Filsonik, one of New York’s finest old school underground DJ/producers is down to make his debut on the illustrious Hot Creations imprint after his regular appearances at Circo Loco DC10 and close relationship with the Martinez Brothers brought him into orbit with Jamie Jones et al. A staple in Jamie’s sets at the moment and always creating a major impact on the dance floor, ‘Dogfish’ is testament to Filsonik’s nuanced production skills and flair for a killer groove and a ridiculously infectious swagger. Ever in demand, master remixer Jamie draws upon his classic persuasion for free styling wonkiness and rowdy basslines on the B side. Warping the origibal into darker territory and bleeping the beats into submission. Expect to hear bother version everywhere this summer.
Filsonik career as a producer started in 2006 under the wing of New York’s veteran house DJ Timmy Regisford of Club Shelter, a legendary weekly house night that ran for fifteen years. Co-productions with Regisford on Shelter’s label Unrestricted Tracks and Restricted Tracks showcased Filsonik’s sound. Fast forward to 2014 and Filsonik is still a close collaborator with fellow NYC Puerto Rican artists, uniting with The Martinez Brothers and Point G for the massive ‘What’s The Point?’ on Ever Lasting LOVE.
Jamie Jones, label head of the pioneering Hot Creations imprint, mastermind behind the decks and one fourth of the Hot Natured is still on top of his game and one of the best loved DJs on the circuit. After being voted as number one DJ in the world in 2012 by Resident Advisor, running the extremely popular Paradise events, now in their third season at DC10 Ibiza and tirelessly touring the globe, Jamie Jones is still the boss and will soon be seeing in the 50th release with something special. Watch this space.
