Yoda would say “fresh air, a breath of it G Jones is.” With the onslaught and saturization of big room EDM “culture” these days, it’s great to experience a fresh, original and ego-free sound emerge from the West Coast. Liberated from the constraints of a specific bass genre and nerdy enough to appease the haters out there, G Jones has built a solid career based on music. Solid. Fucking. Music. No gimmicks, hype, bought likes or followers, this Jedi’s beats are fresh, his bass lines are enveloping, his kicks knocks and the best part is his music stays psychedelic while giving the feel like of watching a live experiment onstage.

His homebase of Santa Cruz is symbolic of his sound. It’s a city full of juxtaposition: where the land meets the water, fog and sunshine, hot and cold, wealthy and poor, rednecks and tree-huggers. No surprise that Bassncectar also emerged from this location, an artist also known for his balance of heavy and beautiful (his last album called Noise Vs Beauty). Also no surprise he has been dropping G Jones tracks for years, tapped him to remix his “Don’t Hate the 808” and selected him to open his last NYE360º show in Nashville with Tipper.

But we’ll just let the music speak for itself…listen to this mixtape.

Reno and Tahoe are getting two special nights of G Jones February 18th and 19th, respectively. We wouldn’t be surprised if G Jones outgrows these venues by the time 2016 rolls around. He is one artist that we can say 100% deserves it.

Opening both nights are two extremely talented up and comers: Oakland’s SAYER and Truckee’s CharlestheFirst. PRSN will make a rare area appearance, closing out Reno’s show and playing the free Crystal Bay afterparty in the Red Room with DJ Professor Stone from Fresno.
