With his Caledonia tour in full swing, Jackmaster has shared his annual ‘Mastermix’ via Soundcloud. It’s been another big year for the Numbers DJ, where he was a regular fixture at the likes of Circoloco at DC10 and a festival mainstay over the summer; not to mention his recent South America tour where he recorded this year’s Mastermix.
Following the recent announcement about his 30th birthday blowout at SWG3 in early January, this mix will keep you on your toes until you catch him from the dancefloor. You can also vote for Jackmaster in Resident Advisor’s Top DJs of 2015 poll here – he definitely deserves the recognition.
Read what he had to say about the Mastermix and listen below:
“I was worried I wouldn’t get this done due to gig commitments in South America, but Lost Beach Club in Montañita, Ecuador, went out of their way to open up their back room (or “the cave” as they call it) so I could finish the mix. Huge thanks to them as well as all the people who were kind enough to share music with me for this one: Spencer (always), Cratebug, Armand, Ben UFO, Geroge Fitz, Mad Paddy who crashed in our villa in Ibiza, Palms Trax, Jonnie Wilkes and of course Martin Rubadub (also as always).
It's a kind of Tweak-A-Holic 4.5 meets Mastermix 2015 (as I never managed to get tweak #5 done this year, sorry) but it also features a load of the tracks that have been more prominent in my sets this year that a load of people have been asking about, as well as a couple of forthcoming, unreleased Numbers tunes.
The recording includes some surface noise, at few needle skips and more than a few dynamic discrepancies between transitions due to the fact I am attempting to mix 3 decades worth of music and technological mastering advances into 2 hours worth of music.
Enjoy!!! And please join me in prayer that the Soundcloud Gods won't delete this one.”
Jackmaster plays iAM tonight (24th) at the Sub Club. Advance tickets are available from Resident Advisor priced at £13.50 (inc fees). You can also see Jackmaster supporting Disclosure at The Hydro this Thursday (26th).
