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, The Egyptian Lover. On the flip, ‘Snake Pit’ is a dangerous and glowing beast of a track, ducking and diving into abstract, peak-time dimensions and providing a fantastic take on modern Acid House.
Jamie Jones has become synonymous with innovation in house and techno, reaching into fresh influences to form a new and unique sound to his music. His debut album ‘Don’t You Remember The Future’ out in August 2009, takes a step forward for the current generation of producers and will be a source of inspiration for many that listen. His recent single ‘Summertime’ shot straight to the top of Beatports top 100 download chart and was hailed “Anthem of the Year” by virtually everyone in dance music.
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.
