jackmaster brings the summer heat on the next edition of dj-kicks. the next episode of dj kicks comes from jackmaster. the numbers cofounder and charismatic glaswegian delivers an honest journey. unearthing a serious passion for the obscure boundaries of house and techno. the mix is influenced heavily by how i used to dj at the first party i ever promoted. named seismic. and another named monox which was a straight up techno night where i was a resident from the age of 17. and although it wasnt my plan. it turned into a kind of tribute to the cities that really formulated me as a dj: detroit. chicago and glasgow.
fabric 82 ist der beginn eines neues zeitalters für den kanadier jonny white. nachdem sein bisheriger art department-partner kenny glasgow ausgestiegen ist. white legt einen furiosen tech-house mix aus älteren. neuen und kommenden tunes vor. einen nahtlos übergehenden. hypnotischen klangteppich. stets deep. dubby und erfrischend. und damit einen perfekten schnappschuss des zukünftigen art department sounds.
