Biography

Recognized as one of the top 45 of ‘Chicago’s Most Powerful People In Music’ by NewCity Chicago magazine – alongside the likes of worldwide hip hop star Kanye West and techno innovator Jeff Mills – Bryan Jones is considered one of the most exciting members of the city’s new breed. The magazine also credits Bryan, and his label Control Recordings, with having “helmed a crusade that has bellied into the clubs on the right and left coasts” and states that he played a major part in creating the fresh and energetic sub-genre dubbed ‘new-school house’ where his “chunky, funky bass is writing a new chapter in music.”

Born in 1981 and raised near Chicago, Bryan was bitten by the DJ bug at age 18 and quickly started releasing vinyl records thereafter with Mike Gillenwater under the ‘High Caliber’ alias. The duo’s highlight was the inclusion of their song ‘Shakedown’ on the ‘Playboy: The Mansion’ video game and accompanying soundtrack, mixed by Felix Da Housecat. Other projects were signed to leading house labels including Guesthouse, Moody, Robsoul and DJ Dan’s In Stereo.

As a solo artist, Bryan made his big mark with the 2006 underground house classic ‘Chicago Jack’. The record remains his most successful to date and catapulted him into the conscious of discernable house DJs, while also creating further work for Ministry of Sound, Om, Ultra, Nordic Trax and Aroma amongst others. i! Records commissioned his debut album ‘Step Back’ in 2007, a 15 track journey which was supported by a full DJing tour.
