Out 27th July on Crosstown Rebels Directed By Taluega Brothers Production: Colonel Blimp More info: www.crosstownrebels.com The second single from Jamie Jones’ forthcoming album is a dancefloor destroyer from the outer realms. Featuring live vocals from Egyptian Lover, ‘Galactic Space Bar’ pre-empts the release of one of the most anticipated debut albums for the current house music era. ‘Galactic Space Bar’ is a massive sonic-electro infused battle weapon, a creation that makes the body vibrate and the mind intoxicated with beats. Sparking wildly with sci-fi references, the two versions tie in the twisted vocals of veteran electro figure, Egyptian Lover. Egyptian Lover is a name synonymous with the US electro scene and released some of the earliest rap LPs. Coming to prominence in the early 80s, Egyptian Lover cuts like ‘Egypt, Egypt’ and ‘I Need a Freak’ were standards among club DJs, particularly in the breakdance scene. Early cuts such as ‘Computer Love’ and ‘Dance’ are routinely namechecked by a new generation of producers such as Autechre and I-F. As a member of Uncle Jamm's Army and the force behind a half dozen labels including Freak Beat and Egyptian Empire, Egyptian Lover is a true musical prodigy, still producing today and touring the globe. ‘Don’t You Remember The Future’ is the debut artist album from Jamie Jones, peering into the coming apocalypse with a body-shaking, teeth-grinding, tripped out fusion of sound on Crosstown Rebels. There are some talents that remain inconspicuous and then there are some you can’t ignore. Jamie Jones is the latter, quickly rising to superstar status in underground dance circles over recent years. Releases on Cocoon, Get Physical and BPitch have catapulted him to become a cult figure and he is widely admired for his true originality. From his debut single ‘Amazon’, to his latest anthem ‘Summertime’, his unique sound has won him worldwide audiences and this album has been widely anticipated as one to change the face of the current house music spectrum. With ‘Don’t You Remember The Future’ Jamie Jones delivers an album of “intergalactic techno house, where old school prince meets cybertron.” A seamlessly blended up-tempo mix filled with eerie and energetic moments. Listen, learn and live it. “The concept of the album is the idea that this is the year 2116, when music has become some kind of controlled means of manipulating humans, and the rebellion consists of artist like myself who are hiding underground creating sounds that explore outside that control.” Jamie Jones Creating a tongue in cheek reference to Jones’ sci-fi interests, ‘Don’t You Remember The Future’ merges his distinctive fiery groove into a mysterious journey of fresh and exciting sounds. Cinematic and spell-binding, this album sounds like no other, cautiously enveloping the listener and creating a new and ambitious approach to the traditional artist album.
An engagement video for Billy and Jamie. They were so fun during this shoot. You can really tell that they truly are Best Friends! Who says that opposites attract? These two are definitely not opposites. They have the same hobbies, thoughts, and even finish each others sentences. As Billy said "it's almost as if we are one". We are all looking forward to their wedding later in the year when they will become One!
