Jackmaster mixes it up for The Wire

Lisa Blanning

An exclusive mix from Glasgow's Jackmaster which was originally broadcast on our Adventures In Modern Music programme on Resonance FM last week. Jackmaster is a resident at Numbers, works at Rubadub, and has his hands in a number of labels as well, including Dress 2 Sweat and Wireblock. Originally I asked him for half an hour, but he provided over an hour's worth of music and with so much unreleased material, I wasn't going to protest! Thanks, Jack!!
I'm not sure what it is about Glaswegian DJs (maybe one day I'll bore you all with my theories about places like Glasgow, San Francisco and Detroit), from Optimo to Kode9 to all of the Numbers crew, but they tend to mix it up a bit more and Jack's tracklist is no exception. A good mix all around which is especially interesting to reflect the changing face of UK dance music, but for my money the latter half really gets things bumping.

this mix is wiiiiicked. nice one one sackblaster.


This mix is only 30 mins - is it supposed to be an hour?

Sorry to hear that – Just downloaded it and it seems OK to me. Wanna try again, and drop me a line at derek at thewire dot co dot uk if it doesn't work?

Best Jackmaster mix yet, I think. Pretty good set at the Numbers party in Barcelona also.

Now for the complaint... 128kbps??? I'd rather not have a direct link and better quality.
