#interviewoftheweek FROM PLAYSTATION TO LOGIC WITH JAMIE JONES Growing up in a small Welsh town, Jamie Jones’ taste in music didn’t quite match that of his peers. With a passion for house music from an early age and a stack full of vinyls from the local record shop, his interests were a far cry from the accepted Brit pop phenomenon of the time. But fast forward a few years and you’ll see that this difference didn’t exactly do him any harm. Credited with creating a new sound in house and techno the DJ has, in less than a decade, revolutionised the genre and paved the way for newer, more experimental ideas in music. Our interview of the week was once again a pleasure ahead of Jamie Jones's much anticipated show at Jenja tonight.

With two levels including an upstairs restaurant and a cozy outdoor section just a part of the Track 9 layout, lots of convenient parking, all sorts of artistry while its hard not to notice their great little vinyl collection when you walk in. Jalan Dewi Sri's latest edition has something for everyone whether your after some early warm up drinks, getting your midnight dance floor moves on or looking for the after-party.
