JONES

FRIDAY 1 JULY

JONES

Google a synonym of hardstyle classics and a picture of Jones' smile face will appear on your screen! ;) He has become so synonymous with those early sounds that when you mention the era, you mention Jones. Trends are fickle things - they engulf a culture in what seems like an instant, demand conformity in their wake, and promise popularity as a prize. Those who choose to scold them, instead staying true to their roots, may be left behind as the musical landscape evolves. This is the fate of many, but in this particular story, Jones has proudly held out to keep the flames of the years 2005 - 2012 burning brightly. The uplifting atmosphere of those early years was what first attracted Jones to hardstyle, and to this day he enjoys those songs more than anything that followed. He knows that more and more people share the same opinion, and his mission is to help them relive those precious memories from the early days. His sets are driven by nostalgia, a keen ear for the right classic at the right time and an energetic performance behind the turntables. This unique dynamic has allowed him to play at some of the biggest parties such as Defqon.1, Q - base, WiSH Outdoor, Intents Festival and X - Qlusive Holland XXL, just to name a few. Not so long ago, this impressive list was supplemented with a striking performance on 'Voor Was Alles Beter'. Everyone remembers where it all started, and those infectious sounds of classic hardstyle is where it started for most of us. Jones is quickly becoming the talisman for this past but cherished era, and as more and more people long for those early sounds, he'll be the man to provide them! †
