Towards the end of last year, Jackmode began what has now become a continent-wide onslaught of club nights at some of Europe's coolest and most prolific venues - starting with 2 nights at the Counter Culture Project in November & December 2010.
Since then, Jackmode has put together a range of enormous lineups including much of the agency's roster (Zombie Disco Squad, Justin Martin, Round Table Knights, Christian Martin, J. Phlip, Solo, and more) as well as a selection of special guests including the likes of Jesse Rose, Hanne + Lore, Mr Solid Gold + Park Ranger, Midland, and also long term collaborators Pelski (with whom Jackmode will host a stage at this year's much anticipated Gottwood Festival), Jackmode has done nothing short of bringing international dancefloors to the boil.
Counter Culture is delighted to return to Crucifix Lane with the Jackmode and Pelski crew to bring you this very special night.
In room one we are delighted to bring you The Martin Brothers, who, as individuals as well as their sibling collaboration had a MASSIVE 2010 - Justin releasing the likes of his Robot Romance EP, Cactus EP (with Galen), and the Radio One Essential Tune "Mr Spock" (with Ardalan). Christian also brought his brand of dirty bass to releases such as Underworld's "Always Loved A Film", Chromeo's "Don't Turn The Lights On", and more - As a duo, The Martin Brothers have unleashed the likes of "Duckface", a remix of K.L.A.M's "Funky 4", and their amazing "Steal Drums". It is not often that we are given the pleasure of seeing these two hit the decks side by side, so make sure you are there to witness some history in the making.
Also in room one we are proud to present Nat Self. Nat is perhaps better known for his work as one half of Zombie Disco Squad, but has also had some big releases as a solo artist - including his remix of The Martin Brothers' "Dum", and of Jeff Doubleau's "African Drum Concert", as well as bootleg giveaway "War". The Jackmode night on April 23rd will also be celebrating the release of Nat Self's debut EP on the new Jackmode Music label imprint. The EP, "Party Whistler" will be out at the end of April.
Room 1 will finally include duo Hanne & Lore, who will also be present on the Nat Self "Party Whistler" EP fulfilling the remix duties.
Room 2 will be hosted by Berlin label Klasse Recordings. Still in relative infancy as a label, Klasse has burst on the scene with 3 superlative releases receiving support from the likes of Steve Bug, Ramon Tapia, Tim Green, Steve Lawler, Jimpster, Onsulade, Florian Meindl, Kiki amongst others, and charted by M.A.N.D.Y, Ellen Alien, Robert Dietz, Catz & Dogz. The lineup of room 2 will include Luca Lozano, Mr. Ho, Johanna Knutsson and James Creed. Bringing their own brand of house music to the table, we expect the Klasse gang to bring all kinds of new addicting grooves to your ears.
Jackmode will also be teaming up with Pelski once more. And there will be notable input from DJs Pelski and Charles Darkly on the night. Pelski remains one of the most prolific, free thinking and artist supporting blogs online, and you can expect plenty of exclusive material from Jackmode to output there in the build up to April 23rd.
