Alex Jones Mix

The co-creator of the influential Hypercolour, Glass Table, Losing Suki labels, Alex Jones, is a name that is rightly associated with unerring quality regardless of genre boundaries. A sharp wit and refusal to take life too seriously is contrasted by a cast iron reputation within electronic music that has seen the East-Londoner play the world over and release on some of the most lauded labels around like XL Recordings, No.19, Turbo, Hypercolour, Playhouse, and Kindisch.

Much as his personality is echoed in his work as a producer, his DJ work shares many of the same broad tropes. From beginnings as a resident at the legendary Big Beat Boutique alongside an emerging Radio Slave in the nineties. Searching for new and different music has become an almost religious like obsession. It has become a fixation that has seen him regularly welcomed into Fabric, The End, and countless other notable clubs over the years.

Much of Jones’ success can be attributed to his enthusiasm for getting involved. Collaborative productions with Kris Wadsworth; a new imprint, Initials; and the increasingly frequent Hypercolour club nights, makes this mindedness and genuinely passionate artist unpredictable and exciting.
