Jamie Jones and Damian Lazarus at City Hall

In a world gone mad for hard-charging electro bangers and other fist-pumping, brain-bleed-inducing insanity, Jamie Jones is a breath of fresh air. His tracks and mixes work slower tempos and subtle grooves into brooding, slow-burning slices of understated funk. His style is based in deep house and classic techno, with the occasional element of '80s R&B or esoteric sonic experiment injected in for variety — perfect for late-night dance floors but entirely listenable at home, as well. He's released tracks for labels including Poker Flat, Cocoon and Get Physical, and his 2009 album, Don't You Remember the Future, was widely considered to be one of the best dance albums of the year. DJ magazine's "Best of British" awards last year tipped him as best producer and gave his track "Summertime" the nod as best single. Catch him this Saturday, February 20, at City Hall, with Damian Lazarus.
