Camp Bisco Crusaders: G. Jones Artist Spotlight
Brace yourselves for Bisco, kids, because in roughly two months Camp is returning full throttle July 13-15 to the astounding acreage of Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA – a vast venue that adopted Camp Bisco in 2015. Hosted as always by our favorite jammin’ gents, The Disco Biscuits, this year will be one for the books yet again. The lineup covers all the bases in electronic music, both live bands/acts and DJs, featuring everything from dubstep to disco to jamtronica and more; and they aren’t done announcing performers just yet. There’s more to come, and there’s already so much to love about one of the longest-standing electronic music and arts festivals up north.
Lately, all eyes are on G. Jones (which is believed to stand for Grime master Jones rather than Greg Jones) lately, which comes at no surprise when you take into account the monstrous moves that he’s made over the course of the last few years. Establishing himself within the underground bass music scene has been no easy feat for the Santa Cruz native; surely no one knew the name G. Jones when he first began producing in 2012 – but oh have the times changed.
Releasing some of his very first becoming tracks such as “Ring the Alarm” unto SATURATE!RECORDS, a label that sees the likes of artists such as Sayer, Bleep Bloop and more, garnered the Cali bass-crusader heaploads of attention once word got out that he was slowly revolutionizing underground grime – and it didn’t stop there. The sound of G. Jones distinctly changed the game after the release of his first album, Mirage. Chock-full of weird, heavy, mind-distorting, and unmistakably mysterious bass music, that project was precisely the first staple in G. Jones distinguished and unique sound. From there, countless EPs and singles were being brewed up by the beat master, including plentiful works with one of the biggest in the scene, Bassnectar, producing bangers like “Mind Tricks” and “The Mystery Song“.
Big things continued to pop for Greg when he was noticed by the one-and-only DJ Shadow, an imminent character within the EDM scene and the owner of Liquid Amber Record Label. Jones and Shadow teamed up in more recent years to work together in a new project called Nite Skool Klik, and the result was dark, distorted, and often times discomforting – in the best ways possible.
In addition to wrecking fields at some of the largest festivals around such as Shambhala, Coachella, Counterpoint, Imagine and more, Jones has participated as support on nation-wide tours and is also currently embarking on his Visions Tour in light of his Visions EP. We can’t wait to see what Mr. Jones has in store for the throwdown on Montage, July 13-15 in Scranton, PA. Time and tickets are running out, so purchase your passes here.
