"In the beginning there was Jack, and Jack had a groove. And from this groove came the groove of all grooves."
Dont worry - we didnt come to claim that this is your average house party. But there is something growling under the floorboards. As Lucas from ZDS said: "Gone are the multicoloured New Eras". In come the smart London boys...packed with low end bass tones, conga loops and african rhythms. "Jack had a Groove" presents the "New Wave" of upcoming house producers showcasing artists such as Mowgli&Solo or Lucas Hunter from Zombie Disco Squad.
Mowgli runs the superb digital label Deadfish and currently released under his moniker of Minimow - Bollyhouse - on Exloited Records. Solo is his partner in crime who stepped into the arena with his "Congaloid"-single on Dirty Bird. Zombie Disco Squad are the latest signing on Made to Play and one of the most forward-thinking DJS I have met so far. As some people might have already noticed - I have been pushing this worldbeat-influenced housesound quite a lot in my weekly radioshow on Fritz. Make sure you check out the great minimix from ZDS for Annie Mac. I have included a link at the end of this post.
To give the whole night a bit of a twist we have disco-boy Snax live on stage - with his band The Snackettes. Snax live is always a winner. No wonder he supported Jamie Lidell and The Scissor Sisters. Special Warmup by Reznik from Keine Musik Crew. Floor 2 is the more bleepy floor - fusing everything from IDM to Electronica, Dubstep, Crunk, Basement and Grime. Sasha Perera - singer from Jahcoozi - DJing alongside Robot Koch + debut liveshow from Unsportsmanlike (formerly known as Skate and support DJ for Moderat in the states). Viusual madness as always from Berlin Battery resident VJ Ultramoodem.
