Props to Jamie Jones for the upcoming Fabric compilation. The mix comes out on the 24th September. Stay tuned for a review of the album—we’re pretty excited to have a listen. Jones has done a lot over the last 4-5 years with this Hot Natured guise and Hot Creations label and is definitely earning all praise currently being bestowed upon him. This Fabric compilation comes as he rides the crest of a tidal wave of popularity for him and his Crosstown Rebels and Visionquest crew (speaking of Crosstown and Visionquest, if you’re in Los Angeles, don’t forget about Get Lost LA on 8/27) that are forming a new cluster of stars.
Back to Fabric, here’s Jones on the club…
I went to Fabric first in 1999. It had been open two weeks and I’d just moved to London so I went with my best friend. We got there and there was a huge queue all the way round the corner. Coming from Wales we just had shirts on and no jackets in November so we went to the front of the guestlist queue and I managed to catch a glimpse of the list and saw Chris C + 1. So we got in free VIP first time at fabric at 18. It was brilliant. I think we saw Dave Angel, stood in room 2 going crazy, I was a lot more innocent back then.
Also worth mentioning is the up coming album on Crosstown Rebels, as well as a Hot Natured album with Lee Foss and Ali Love via his own Hot Creations label.
I think it might be hard to stay still and here’s to hoping that’s true—we’re loving what this guy has been doing. His evolution, the artists he’s surrounded by, his style and concepts—this guy is definitely shaping the current era of electronic music and will no doubt continue to for many years to come.
It’s important to have something people can identify with. Someone said to me recently the good thing about mine, and the whole Hot Natured style is it appears to a wide age range, because the music is never too hard. It’s about having fun with music and never serious. We’re about enjoying quality music, having fun with your friends and living and breathing the party and the music together.
Cheers to that.
