Jackmaster, the prolific DJ that we all know and love for his energetic and vibrant sets, ridiculous tune selection and relentless party vibe, has mixed the next instalment in the coveted DJ Kicks series. While you may never know what you're going to get with Jackmaster, quality is always guaranteed, and once again he's pulled it out the bag and delivered a selection of deep and obscure house and techno for this mix dropping next month.

"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 a 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."

Of course Jack wouldn't drop a mix without some exclusive material and by his good grace (or with much pestering), Tessela has gifted us this absolute belter exclusively for the mix. Luring you in with seductive chimes and rapid jungle influenced percussion before the heavyweight bassline takes full control delay no more and delve straight into this. This one is fire!
