Some more info about Jamez:
Dutch producer Jamez has had a hand in more good records than most of us have had hot dinners. Apart from the by-no-means trifling matter of co-producing my favourite ever house record 51 Days Paper Moon hes also been at the birth of the Trancesetters, the splendidly-named Tata Box Inhibitors, P.I.M.P., Loophole, Amfibian, Mindfunk and an ever-expanding list of inventively-spelt production credits. Youd wonder, looking at the fellows discography, whether he ever got any kip (weve been assured by his family that he does).
Jamez, for those that havent been paying attention, was part of a Dutch triumvirate the other two being Dobre and DJ Zki that helped transform European house music in the early 90s. Working closely with Dutch outfit Touché Records, they produced a series of consistently great singles of wildly differing styles ranging from the jazzy (Jamshed), deep (51 Days) and the acclaimed harder style of Tata Box Inhibitors and Trancesetters. While most UK DJs looked to the US for new records, oddly, lots of American DJs Danny Tenaglia being a particular fan championed this new European style (Underworlds Darren Emerson was also an early supporter of Touchés releases).
Like many a young European, Jamez was turned on to dance music via the burgeoning rap scene of the eighties, before hooking up with Dobre who, as luck would have it, had a small home-studio. Experiments in dance ensued. A meeting with DJ Zki at a radio station completed the Three Musketeers line-up. Early releases came out through fellow countryman Robin Jaydee Albers First Impressions label, but it was through Touché Records started with Dobre that Jamez and his cohorts gained international recognition. Both 51 Days mournful Paper Moon and Trancesetters heavy-hitting The Search were massive New York club hits. Plenty of others were staples in DJs boxes around the world, probably because Jamez has mastered the art of syncopated and punchy beats, mellifluous keyboards and catchy hooks. Soulful dance music, in other words. As a remixer, Jamez is no slouch, either, having turned in superb mixes of Paperclip Peoples The Climax, X-Press 2s strident The Sound and a stunning rerub of Der Dritte Raums Alienoid, transforming it into a hypnotically textural house cut.
