Biography of Jamie Jones
Moniker(s) / Hot Natured (with Lee Foss)

Widely regarded as a leader of the new sound of house, Jamie Jones is renowned for his innovative music; his cross genre band, Hot Natured; and his pioneering label, Hot Creations. In a short time, he 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 NR. 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.
