Jackmaster heads up the next 'DJ-Kicks' mix

Expect tracks by Robert Hood, Denis Sulta and Mr G

Glasgow selector Jackmaster is the third 'DJ-Kicks' mixer of the year after Moodymann and Dam-Funk.

Citing his hometown, Detroit and Chicago as major influences on his selection, compiling the mix didn't go to plan as he left his laptop - containing the tracks he'd picked out - in a taxi after DJing on a Caribbean cruise ship.

As a result, he ended up delving into his old record collection. "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."

Two tracks by compatriot Denis Sulta feature, with Ricardo Villalobos, future Mixmag cover star Robert Hood, Mike Dunn, Mr G and Massimiliano Pagliara also included.

Talking about the music he's gone for, he said: "Some people think I’m a dubstep DJ, some people think I just bang out classics, but neither of those are true. I try not to be too purposely idiosyncratic when selecting music. It’s kind of contrived. I want to educate people but never compromise my vision. I just want to play good music and tell my own story.”
