Jack Eye Jones is a name we have been hearing with increasing regularity of late. Very much a modern dance music success story, the Scotsman has used new media to build a loyal following – most notably through his Ibiza Sessions Radio Show – which has topped the iTunes podcast charts and had over one million downloads to date.
He recently recorded a cover mix for DJ Mag USA, has been supported by Avicii and most recently Tiesto has remixed his new single ‘Playground’. Very much an artist in ascendance, we thought it was time to introduce him properly!
THE TRACK Tiesto’s remix of ‘Playground’ will be the record that propels Jack Eye Jones into the big leagues. With over 100,000 plays in the first 4 days of being upload, the full-throttle EDM monster is destined for the Beatport top 10s.
THE MASH UP
In addition to his radio show, Jack Eye Jones first made his name through a series of bootlegs, which he gives away free on his Soundcloud Page. Here is his ‘Jack’ inspired rework of Martin Garrix’s ‘Animals’.
The latest edition of Jack Eye Jones’ Ibiza Sessions Radio Show with the chat removed. Let the music do the talking.
The rest of 2014 will see Jones hopping between his Ibiza home and the UK for a series of club and festival dates including Creamfields and Colours. He is also in the process of applying for a US Visa. “It’s exciting times” he tells us, “I’m coming!”
