Melbourne Up & Comer Jamie Hall Remixes Bombs Away!

Thursday, April 10, 2014

jamie-dj-vanityMelbourne, Australia- Home to many amazing producers and their notably bouncy sound. Jamie Hall, at only 19, is making strides into the growing population of bounce producers with pushing out "quality Melbourne sound tracks uniquely as possible." Jamie Hall isn't a name everyone will know because he is only one year in the producer game. Starting out DJing at age 17 (following an iconic underage visit to a nightclub), Jamie has played some of the biggest clubs in Melbourne and the Gold Coast. If you're a fan of the Melbourne Bounce or Bombs Away and their quirky sound, this will be a fun remix for you. jamiedj_wahthursdaysConfident, chunky bass with funky beats is what the game is all about, and Jamie Hall isn't phoning it in! The acapella fits perfectly over the bass line with that groovy rhythm of old-school hip hop. "Everybody get stupid, stupid!" and I'm sure they will when they hear the drop. Melbourne is known for fun and playful drops and Jamie doesn't disappoint with his in-your-face saw bass similar to TJR "What's Up Suckas" and The Chainsmokers "#selfie" along with a string of tracks from Deorro and others. The idea of the bounce isn't one of elitism, to quote "Booyeah!", "All we care about is the party, keeping them good vibes, good vibes in the air now!" Many elements come together to form a bounce track and all of them have to gel, which means originality isn't in the individual instruments but how they all come together and sound in live sets. jamiedj_dakota Unfortunately, many producers have been copying the formulas of other producers to make generic music released under the guise of "Melbourne Bounce." Jamie is trying to get away from the "identical repetitive sound" and go the route of his heroes Reece Low, Chris Bullen, Matt Watkins and, of course, Will Sparks (all of which push the Melbourne bounce envelope). Jamie is a fresh face among a sea of mainstay acts and I have no doubt he will keep pushing until he shares the spotlight with Sparks, Uberjak'd and Fletcher.
