Santa Cruz producer G Jones has captivated young audiences acrossNorth America with his playful and expansive take on broken beat dance music. His live show weaves an ever expanding catalog of heavy knocking hip hop beats, cross-genre 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.
This is music for sound systems; hard-hitting beats designed to turn the dance floor on its head with meticulous arpeggios, bombastic horn blasts, soaring melodies, and sub bass explosions that have already made their way into the live sets of legendary artists such as DJ Shadow.
G Jones has recently garnered attention from several highly acclaimed producers including Bassnectar, with his beats appearing in mixes by Pretty Lights, Zeds Dead and DJ Shadow on BBC's "Diplo and Friends" program. After tearing up the North American touring circuit this summer, with appearances at festivals such as Coachella, Lightning In A Bottle, What The Festival and Shambhala (Canada), G Jones continues to generate music dosed with an undeniable sense of freedom and fun moving into Fall 2014, with a forthcoming track on the next SMOG compilation due in September, and a full touring schedule that will bring him across the US and Canada.
