A love letter to Detroit, Chicago and Glasgow.
Update 6/7/16: You can now stream the album here.
Following Moodymann and DaM-FunK, the next episode of DJ Kicks has been curated by Jackmaster. The mix sees him delving deep into his vast record collection to pick out several obscurities and “secret weapons” from his days working at Glasgow’s Rubadub – one of our World’s Best Record Shops.
Featuring exclusive tracks from Tessela, Alcatraz Harry and Denis Sulta, the mix went through five iterations before being finalised. Other featured artists include Italian techno veteran Lory D, 1080p’s LNRDCROY, Mr. G, Basic Channel, Anno Stamm, Mike Dunn and Robert Hood. Find the tracklist below.
The Numbers co-founder ran into trouble recording the mix as he left his computer and record bag in a taxi after DJing on a Caribbean cruise ship and was forced to rethink his approach.
“Once I got to Glasgow I bought a new computer, salvaged what music I could from old machines but most importantly delved deep into my record collection to find some obscure and forgotten bits that would do the CD justice,” he writes in a press release.
“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.”
The mix drops on double vinyl on July 8.
