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.As a producer, Jones takes huge risks â€“ combining disparate sounds and grooves into tracks that achieve a rare characteristic in most house and techno, uniqueness. His off kilter, sometimes challenging but always enduring output has seen him release for XL Recordings, No.19, Turbo, Glimpse and Kindisch while releases for his beloved Hypercolour continue to impress critics and fans alike.Much as his personality is echoed in his work as a producer, his DJ workshares 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 religion like obsession - a fixation that has seen him regularly welcomed into Fabric, The End and countless other notable clubs over the years.A voracious autodidact and DIY man, much of Jones success can be attributed to his enthusiasm for â€˜getting involvedâ€™, whether running club nights, labels or producing â€“ he doesnâ€™t stop. Collaborative productions (Glimpse and Kris Wadsworth, no name but two), a new imprint (Initials) and the increasingly frequent Hypercolour club nights are just handful of Jonesâ€™ vices and weâ€™re all the better for them.What makes Alex Jones such an enticing prospect for any fan of music is his open mindedness and genuine passion that manifest themselves in unpredictable and exciting projects, so itâ€™s always worth keeping an eye on whatâ€™s nextâ€¦.

It's now a year since Tom gave up his day job and took up the music full-time. 12 months ago he removed his cape, stepped out of the charming and convincing Web Design manager alter-ego, bought a Â£20 Argos coffee filter, bean grinder and multi packs of Rizla; and has spent every week day since hunched over his synths in the studio filling up ashtrays at a rate of nots. It's not been a bad year either, from his 2 stand-out tracks Rivalry with Irony and Slip Slop Slap hitting monthly top 10 and top 30 respectively on Resident Advisor, a healthy year of gigging, taking his Live show to Fabric, Space - Ibiza, Mulletover, Freerotation and many other places in between (collecting a fine selection of club toilet photos along the way), being remixed by Soulphiction, Luke Solomon, Jamie Jones, Wolf and Lamb, Dave Aju etcâ€¦to completing his first Live compilation album (released early next year).
Having packed his boxes and swapped the rolling hills of Wales to move back to the red-brick terrace familiarity of his beloved Manchester. There's no more inspirational beach walks, now its Netto to grab some milk and get down to it.
From early back-bent sessions in a friends garage (containing a few rusty boxes and a four-track), Tom went on to study music technology at Salford University, exchanging most of his studying time for studio time along with persistently pestering the Orbit residents at the legendary Eastern Bloc records and promoting club nights. Since then he has developed his own characteristic sound, based on a philosophy of creating music with bollocks for the dance-floor but carrying enough 'essence' to be enjoyed in the home.
2012 is already shaping up to be a good year for Tom, a move to the capital and with more releases lined up for Hypercolour & Glass Table (plus a few very special things will be announced soon)
Keep your ears peeled for Demac's 'uniquely kinked grooves' over the coming monthsâ€¦

Less is definitely more when it comes to some artists and Hypercolour/Fear of Flying artist Laurie Shenoda is a good example of a producer who doesnâ€™t hurry what he does.
With just a handful of releases and remixes, the London-based artist has developed a sound which skews classic deep house tropes to make truly contemporary pieces of engaging but dance floor music. Initially becoming part of the tight knit Hypercolour family with a remix in the labelâ€™s early days, heâ€™s gone on to become one of the labelâ€™s key producers and his 2011 â€˜Shotsâ€™ EP broke into areas way beyond the usual house spheres, with Martyn, Konrad Black, Mosca and Deetron all being vocal advocates. Since then, productions for 1Trax, Save You and Fear of Flying have cemented the dry
witted producerâ€™s reputation while his adroit skills as a DJ have also seen him make
a mark on many a dancefloor.
2012 saw Shenoda take a leap into the unknown with a redoubled dedication to music and the results are currently forming into a release schedule the most veteran of producers would be envious of. First up, of course, is material for the Hypercolour/Glass Table imprints but beyond that heâ€™s typically tight lipped and modest
about whatâ€™s to come next, preferring the music to do most of the talking.
â€œIâ€™m shy, nervous and anxious about life,â€ says Youandewan. You can tell that by his music, be it the doleful, dubby remixes of Maya Jane Coles, Gerry Read or Sei A heâ€™s turned in, or the garage-tinged originals he has crafted for Skreamâ€™s Disfigured Dubs and Londonâ€™s non-specific bass hub, 2nd Drop. Of course, thereâ€™s also the notable â€œ1988â€ (the first thing he ever produced and which was never intended to see the light of day) and a remix of Duskyâ€™s â€œLost in Youâ€ which regularly gets spun in the dusty dungeons of Berlinâ€™s Berghain. But none of these really sum-up the reticent Leeds lad, for his loosely house and bass leaning sound is forever on the move.
As a DJ, Youandewanâ€™s cultured and considered sets have earned him a residency at Leeds night System, whilst heâ€™s also a regular guest at Wax: On and headlines intimate parties across the UK and Europe on a regular basis. Though he prefers hiding to over-hyping, for those who know, they knowâ€¦

With a father harbouring a deep interest in computer music and the burgeoning rave scene in the provincial South of England, Jamie Russell aka Hypercolourâ€™s Cedric Maison had a path mapped out for him pretty early on. Late nights listening to â€˜borrowedâ€™ mixtapes from his dadâ€™s collection indoctrinated the young lad with some of Chicago and Detroitâ€™s finest output.
Derrick May, Sneak, Todd Terry and Mood II Swing all figured in Russellâ€™s formative education, resulting in the usual unhealthy obsession with vinyl which defines those who now who were sucked into dance music in the 1980s and â€˜90s. This early influence paired up with teenage years of Sasha, Eddie Richards and Tyrant can still be heard in Jamieâ€™s sets â€“ hypnotic, groove based house with hints of techno which captivate as much as they motivate dancefloors.
Promoting nights was the next stage for the then Oxford based man and his Playground nights grew so quickly that it outgrew Oxford and London became its new home â€“ complete with an army of new regulars checking out the likes of Will Saul, Switch and Paul Woolford at the much lauded party. It was here where Russell rolled out the Cedric Maison moniker and took up the warm up reins, a role which is taken extremely seriously to this day. The night hit most of Londonâ€™s best venues in The Cross, 333, The Key and Egg before it closed its doors so attention could be focused elsewhere.
Cedric Maison is one of the founding fathers of the UK based imprint Hypercolour (as well as its sister-labels Glass Table, Space Hardware, Sneaker Social Club & Losing Suki) It is safe to say, all labels are going from strength-to-strength. Now well established as an A&R, Promoter and of course a DJ, Mr Maison is a regular fixture on the DJ circuit, not only with official Hypercolour events but with gigs across Europe. His Djing style is as forward thinking as it is timeless.
