On Eyepatch Recordings we released our Halo EP. A four tracker where techno meets tech house and progressive. We just like to mix things up I guess 😉

The release comes with four outstanding tracks, Halo, Freak, Just Believe and Soleil.

AstroNivo remix

For Omnis I joined hands with Soulboy and Chris Boshell to remix AstroNivo’s Vinortsa.

Press release:
Astronivo are an electronic phenomenon created by Guy Astrogano and Niv Konforty out of Israel. With a deep dedication to dance music and after a random meeting in Tel Aviv, these two musical talents have been inseparable; exploring and creating progressive minimal trance and house with amazing results. And now, after the successful release of Hasamba PART I and just in time for WMC, we give you Hasamba PART II.
Starting off with a few unreleased originals, Niminal and New Day are two techy numbers that do wonders for the head. Both bits are deep tech-house so have a good gander. You will be happy you did. Also on the package is a remix of Jamez & Soulboy remix of Hasamba. A bit harder edged, it is surely geared to the main room. And as an added bonus, we have three remixes of Vinortsa, an original AstroNivo number that set clubs up in smoke in 2009. Remixes in! clude Jamez & Boshell along with two Boshell & Loophole mixes ! garnerin g a dub and a rework, both of which are smooth steady groovers. Ah, we love it when the ears sing!

New Rough Cut release out soon

After 10 years, I revitalized my Rough Cut label. When sales went down in 1999 and I had to spend more time on my album on Mute / Future Groove, I stopped the label. With 18 releases from me and other artists, Rough Cut had grown into a real underground techno label, where experiments, distortion, techno and all kinds of styles came together. Last year I decided to restart the label. With new technologies and the digital age it has all become way to easy to release your own music. While everyone is bitching about all the crap that is been released, the crap just keeps on finding it’s way to the surface. Everyone is bitching about the clubscene and the mass amount of wannabee DJ’s, but no one seems to stop them from playing. These DJ’s even become arrogant enough to think they are actually good DJ’s…..damn….It’s just become to easy to participate. A shame, because not everyone is a producer or DJ. It’s the same if there would be a tool, which would make it very easy to plaster. Because there is still money to be made, everyone buys this tool and now think they can plaster. But no boys and girls…..please stop and start looking for another job and let the grown ups do their work. You are ruining the scene for people who do know what they are doing….

Back to Rough Cut records….I’m planning more releases this year and one or maybe two compilation albums. I already started working on remixes from the old catalogue.

Next release on Rough Cut is Jamez – Glock EP. With remixes from MRE and Fortress. I could say, these remixers are big names that had big releases on Superstition and Alphabet City in the nineties. And..that’s true, but Fortress and MRE are two aliases from me. I have over 40 aliases so I can choose 😉

So release soon, here a few snippets, enjoy:

Jamez – Glock (MRE’s Deep Edge Remix)

Jamez – Percize (Fortress Remix)

cheers everyone!

 

New EP, still unreleased

Last week I finished the last track for a new techno EP with the nice title Crime EP. With tracks like Witness, Alibi and Evidence. I really don’t know yet what to do with the tracks. I guess they are to hard for Repressure. It would be nice to release them on another label, so if anyone is interested…let me know 😉

Jamez – Witness

Jamez – Alibi

Jamez – Evidence

Enjoy the music!
Peace Out.

P.I.M.P. new release

There´s a new release out on Rough Cut Records. P.I.M.P. -Freak Out. I started this project back in 1995, together with H.P. Vince. Our first release on Touché records was The Light and is still a classic today. After that came more releases on Touché and later on Alien Records. In 2003 we released our last single, called Ekkovibe. now, in 2011, we’re back with a hard banging techno track on my own label Rough Cut. Remixes by me, me and me. Or in other words. The Jamez’s Burnout Remix. The Loophole’s Deep Remix and the J.Roks Vocal Remix. Loophole is my techno project on Touché Records and J.Roks is my elektro project. Sometimes it’s good to have 40 and more aliases 😉

Rough Cut release Under Construction EP

Also available is my new release on Rough Cut records. The Under Construction EP is a 5 track mini album with some new, some old and some reworked tracks. So is ‘Drop’ finally out and available. I made this track some 4 years ago and got a lot of response. Now reworked for 2011, it’s out and ready to be bought 😉

The whole EP is a combination of the old techno sound wrapped in a modern feel. Probably only interesting for real technoheads and not suitable for 125 bpm minimal tech fans….but hey….give it a listen and decide for yourself…
