Genres do not exist in the mind of Jameston Thieves, the brainchild of 22-year-old Phoenix native, Jake Maloney. The Phoenix native has quickly become a mainstay in the dance community with his original sound and genre-bending productions while remaining one of the most talented producers out. His impeccable sound design, passion for high energy music, and innate desire to experiment has landed him recognition from every corner of the industry.
At the age of 13, inspired by his love for the popular video game “Guitar Hero”, Maloney was motivated to learn how to play a real guitar on his own. He began saving up the money for a beginner Ibanez bass guitar, amp, and began taking lessons. This led to his growing passion for creating music and the formation of his first band.
Influenced by his bass teacher, at age 14, Maloney began to take interests in music production software and DAWs (Digital Audio Workstation). With the acquisition of his Mixcraft 2, he began learning the program and making his own rap songs. When he was not playing with one of the many local punk bands he was a part of, he spent time making his own music on his computer.
At age 17, Maloney had his first touring experiences, playing small mid-western venues and traveling by van with his bandmates in Alleyways. He withdrew from public high school and finished his junior and senior years online schooling to focus more time in developing his knowledge for music, by which point he had started producing dance music in Logic and Ableton Live. The following year, Jake attended Pyramind, an audio production school in San Francisco. This was when he formed his “Jameston Thieves project” in 2013 as a source to release his electronic music outside of his band.
His 2014 EP “A Little Deeper” put the project into motion with its unique sound of dubstep and house. In 2015, Jameston Thieves was put on two official remixes through Atlantic Records. His Ty Dolla $ign ‘Drop That Kitty’ and Flo Rida’s ‘My House’ remixes brought him widespread attention in the music scene collecting over 3 million streams across several platforms.
Jameston Thieves began touring in 2015 and has since played national, international and major festival shows. Jameston Thieves’ continued success has garnered him support from artists like Diplo, Dillon Francis, Bassnectar, Tchami Jauz, Borgore, and Oliver Heldens. He has released music through Owsla, Dim Mak, Armada, Cherry Tree/Universal, Big Beat/Atlantic, Buygore, and more. He has also received radio support from industry giants such as: Martin Garrix, Hardwell, MAKJ, Steve Aoki,David Guetta, and Morgan Page. With his unique sound and ability to stay ahead of the curve, there is no telling where his growing talent will take him in the future.
