Having released on the likes of Pampa, Perlon and Playhouse, the veteren DJ Michel Baumann aka Soulphiction is now reactivating his Jackmate moniker - more techy and club oriented, Jackmate first appeared in 1996 and recently resurfaced on a V.A. compilation on Ripperton’s Tamed Musiq.
Here “the Jacker” presents three deep and funky stompers that will take you straight into the summer. On the A side the jolting percussion / kick interplay of the title-track with its boiled down bassline sets the scene perfectly. The warm and jacking groove of ‘Skeletones’ conjures the best loved Moodyman-esq moments whilst the hypnotic melodies of ‘The Clarinettes’ serve to ask why there aren’t more clarinet solos gracing the world’s dancefloors?
