As a record label owner, producer, and member of band Hot Natured, Jamie Jones is quite the busy man. Then, if you throw in his near-endless global DJ schedule and the weekly night he runs at Ibiza’s DC 10, the only logical conclusion is that he hardly sleeps, or he has a secret twin.
Between all these engagements, he’s found the time to put together Moan & Groan, a vibrant new EP that’s landed on his friend Damian Lazarus‘ Crosstown Rebels label.
The enclosed single Moan & Groan oozes style and polish. The enveloping sub-bass grows atop filtered delays, and the sultry deep house swing we’re so fond of drives it all forward. Joining the single are two remixes of Tonight In Tokyo, a track that originally released last summer on Jamie’s album, Tracks From The Crypt. Diverging on their own sonic paths, the remixes bear little resemblance to one another or to the original. Where Breach hits the heart, providing an emotive and club-worthy piece, French icons Cassius went forth to create a lengthy and relaxing soundscape that’s lush in layers.
Each track’s unique vibe offers something a bit different. Grab them all on Beatport May 27.
