Esteemed artist Jamie Jones is set to drop an EP titled Handy Work on his Hot Creations imprint this September.
The release features three standout tracks that emulate Jamie’s distinct production skills and ear for the dancefloor.
“Handy Work came about at the end of a studio session after working for hours on another song, I had a little jam playing with some classic diva samples I’d found. I always loved this sample used by the legend Junior Vasquez in 1994. I literally made the first version in about an hour, and when I played it out I knew I had something, the crowd reaction was killer. This track is a simple party anthem, to welcome back the parties!” – Jamie Jones
Title track Handy Work sets the tone with sharp percussion, prominent vocal stabs and a wonky, driving bassline. Next up, Mind Meld With Spock has a stumbling groove, with hypnotic keys and a striking clap. Last up, Sunday In Paris is a blissful number, perfect for the sunrise hours with emotive and elevating chords.
A globally respected and highly accomplished artist, label boss at the seminal Hot Creations, founder and curator of the worldwide Paradise event series and member of cross-genre band Hot Natured, Jamie Jones has achieved iconic status in the electronic music world. A trendsetter and seasoned tastemaker, the Welsh dance music superstar pioneered his own distinct sound, drawing on his deep knowledge and experience to cultivate DJ sets that weave through a range of diverse, complementary styles selected to energise and enchant the dance floor.
