Having been previously released digitally and on CD back in 2009. We decided RSD 2022 was a great opportunity to release this seminal album on Red Transparent vinyl for the first time.
‘Don’t You Remember The Future’ is the debut artist album from Jamie Jones, peering into the
coming apocalypse with a body-shaking, teeth-grinding, tripped out fusion of sound on Crosstown Rebels.
There are some talents that remain inconspicuous and then there are some you can’t ignore. Jamie
Jones is the latter, quickly rising to superstar status in underground dance circles over recent years.
Releases on Crosstown Rebels Hot Creations, Defected, Cocoon, Get Physical and BPitch have
catapulted him to become a cult figure and he is widely admired for his true originality. From his debut
single ‘Amazon’, to his albums' anthem ‘Summertime’, his unique sound has won him worldwide
audiences and this album has been widely anticipated as one to change the face of current house
With ‘Don’t You Remember The Future’ Jamie Jones delivers an album of “intergalactic techno
house, where old school prince meets cybertron.” A seamlessly blended up-tempo mix filled with eerie
and energetic moments. Featuring ten brand new tracks from Jamie Jones, alongside this years
dance floor anthem ‘Summertime’ and the current ‘Galactic Space Bar’ - which features the vocals of
Egyptian Lover - the album’s twelve tracks are stitched together in an entangled web of beats and
bleeps, available digitally as separate edits.
Cosmic cuts such as ‘Mars’ and ‘Deep In The Ghetto’ create a new dimension through soaring synths
and idiosyncratic samples while the sonic dance floor weapons ‘Half Human’ and ‘This Is How’ release
the lethal disco master within Jamie Jones. The jacking, peak time moments of ‘Summertime’ and
‘Sand Dunes’ produce a current take on the early acid house sound and each step of this peculiar
story solidifies the strange notion of being within an undiscovered time and place.
‘Don’t You Remember The Future’ features the guest vocals of a variety of musical souls, checking off
some of Jones’ remote influences and revealing the greater versatility of this skillful artist. Norwegian
oddball duo Ost & Kjex feature on the anthem, ‘Summertime’.
The seductively charged ‘Absolute Zero’ unmasks the talent of London based DJ, producer and
vocalist Alison Mars (AKA Alison Marks), resulting in a beautifully epic and mysterious after hours
track, and the toxic ‘Galactic Space Bar’ features live vocals from one of the creators of the electro
scene, The Egyptian Lover, an old hero to Jamie Jones through early rap cuts like ‘Egypt, Egypt’ and
‘I Need a Freak .’ ‘Don’t You Remember The Future’ vinyl release is the album that brought the future
into the present.
