Over the last seven years, Jamie Jones has gained notoriety for pioneering a unique sound. By way of the innovative Hot Creations label, Jones has paved the way for all that is house, techno, and disco — oftentimes seamlessly intersecting the three. Now, 100 releases later, Hot Creations is hotter than ever before. To celebrate the occasion is a huge EP from the man himself.
The illustrious EP kicks off with “Sound of Music,” an ultimate end-of-summer tune. Albeit, the track’s a cover version, originally released via Nookie, Jones’ take features Katy B on vocals, which ultimately creates the perfect lead into a largely melodic dance-floor-ready body of work that follows.
“Kooky Chords,” “Positive Pressure,” and “Parallel Universe” are each deeply infectious tunes, oozing fat basslines and enticing vocal cuts. After listening to the EP, which is rich in the very elements that have pushed Hot Creations to the forefront of the techno community, it seems appropriate that Jones is the one to deliver its 100th release.
