DJ style: House
Best known for: “Nasty house music."
One of last year's DJ Mag cover stars, Jamie Jones is a DJ who shines brightly in the scene having worked his way up from the London underground club circuit into peak-time festival headliner. DJ, producer, label boss of Hot Creations, and the man behind the Paradise parties worldwide, Jones does it all. Paradise returned to Amnesia for another exceptional season in Ibiza this summer, this time with a tropical jungle concept, Night Of The Jaguar, where Jamie played alongside the likes of Marshall Jefferson, Joseph Capriati, Apollonia, Loco Dice and many more. Hot Creations has been on a roll too, firing out releases from the usual suspects such as wAFF, Amine Edge and DANCE as well as budding new producers like Cassi and Manda Moor. This year he’s been working hard in the studio on his next album that will be released next year, plus some exciting collaborations on the way. “I had a second baby daughter, so have been spending a lot of time with my family and prioritising raising my children, so a little less touring in summer 2023,” Jones tells DJ Mag. This year he also launched a new project, Other World, a semi-live show revealed for the first time at Coachella.
