Several East Coast stops on G Jones‘ tour have been postponed following the esteemed bass artist’s announcement of his mother’s passing. Management took to G Jones’ Twitter account to inform fans that approaching dates in Atlanta, D.C., and New York City would be rescheduled. G Jones’ camp noted that they would continue to keep listeners and promoters alike updated should more cancellations ensue.
G Jones later shared several photographs of his mother on the social platform and thanked fans for “reaching out with messages of love and support.” The producer additionally asked his followers to kindly respect his privacy and grief by not addressing the topic with him in person. “I will raise the topic if I want to discuss it,” G Jones stated.
We at Dancing Astronaut offer our condolences to G Jones.

Eprom and G Jones are back with some more experimental bass to bend our minds with. “Daemon Veil” is quite unlike anything I’ve heard before, and not only lives up to the DJs sound but goes above and beyond anything they’ve produced before. The track starts out slow with ambient noises but quickly changes to
Eprom and G Jones‘ first collaborative endeavor since 2017’s EP, Acid Disk, “Daemon Veil” is an aggressively textured single that showcases the producers’ shared bass sensibilities. An ominous bassline merges with eerie chords in the early seconds of the collaboration. These elements rise together in simmering synchronicity as the track’s commanding vocal cuts into the instrumental beginning, instructing listeners to raise their torches and their lighters as the bassline plunges.
The jagged bassline descends further downward into sonic grit that spares streamers no smoothness. A breakdown that occurs just around the midway point tempers the bombastic bass that bodies listeners. Comparatively, more melodic tones offer a break from the heavy bass action as the climactic joint project concludes. “Daemon Veil” is out now via Deadbeats. The production will resurface on Eprom’s forthcoming EP, Aikon.
RL Grime takes on an edit of G Jones “In Your Head,” from the producer’s mind-bending The Ineffable Truth album. RL’s spin comes by way of his newly minted Sable Valley imprint, capped by a unique low-end polish, giving “In Your Head” more of a structured trap complexion. G Jones, known for his forward-thinking bass sensibilities, lays the perfect groundwork for RL Grime’s inimitable style on this new remix. The NOVA producer recently opened shop with a new label, Sable Valley, using the platform to promote a thriving corner of the electronic underground.

Claude VonStroke joins forces with ZDS and KE for “Comments,” and Malaa takes things up a notch with a feisty remix of DJ Snake’s “Savage.” Madeaux links with Dances With White Girls for “Club Demons,” and “Worlds Collide” on Nervo’s latest. Goldroom continues a slew of releases with “I Can Feel It” with Love, Alexa. ShockOne and The Bloody Beetroots take to Monstercat for their new single, “Run,” and Laidback Luke and Mark Bale dance into the weekend with “Party Starter.” Klingande and Stevie Appleton craft an easygoing single in “Sinner,” and Moguai remixes Oliver Heldens’ “Summer Lover.”

Bass breeder of a most funk-infused variety, Opiuo has cooked up a special playlist for Dancing Astronaut ahead of his performance at central California’s next round of Lightning In A Bottle festival, on May 8.
The New Zealand-born, Australian resident, Opiuo takes listeners through the chromatic length of his aural crates, with tracks spanning tender, melodic house (Lane 8‘s “Atlas”) to foreboding mid-tempo electro (1788-L‘s “Cyberspace”). Like-minded funk and experimental bass producers run abound, with additional offerings from CloZee, G Jones, Big Gigantic, and of course, some innovative firepower from Opiuo himself to adequately ready Lightning In A Bottle attendees for a splendidly strange DJ set.
I’m so excited to be back at Lightning In A Bottle, one of my favourite festivals in North America,” says Opiuo. “Here are a bunch of songs I love from a bunch of friends and legends playing on the weekend. You can expect a tonne of brand new music from me on the night as we dance away into the bass heavy funkadelicoblivion.
Tickets to Lightning In A Bottle, held at Buena Vista Lake, as well as general festival information, can be found here.
