Making a return to his own label with his first solo EP on Hot Creations for the first time since 2010, Jamie Jones has released the four-track Planets, Spaceships EP. Not only has the co-founder been at the helm of one of the most revered labels in dance music, but he’s also become a huge part of the dance music supergroup Hot Natured alongside Lee Foss, Luca C, and Ali Love.
Jamie’s newest solo offering delivers four unique tracks which have all been wreaking havoc in his sets around the world this summer. The title track of the EP, which features Digitaria vocalist Daniela Caldellas (who has an album planned for Hot Creations next year), utilizes addictive vocals alongside Jamie’s production expertise. The conclusive three tracks round out the EP with deeper and darker grooves while staying clear of the vocals which highlighted the title track.

Hot Natured’s debut album Different Sides of the Sun is due out September 2.
They wouldn’t be the first DJs to get big off of singles, but deep house supergroup Hot Natured are ready to remedy that situation with the release of their first album. Having already toured and produced a handful of hits together, Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Luca C and Ali Love have 12 brand new tracks that will be released alongside three familiar singles on Different Sides of the Sun. To celebrate, the quartet has released “Isis (Magic Carpet Ride)” as the first single, an Egyptian-flavored hot house groove. Speaking to Mixmag, Jamie Jones said the group went into the album with 45 songs and walked away with 30 to spare, meaning that their first album certainly won’t be the last. Eager fans still have a bit longer to wait, however: the full album will be released September 2nd. Click below the break for the tracklist, and head to iTunes to pre-order.

As co-heads of the acclaimed Hot Creations imprint, Jamie Jones and Lee Foss have been revealing their abilities outside the world of producing and DJing, showing they have an ear for A&R as well. Montreal-based Greg Pidcock hooked up with Jones and Foss just a year ago, and since then has been busy working on a full length album for the label. “Blame Game” shines light on Pidcock’s production abilities, laying out melodic deep house grooves that coincide with just the sound Hot Creations has been championing in recent years. Richie Hawtin-backed Minus artist Hobo provides two remixes dubbed ”Shamed” and “Named.” The two reworks breathe life into the original, adding an upbeat boost on “Shamed” and a darker techno guise on “Named.” The Blame Game EP is set to release June 17th.
