G Jones

Santa Cruz producer G Jones has captivated audiences all across North America and Europe with his playful and expansive take on broken beat dance music. His live show weaves an ever expanding stockpile of heavy knocking hip hop beats, cross- genre sound experiments, and expansive melodic riffs in a way that illuminates and drives the dance floor. With his irreverent attitude toward unimaginative EDM, this young producer pushes the envelope and blurs the lines between musical styles while maintaining a meticulous balance of minimal space and heavy bass.
G Jones blew the roof off of the end of last year with a huge official remix of Bassnectar – Don’t Hate the 808, and the release of his own highly anticipated collaboration EP Diamonds alongside legendary unground producer The Widdler. These remarkable collaborations all came on the heels of G Jones’ own two enormous and critically acclaimed EPs: Ring the Alarm (available on Saturate Records) and Eyes
EP (available on Robox Neotech). Each of these offerings have earned a comfortable home in dj sets in the past year. His instantly recognizable, audacious energy enhancers
represent a fresh brand of premium West Coast bass music that has been embraced by a remarkable variety of ecstatic audiences and dance floor enthusiasts in a range of venues from clubs to arenas extending well beyond the areas of Northern California from where they originated in just the short time since G Jones began releasing his creations just a short time ago.
His live performances and recorded offerings weave a collection of trans-genre experimentation with an brand of infectiously rhythmic and monstrous sub bass in a way that dominates on the dance floor while simultaneously managing to capture the approving head-nods of even the most discerning musical aficionados. His playfully energetic style is instantly recognizable through his signature combination of musically conscious spacial experimentation that is always effortlessly juxtaposed with formidable doses of party throbbing bass, pulverized vocals, and some unpredictable element that morphs and explodes into an irresistible party anthem that leaves listeners with their finger poised over the repeat button as soon as the sound stops. G Jones continues to garner the attention and support of some of the most highly acclaimed producers active today; with his beats appearing on mixes from Pretty Lights, Zeds Dead and DJ Shadow on BBC’s “Diplo and Friends” program, to Bassnectar and beyond. This support has quickly translated into ongoing and developing collaboration projects that fans will surely be clamoring to experience in the coming year.
