From his humble beginnings of running events in Scotland, Jackmaster has created a grass roots movement to dominate the bills of some of the best electronic music events across Europe and America. The Numbers club night he cofounded a decade ago has forged a tight ­knit and loyal scene in Glasgow and fruited a revered label that has seen the likes of Jessie Ware, SBTRKT, Rustie, Hudson Mohawke and Jamie xx all having released material. Jack has also hosted a series of shows for the globally renowned BBC Radio 1 allowing his charming personality and instinct for judging an audience to unite, a formula that continues to elevate his status as a world class DJ.

“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 wasn’t my plan, it turned into a kind of tribute to the cities that really formulated me as a DJ: Detroit, Chicago and Glasgow.”

The musical foundations of these cities are deeply embedded in the mix, as is Jack’s knowledge from his first job working at Glasgow’s infamous Rubadub recordshop. “There are a couple of wee secret weapons that are stolen from the guys at Rubadub, and obviously tracks Q1.1 by Basic Channel and the M­Plant bits I picked up from them too. The rest is stuff I found myself or on mates labels or produced by friends.”

DJ Kicks album is a testament to the journey Jack embarked on as a young teenager and a symbol of how far he has come. A well­ considered and seamless course that plots his early influences and cements his status for years to come. “I think it’s different to what a lot of people would expect from me, but for me it was important to do something honest and something that sets the record straight in a way. Some people think I’m a dubstep DJ, some people think I just bangout classics, but neither of those are true. I try not to be too purposely idiosyncratic when selecting music. It’s kind of contrived. I want to educate people but never compromise my vision. I just want to play good music and tell my own story.”

Dj Kicks‘s Jackmaster album will be out on July 8th on !K7.
