Jamie Fielding strikes house gold in his first outing with Jamie Jones’ Hottrax imprint.

Out now is the new EP from Clacton-based DJ and Producer Jamie Fielding, out on Jamie Jones’ Hottrax label, featuring three welcome doses of late night house music. It’s almost ironic that Fielding was inspired to take up DJ-ing / producing by a set from Jones back in 2018.

The title track opens proceedings with these ghostly sounding vocals trading as it gets going, the bumping bassline and crisp percussion providing dancefloor facing trajectory. As it gradually unfurls so it pops and beeps, the vocals intertwining and the electronic hue glittering.

Follow on It’s A Vibe’, a collab with Daley G is more percussive in nature, these pads and slaps clicking and twitching away, as spots of bassline appear and then disappear, and echoey vocals cut in and out. Skittish and trippy, as it reveals its contents to the world so this low end bass pops and weaves, casting its eye towards acid, without walking directly into the light.

EP closer ‘Work It’ is minimal and in your face, the vocal hook repeated as it claps and spits and makes way for this almost elastic sounding bassline. Definitely file under ‘One to watch’. Closely.

Jamie Fielding ‘Mind 3 EP’ is out now via Hottrax.
