Jackmaster

Jackmaster (Jack Revill) is a Glasgow-based DJ known for his eclectic mix sessions as well as for co-founding label and club night Numbers. While his name clearly references Chicago house pioneer Farley Jackmaster Funk, he doesn't confine his DJ sets to one style or scene, spanning Detroit techno, U.K. garage/dubstep, minimal techno, disco/funk, and anything else that moves the crowd. He began DJ'ing and working at a record store during his early teens, and by the age of 17, he was a resident DJ at Glasgow techno club Monox. Numbers began releasing online mixes and promoting events around 2006. He also co-founded the related Wireblock label, which released early material by Rustie and Hudson Mohawke. Numbers became a proper label in 2010 and released dozens of well-regarded 12"s and full-lengths by Jessie Ware & SBTRKT, Jamie xx, SOPHIE, Redinho, Mosca, and several others. Immediately after the label was established, Jackmaster became in demand, appearing at numerous clubs and festivals and appearing in DJ polls from publications such as DJ Magazine and Resident Advisor. He mixed Fabric's Fabriclive 57 in 2011 and a 2016 volume of !K7's lauded DJ-Kicks series. ~ Paul Simpson
