This event is 18 and over

Hot Natured have had to cancel their two US live appearances this weekend (Terminal 5, New York on 6th July and Wave Front Festival, Chicago on 7th July). There have been last minute visa complications for the band's touring crew that were beyond Hot Natured's control. It meant the group would have been prevented from bringing the full Hot Natured live production to the US for their debut north American shows this weekend and regrettably the band have been forced to cancel these two live shows as a result. They are hoping to reschedule these US dates as soon as possible.

Culprit introduces Hot Natured, a new project from Jamie Jones and L.A. resident Lee Foss. A modern take on classic and future music, with the party always in mind, Hot Natured has already been turning heads with its debut parties at this year’s DEMF and WMC.

Jamie Jones is a man who needs no introduction. A stalwart of the Crosstown Rebels crew he is one of the UK’s most sought after DJ and producer talents, a regular at the likes of Fabric and The End with international residencies spanning the globe. His productions have been picked up by some of the world’s top house and techno labels including Freak n Chic and Crosstown Rebels, and it was no surprise when he and fellow Brit Simon Baker were called upon to kick start Get Physical’s Get Digital label. His latest smash ‘Summertime’ was dubbed one of the track of 2009’s WMC by Resident Advisor and his eagerly anticipated full length drops later this year on Crosstown Rebels. Hot Natured unites Jones in the studio with his long time brother-in-arms and close friend Lee Foss.


Chicagoan turned Angeleno, Lee Foss has quickly made a name for himself in his new home town. A regular on the decks with Droog and an Avalon residency, his move West coincided with LA’s techno renaissance and Foss has become a key player in the city’s musical scene. Despite club demand for him behind the DJ booth, Foss has spent the last twelve months tirelessly honing his production skills in Droog’s ‘Bunker’ studio. With a slew of forthcoming solo releases and remixes, plus collaborations with Jamie Jones and Lee Curtiss, and with his tracks already being supported by everyone from Laurent Garnier to Ewan Pearson, Lee’s hard work is paying big dividends and with Hot Natured he is poised for stardom.

Few DJs have made such a dramatic impact on the underground house and techno scene over the last two years as Hot Creations label owner Lee Foss. Described by DJ Mag as "one of the most talented new forces in modern dance music today" and by fellow future house innovators Art Department as their favourite producer, Lee has quickly catapulted himself into dance music's collective consciousness. Lee and his Hot Natured partner Jamie Jones currently spearhead a whole family of like-minded producers that includes Robert James, Russ Yallop, Richy Ahmed and most recently Danny Daze who are currently re-writing the rulebook of how to make evocative and emotive house music.

Born and raised in Chicago, the birthplace of house, Lee now lives between London and Los Angels. Lee made his name on both sides of the Atlantic playing at clubs like The Standard Rooftop (Lost Angeles), fabric (London), The Marcy Hotel (Brooklyn), Watergate (Berlin), Spybar (Chicago) and DC10 (Ibiza). Lee's rapid rise to prominence has been as much down to his unified but all-encompassing approach to DJing as it has to his pioneering take nu school house and synth-heavy techno, backed up by a string of hit releases on labels like No 19, Culprit, Wolf+Lamb and his own Hot Creations imprint. His unique sound, born out a lifelong love of classic house, 90s hip hop, 80s electro and Detroit techno, combined with fanatical grassroots support from clubbers in both Europe and North America, made him the highest new entrant in Resident Advisor's Top 100 DJs poll last December, coming in at number 36.

While growing up in Chicago, Lee cut his teeth on the clubs and raves of the late 90's, which sparked his interest in house and disco. However, it was a chance visit to Ibiza back in 2001, that changed his whole approach to music that helped steer his musical destiny for the next decade and beyond. It was in Ibiza that summer that he first became friends with Jamie Jones and the pair quickly formed a tight brotherly bond that has recently blossomed into their highly acclaimed Hot Natured partnership. Having spent several years abroad, and heavily inspired by time spent at seminal electro and deep house parties in Ibiza and East London, Lee decided to take all that he'd learnt in Europe and export it back to the USA.

After cutting his teeth in the competitive Chicago dj scene for the better part of a decade, Lee chose to uproot and set up in Los Angeles. Lee decided to work on music full time and soon fell in with Droog who were just setting up Culprit Records which became a platform for his early releases like 'h.e.a.d.s EP' in partnership with Jamie Jones. His bold move to Los Angeles soon started paid off as it helped draw international attention to both his DJing and production work. His real break through came with the release of 'Grinding' on Wolf+Lamb, a track that was picked up and played by DJs right across the spectrum of dance music.

Since then Lee has gone on to release a string of hits on a variety of labels including 'The Edge EP' 'Equilibrium', 'U Got Me' and most recently his 'Starfruit EP', all of which have been independently awarded 'Tune of the Month' in Mixmag at various points over the last year. In addition DJ Magazine voted 'U Got Me' as their number 4 favourite record of 2010, having already featured it in their 'Stone Cold Killers' section earlier in the year.

With this many accolades under his belt in such a short space of time, it would be easy for Lee to rest on his laurels but this couldn't be farther from the case. He's just about to unleash 'Forward Motion' his latest Hot Natured production with Jamie Jones, which was one of the breakout records of Miami this year and is shaping up to be one of the summer's biggest hits. In addition to this he's currently in the studio with Jamie Jones and 'Forward Motion' vocalist Ali Love putting the finishing touches on their forthcoming Hot Natured debut album, which he's producing alongside his own debut artist album due out later this year. With plans to turn Hot Natured into a fully formed live act and tour it globally in 2012, this is already shaping up to be a career-defining year for Lee Foss.
