Marquee Presents Jamie Jones
One of the world’s leading figures of the international underground, the UK’s renowned Jamie Jones will be joining Marquee for two very special cross-country events this February. On Friday, February 7th, Jamie will be kicking off Fashion Week in New York with his long-awaited headlining set at Marquee New York. On Saturday, February 15th, he’ll be bringing his sound out west for a late-night appearance at Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas. This is the first time both Marquee venues have collaborated to feature an underground artist like Jamie Jones, underlying Marquee’s commitment to presenting music-forward, cutting-edge artists across the country.
Named Resident Advisor’s #1 DJ of 2011, Jamie Jones is one the most important artists making forward-thinking music today. For the last few years, he has pushed forward a dynamic fusion of classic deep house with a contemporary techno edge that has rippled throughout the entire music industry. He is the co-founder of Hot Natured, his acclaimed live band, which released its debut album “Different Sides of the Sun” in September 2013, featuring the breakout singles “Benediction” and “Reverse Skydiving.” He runs the Hot Creations record label (and its HOTTRAX subsidiary), which has been instrumental in breaking new talent through a steady stream of beloved dance floor releases.
As a DJ, Jamie Jones has had a huge impact globally. For years, he was one of the lead residents at the infamous Circoloco party at DC-10 in Ibiza, before establishing his own “Paradise” night there in 2012. He enjoys an endless touring schedule, including nearly every major city and festival around the world, with notable 2013 appearances stateside at Coachella, Ultra in Miami, EDC Las Vegas, and the US debut of TomorrowWorld to name a few. To add to his achievements, Rolling Stone magazine named Jamie’s “Live at Timewarp” as the #2 “Best DJ Mix of 2013” in their year-end summary. Jamie’s two shows at Marquee mark his first major nightclub appearance in New York in several years, and his return to Las Vegas since his buzzed-about set at EDC in June.
Since Marquee New York re-opened in January of last year following a stunning transformation, the club’s weekly Friday night parties have featured a wide-array of leading underground artists. Notable names including Dubfire, Lee Burridge, Claude VonStroke, the Martinez Brothers and many more have all DJed to rapt dance floors of music lovers and nightlife aficionados, and the club wrapped up 2013 with an unprecedented 9-week residency featuring Marco Carola and his Music On events. Curated by the club’s Friday residents Sleepy & Boo, Marquee has a great lineup planned for 2014 Fridays already, with Jamie Jones’ debut being one of the standout events. In October of 2013, Marquee Nightclub in Las Vegas created a huge buzz by welcoming the techno legend Richie Hawtin for a late-night set, showcasing a different side of the nightlife experience that the venue is known for. Jamie Jones will be the second DJ to take the decks for a late-night journey on the Marquee dance floor, with more to come throughout the new year.
