In a press statement, Jordan says: “After almost two years of lockdown, I finally played my first gig in September, at AVA festival,
"This reminded me of the energy I’d been missing without clubs, and inspired me to go straight to the studio, where I got stuck in and wrote two fun tracks with club dance floors in mind.”
He continued this sentiment on an Instagram caption where he wrote: "Dancefloors are back and I was inspired to push the tempo a little bit with some club energy on @systemrecordsuk."
The EP has got a very positive response from some of the best names in the business, including DJ Seinfeld, Groove Armada, Peggy Gou and Skream.

System Records label boss Dance System adds; “I caught Jordan playing Mixmag Lab last month, his set was full of energy and was just so much fun. We started chatting after that and he sent these tunes over, I thought they really captured the vibe of his sets and after spinning them a few times, I knew they would be perfect for System.”
