JACKMASTER

UK

 

Over the last six years, Glasgow’s Jackmaster has established himself as one of the most admired and in demand DJs in the world, culminating in him being voted #2 in the Resident Advisor Top 100 DJ Poll in 2016. A product of the underground, his independent spirit remains intact, while he is equally at home sharing centre-stage with the likes of Seth Troxler and Jamie Jones at DC10 in Ibiza or Ben UFO and Mike Servito at a Numbers warehouse party in London. His open-minded approach and ability to adapt to any given situation, underpinned by a knowledge of underground house and techno bordering on the obsessive, are just some of the reasons why year after year he has retained his popularity with the masses. Jack was involved in collectives and labels like Dress2Sweat and Wireblock before founding Numbers with his friend Spencer. The label has released material from some of the biggest names in electronic music including SBTRKT, Jamie xx & Jessie Ware, whilst also pushing cutting edge sounds from the likes of SOPHIE, representing underground legends Lory D & DJ Deeon, and pushing Glasgow’s brightest talents in Sparky, Rustie and Denis Sulta. At the heart of Jackmaster’s wide-ranging sensibility is a fundamental honesty: he believes in neither following trends nor the concept of guilty pleasures. His commitment to both honesty and energy encapsulates what can make dance culture life-changing and thrilling: it’s about the clubber on the dancefloor reacting instantaneously and truthfully to the music.
