Having had a remarkable start to 2016 with self-acclaimed “Illicit Behaviour” EP, Hot Creations & Paradise pacesetter Jamie Jones serves up his latest instalment via the Emerald City imprint.
Leading track Land Of The Giants flows into rich orchestral elements, followed up by prominent electronic wobbles before switching the pace – implementing a complex instrumental structure from the get go. Collaborating with Hero Twins (Timothy D Jones – brother to Jamie – and Tarhan Ozkan) for the release, they introduce faint, haunting vocals, paired with a low rolling and distorted bassline to create an underground masterpiece.
In contrast to the title release, The Shoplifter focuses solely on the electronic layers weaving throughout the record. The stripped back instrumental resonates a thumping bassline in turn with reverberating bleeps and a murmuring female vocal hook. The breakdown lends its ear to fierce, punchy orchestral chords before signing things off with echoing percussion – transcending Jamie’s “Lands Of The Giants” EP as one of his most experimental workings yet.
“Land Of The Giants” EP is forthcoming on May 13th exclusively to Beatport, with a full release on May 27th.
