Numbers Details Tenth Anniversary Celebrations, Shares New Mix from Jackmaster
2013 may not have been the most prolific year for Glaswegian label Numbers, but just about every tune it has released—like, say, Sophie's "Bipp," Doc Daneeka's "Walk On In," and the XLR8R Pick'd Blaquewerk EP by Deadboy—has been a bonafide stunner. So it's not too hard to say that the label has had one hell of a tenth year in operation, and now its looking to cap things off with a three-part event series in London, New York, and Glasgow, all of which is preceded by a brand-new mix from co-founder Jackmaster (pictured above).
First, the party details: In New York, label heads Jackmaster and Spencer will be joined by DJ Deeon and Anthony "Shake" Shakir on November 29; London will feature performances from Hudson Mohawke, Optimo, Redinho, the Numbers crew, and "very special guests" on December 7; the details for Number 10 Glasgow are still unspecified, but we do know it will take place on December 13. Time, location, tickets, and full line-up information for each party can be found here.
As for the new mix—which, of course, has no tracklist—Jackmaster has delivered a 97-minute excursion into funky and forward dancefloor sounds as a stream or free download. The DJ says of his annual offering, "Thanks to Twitch, Dom Capello, Yasmin, John Talabot, Joy, Alex Peden, Big Andy, Lee Smart, and anyone else I pinched tunes off for this mix."
