. Honey is also entering one of the most prolific times in her career not only as a DJ , but as a producer as well. Collaborating with such legendary vocalists Dajae and Celeda, Honey can count Toolroom Records, Nervous, Mile End, Stereo Productions, Deeperfect, Classic Recordings as a few of the labels she has released tracks on. She also runs her own label Digital Disco which has seen artists DJ Sneak, Jeremy Joshua, Derrick Carter, Luke Solomon and Orangemuse all contribute to it’s growing success. Honey has also remixed, along with her studio partner Sebastian Manuel, pop acts Cyndi Lauper, Casey Spooner, R.E.M, and Jessica 6 spreading her infectious sound to garner even more fans around the world. Honey’s recent gigs for such clients as Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Rick Owens and other global taste-makers is also making her one of the most sought after dj’s for top fashion events. Always inspired by new ideas and new music, Honey continues to push the envelope to create new and exciting projects. As Danny Tenaglia said when once asked what is his favorite form of dance music, he replied ‘I LIKE IT ALL”! What a great motto that suits Honey Dijon perfectly! DOC MARTIN Doc Martin’s live sets truly bring people together. The variation in his style of music is endless. What makes him so different from the rest? A unique ability to spin everything from deep house vocals that have much depth and meaning to us all in some way, to his funky tribal Bass lines mixed with threads of acid, his passive collection of classics rare records that are only to be heard at his gigs. Doc Martin has developed the respect as a house DJ that so many of us admire.
