Jacky makes his debut appearance on the growing label Keep It Zen Records and kicks off 2015 by taking you on a journey with his sensational Nineteen EP, featuring 3 peak time dance floor hitters, all with that unique Jacky signature sound he is becoming well known for.
‘Nineteen' simply goes off! It's a straight up emotional tech-house love affair blended with erotic female moans, hearty synthesisers and a driving clockwork bass line that doesn't stop. 'Beyond' holds an infectious groove throughout with a chunky rolling bass line, which we love. This banger then breaks down in the centre with Jacky's, yet again, consistent and electric synth work used to take you in a different direction of his journey.
‘Mute' a straight up bomb with swagger kicks off the B-side of this relentless record.
The dubby kick drum combined with Jacky's low-fi moody bass and the euphoric melody of strings makes this track big and bumpy. System2, made up of vinyl lovers Tez Hurst and Danny Hevingham, who are signed to the likes of VIVa MUSIC, Kaluki Musik and their own imprint also called System2 join the Keep It Zen family and display just how mature their sound is. Clearly sticking to no rules but their own System2 jolt and bounce through their remix of 'Mute' in an almost improvised and live fashion.
A lot of love went into this record, and thought was put into every inch of this release.
Even the tracks names are not a coincidence, as Jacky tells us the story of his journey pursuing a career as an electronic artist. 'Nineteen' is the age he was when he took a loan out and bought his first pair of turntables, 'Beyond' is the name of a bar where he played his first ever gig in his hometown Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and 'Mute' is the brand who took him on as a resident allowing him to play monthly at his favourite club as a youngster, Sankey's.
