Jackmaster aka Jack Revill is one sixth of the Numbers Record label; an Alumni of the Red Bull Music Academy; was responsible for the FabricLive #57 mix CD, and somehow amidst his hectic DJ schedule also finds time to present a regular show on Rinse FM.
The day after our December ’11 Nottingham event we had the pleasure of heading to the Numbers LDN warehouse party, where Jackmaster played alongside Rustie, Hudson Mohawke, Deadboy, Redinho, Spencer and Jamie xx. Jack closed the night, playing until 6.30am – and has been good enough to record his set and put the mix up on the NMBRS Soundcloud page.
As he clearly showed in the above mix, Jackmaster is one of the greatest party DJs going – and for that reason we couldn’t think of anyone better suited to play at our 8th Birthday party in Nottingham on Friday June 1st.

Dusky are London based musicians Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman. As comfortable writing elegant orchestral pieces or stirring piano motifs as they are jackin’ house and techno grooves, Dusky’s diverse sounds are united by the duo’s singular aim – to compose electronic music with depth, soul and originality.
Influenced by everything from classical and avant-garde electronica to UK garage and underground house, the duo’s emphasis on musical depth rather than genre restrictions has seen their compositions played by previous dollop guests Jamie Jones, Joy Orbison and Boddika.
With DJs such as Swamp81′s Loefah & T. Williams hammering their tracks on Rinse FM, future releases on Will Saul’s ‘Simple Records’ and regular plays from dance legend Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1, the future is looking bright for Dusky.
To get an idea of what to expect from their set listen to their mix below (featuring tracks and remixes from the likes of Kerri Chandler, Huxley, George Fitzgerald, Luca Lozano, Deetron, & Eliphino).
