Jamie Jones has done it all. Not only is he renowned for his pioneering music; he is 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 an iconic sound that paved the way for a warmer, more melodic, deeper side of techno to emerge. Hot Creations has also launched the careers of numerous artists such as Patrick Topping and wAFF. 2011 was the year that Jamie and Hot Creations took over. Continuously powering out hits since it’s inception in 2010 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. 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. Taking elements of the grooves Jamie has long championed and forging them with strong vocals and smooth synth melodies into a live act, Jamie looked to challenge conventions with this new direction. The first Hot Natured single, “Benediction,” reached the top 40 in the UK in 2013 off their debut album "Different Sides Of The Sun”.
In 2012 and 2015 sublabels HOTTRAX and Emerald City were founded. Under Jones’s musical direction, both labels have already seen their releases hit #1 on Beatport.
Much of Jones’s career and life spawned from his love of the magical island of Ibiza. First venturing to Ibiza from his hometown of Caernarfon in North Wales in 1998, he has since spent every summer there. He became a resident at his favorite and arguably, the most renowned underground 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 there. This success has meant that Paradise has hosted stages at some of the world's biggest electronic music festivals, such as Tomorrowland (Belgium) Parklife (Manchester) Movement (Detroit) BPM (Mexico) to name a few.
Always encouraging new talent, in 2016, Jones founded Forward Motion Artists, 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.
