Jamie Jones has done it all. Not only is he renowned for his pioneering music; he is also a founder of one of the most successful independent labels in the game, Hot Creations, a member of the commercially successful band, Hot Natured, and creator and director of the esteemed global event series, Paradise.
Jones and his label, Hot Creations, have been credited with creating a distinctive sound that paved the way for a warmer, more melodic, side of techno to emerge. Hot Creations has also launched the careers of numerous artists such as Patrick Topping, Richy Ahmed and more.
2011 was the year that Jamie and Hot Creations took over. Hot Natured’s “Forward Motion,” featuring vocalist Ali Love was a popular track, 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. Jamie was voted the number one DJ of 2011 by Resident Advisor.
In 2012, Jamie and Lee Foss evolved their project, Hot Natured, into a full band, adding Ali Love and Luca C as full time members. The first Hot Natured single to be released, ‘Benediction’, reached the top 40 in the UK in 2013, and was followed up by their debut album ‘Different Sides of the Sun’.
In 2012 and 2015 Hot Creations launched two sublabels, HOTTRAX and Emerald City. Under Jones’s musical direction, both labels have already seen their releases hit #1 on Beatport.
Much of Jones’s career and life grew from his love for Ibiza. First venturing to the island from his hometown of Caernarfon in North Wales in 1998, he has since spent every summer there. He became a resident at his favourite club DC-10 in 2006. In 2012, he started his own weekly party at DC-10, and his event series Paradise has now completed five wildly successful seasons at there. Paradise has now gone on to host stages at some of the world’s biggest electronic music festivals; Tomorrowland in Belgium, Parklife in Manchester, Movement Detroit and BPM Mexico to name a few.
Always encouraging new talent, Jones founded Forward Motion Artists in 2016: a management company for new up and coming artists.
Jones continues to tour globally and play some of the best venues and events in the world. He’s a regular at festivals such as Timewarp, Burning Man, Coachella and Glastonbury, as well as top clubs such as Fabric, Warung and Womb.
