Jackmaster b2b Oneman at Notting Hill Carnival
The Glaswegian mix machine goes back to back with Oneman, featuring Jessie Ware and MC Asbo.
Jack Revill has been surging ahead on a wave of elastic alien syncopations for a time. A member of Glasgow’s legendary Rubadub crew since the age of 14, his labels Dress 2 Sweat and Wireblock have been pivotal in launching the careers of trailblazing producers such as Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, or Night Slugs’ L-Vis 1990. His main focus, Numbers, sees him at the forefront of new electronic music again. With releases from some of the finest names in post-dubstep, such as SBTRKT, Untold, and Deadboy, he keeps collecting accolades from forward thinking folks the world over. First and foremost though, Jackmaster is a DJ. A thoroughbred entertainer and impeccable selector, his sets range from bass to boogie, raw Chicago house to 80s wedding classics. Here Jackmaster is teaming up with Oneman. Dexterously blending the best of bass music, Oneman has built a name by championing the pick of dark UK garage – that bypassed most people’s ears the first time round – with the cream of dubstep. Quoted as wanting to make people dance and dance to good beats, Oneman succeeds with his slick mixing and ability to join the dots between the last fifteen years of the UK’s hardcore continuum. Co-founder of London’s infamous sweat-dripping and legally questionable warehouse events, House Party!, he has 2-stepped his way onto a ridiculously long list of the top venues and club nights in the scene, including FWD, DMZ, and Night Slugs. In 2010 he founded his own imprint 502 Recordings, representing “new sounds born out of the collision of many modern forms of UK underground music”.
