Just one day after announcing that both Jamie Jones and Verboten would be curating stages at next summer’s Mysteryland festival in upstate New York, the two techno heavyweights joined forces, coming together at Verboten’s Brooklyn outpost for an extended set of music from the Hot Creations label head. Fresh off a string of highly successful club nights in Ibiza under his Paradise residency, Jones made his way to the Brooklyn club for the first time, throwing down a special set that warmed up the crowd despite the frigid temperautres outside.

Regarded as a pioneer of the house music scene, Jones pushes the boundries of minimalist techno into sexy and soulful grooves. His sets are always jam packed, whether at dance music festivals like Tomorrowland, his Hot Creations/Paradise event during Miami Music Week, or his legendary sets at Burning Man, so getting to dance within the confines of Verboten felt a little extra special. Jones knows how to work a crowd, and has built up an army of devoted fans, loyal to his label and awaiting the next releases from the groundbreaking taste maker.

This Friday night set was predictably awesome from Jones; a Facebook update earlier in the day showed him digging through crates at a local record store, finding some hidden gems to beef up his extra long set with swayed all over the place from Hot Creations standards to tracks that he most likely found in those crates earlier in the day.

Verboten’s top notch soundsystem is, as always, a joy to listen to, and is one of the few places in the city that can do a superstar like Jamie Jones justice. Jones has a longstanding relationship with the Verboten crew, so I’d expect more collaborations between the venue and producer in the future.
