Glaswegian selector Jackmaster is the latest ‘DJ Kicks’ mixer in the notorious series, which has seen the likes of Seth Troxler, Maya Jane Coles, Moodymann, and Carl Craig all compile in the past.
Jackmaster describes Detroit, Chicago and his hometown – Glasgow as the three major influences on his selection for DJ Kicks. “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 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.” He explains.
Tracks from Robert Hood, Mr. G, Denis Sulta and Ricardo Villalobos are all included within the collection, whilst Mike Dunn, Eliphino and Phil Moffa tracks also feature.
