Biography

Jamie Lloyd - DJ / producer / singer / songwriter

Jamie Lloyd burst onto the scene in 2006 with his refreshing debut ‘Trouble Within’ (Future Classic) receiving critical acclaim; local tastemakers praising it as one of the best electronic albums of the year, and drawing comparisons to Matthew Herbert and Jamie Lidell. Influences such as Arthur Russell and Matthew Herbert underscore Jamie's love of blending electronic with organic and 'found' sounds, creating his distinct musical palette.

October 2009 saw the release of Jamie’s second original album, ‘Beware of the Light’, presenting his far-from-linear take on dance music in a coherent yet diverse body of work. While songs such as the album’s title track show Jamie’s knack for classic songwriting, his lush vocal ability and leftfield pop sensibility, the bulk of the album is written with his angular live club shows in mind. Computer game disco aesthetics with techno energy, the album is continuously shifting gears, ebbing and flowing but always building. A plethora of fat squelchy bass and bizarre found sounds like the recordings of asteroids crashing into the earth on ‘Fire Flies’ combine with adept musicality that keeps things dense and interesting.

"Beware of the Remixes" is a 12" collection of remixes from Beware of the Light, given the remix treatment by Matthew Herbert, Mark E, Tuff City Kids, and Alex Barck & Christian Prommer - in stores now. Jamie's earlier tracks have also been remixed by luminaries such as Quarion, Brennan Green, Trickski, Zwicker, Soultourist, and Drumpoet.

Jamie's Live performances are uptempo electronic sets of his original works with vocal manipulation, live loops, live instrumentation, beat programming, sampling and arrangements, and he has performed Live on an Australian national tour and at Parklife Festival in Sydney (40,000 attendees). His live set was recorded for Red Bull Music Radio, along with an interview, and this is to be published in the coming months.

Jamie has recently moved to Berlin, Germany, to further his DJing career in Europe. As a DJ he spans many genres, playing techno, house, downtempo, space hip hop etc, with his broad musical taste informing each set and making it unique.

"[Jamie Lloyd] takes 80s George Clinton and Arthur Russell-style funk and disco and welds it onto their more recent prodigy - say, Matthew Herbert and Metro Area - to create big thwacking bass lines that rub up against squirming micro-edited bass frequencies, and most impressively, languid, intoxicating songs." Matthew Levinson / Cyclic Defrost
