As one of the most energetic and refreshing voices to come barrelling out of Glasgow, a city that’s already chock-a-block with clubland talent, Jackmaster needs very little introduction. In a little over five years Jack Revill has quite literally reached the top of his game - climbing to number 2 in Resident Advisor’s Top DJs of 2016 poll - through an approach that is just as likely to lead to taps-aff mayhem as it is to get the heads head scratching. Surprising, unpretentious but always bloody fun, Jackmaster is a DJ's DJ - crafting sets that twist and turn as much as they smack a smile on your face.
After schooling himself in house and techno rarities whilst cutting his teeth as a teen in Glasgow’s Rubadub Records, in 2010 Jackmaster co-founded the acclaimed Numbers imprint that has since been graced by the likes of Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, Jamie XX and PC Music hero SOPHIE. The years since, and countless worldwide shows, have cemented his position as one of the world’s very greatest DJs. Alongside annual Mastermixes, countless Boiler Room sessions and lauded additions to the esteemed Fabric Live and DJ-Kicks series’, Revill can often be found taking to the decks with the brightest and best from the club world – Ben UFO, Armand Van Helden, Seth Troxler and Oneman being just a few examples. With a record bag that guarantees belters, bangers, slow-burners and everything in-between, we can’t wait to see what he’s got in store for Hijacked.
