20 Questions: Jackmaster Talks Fast Food, Rubadub, and Coping with the Endless Party Loop

While it's all but impossible to predict exactly what Jackmaster (a.k.a. Jack Revill) will play at any one of his many gigs around the globe—the Scottish-born DJ has been known to dip into forgotten disco gems, house classics, Detroit techno, old-school electro, and sing-a-long pop anthems, amongst other things—there's little question that the Numbers co-founder is capable of being a real force behind the decks. The folks at London club XOYO have certainly taken notice, which is why they've enlisted Jackmaster for a summer-long 13 Weeks to Jack residency. The series kicked off last month and runs through the end of September, with Jackmaster in the booth every Saturday night, occasionally spinning marathon sets alone, but usually joined by a selection of hand-picked guests, including the likes of Moodymann, Axel Boman, Joy Orbison, Kenny Dope, and others. (This coming Saturday, he'll be playing alongside Steffi and Spencer Parker.) On top of the residency, Revill has still managed to maintain a hectic travel schedule, but we somehow managed to pin him down while he was in Ibiza for an edition of 20 Questions. In the course of answering our queries, Jackmaster touched upon his history with Rubadub, learning from bad sets, the proper role of a resident DJ, and his undying love for 24-hour fast food.

Download: Troy Gunner "Swoon"

First Listen

Budding Bristol talent Troy Gunner will issue his next outing via the fledgling Electro Magnetic Fields label next month. Ahead of the simply titled EMF:005 EP's release, Gunner has sent along icy bonus cut "Swoon" to help spread the word. Here, the young producer displays a proficiency for precise craftsmanship, as every sonic detail appears meticulously sculpted. Still, "Swoon" is far from clinical, finding Gunner coyly splicing bits of refracted soul and even touches of swing (mostly thanks to a handful of chopped breaks) to the production during the course of its run. Troy Gunner's four-track EMF:005 EP is set to arrive on September 22.

Download: Lamin Fofana "Two-Spirit"

Hailing from the middle of NYC producer Lamin Fofana's recent First Symphony EP, "Two-Spirit" is an acutely focused track. Spanning over five minutes, the production places a sci-fi thump beneath detailed layers of electronic haze. Eventually, faint keys and a whispered conversation begin to seep through the fog, as the track's rhythmic pulse continues unaffected, digging deeper and deeper as "Two-Spirit" moves through its run. Released via Fofana's own Sci-Fi & Fantasy label earlier this month, the official release party for the man's First Symphony EP is set to go down this Saturday in NYC, where the producer will be joined by Max McFerren and L'estasi Dell'oro (more info here). In addition to the free download of "Two-Spirit" below, Fofana's First Symphony EP can be streamed in full after the jump.  Read more »
