2015 marks a new departure for one of Scotland’s most loved artists Jack Eye Jones. Following a number of eminently successful years producing mashups and edits with the support of everyone from Avicii to EDX as well as having his own tracks remixed by the likes of TiŽsto, Blasterjaxx and even Laidback Luke, this October saw the release of his very first artist album. Crashing into the Apple Music Dance Chart at number 3 the success of ‘Summer Nights’ has been clear for all to see. The product of an extended period of time spent in his LA based studio the album (which reached number 15 in the BBC UK album dance chart on October 18th) is a collection of futuristic electronic music incorporating influences from a plethora of sources across the electronic spectrum. Alongside that, the Scot's ever present radio show Ibiza Sessions continues to go from strength to strength topping the UK iTunes chart regularly and reaching millions of listeners around the world.
A showcase of everything that fans have come to expect from this dynamic producer Summer Nights features a number of very special vocal performances including Hana (daughter of Pat Benetar) Toni Etherson, Sirine Gene and Scottish star (and former X Factor runner up) Nicky McDonald, All in all a formidable lineup of artists to compliment his energetic creations. The album also features remixes from some of the world’s biggest electronic artists including TiŽsto, Laidback Luke and Blasterjaxx.
This October saw the release of the very first single off the album in Misbehavin. The track undoubtedly represents one of the most accessible vocal efforts ever to emerge from the Jack Eye Jones studio with a catchy hook delivered by koli to devastating effect and a driving bassline that could only be the work of the enigmatic Scot. If ever there was a track to sum up the summer feeling that permeates the first ever artist album from the LA based producer than this is it.
