Jamie Jones and Lee Foss much admired Hot Natured production project expands into a new label series of original material - Hot Creations whose debut release from the masterful Jamie Jones is the sublime Ruckus EP.
Ruckus EP contains exactly what Jamie Jones have come to be loved for an infectious fusion of jacking disco with strains of cosmic funk. The title track is his biggest cut since last years Summertime and the first solo release since his debut solo album.
Ruckus is a dancefloor friendly hybrid of sci-fi samples, bone-shaking basslines and other worldly atmospheres. The vinyl package also unleashes a Discoid Dub that strips away the vocals of the original, leaving the bare groove to do the talking. Say What? stands its own ground with deep bouncing bass and rhythmic loops. This is party music with wide appeal delivering hooks in the bass, harmony and rhythm. The final track of the EP inches closer to his analogue sound - Masterplans is made for elated moments, building energy levels through its intoxicating sonic journey. Jamie explains, With Ruckus EP I aimed to fuse dubby disco, house and old school electro into one twisted and edgy package.
Jamie Jones seeps a whole load of funk into a current electronic sound, creating novelty music that causes a ruckus in every environment. He released his award winning debut artist album on Crosstown Rebels last year, gaining worldwide attention and capturing the WMC conference with his huge Summertime smash. Named Best Producer by DJ Mag last year, his audiences have long since reached boiling point.
