New JacksonArtists / Speakers
From his studio near the sea, New Jackson makes nocturnal house jams with a ghostly disco tint.
After rounding off 2014 with the bustling Balearica of ʻHaving A Coke With Youʼ on Germanyʼs Permanent Vacation label, the Dubliner took a brief break from album recording to return to hometown label Major Problems with the ʻMetroflexʼ 12”. The three-tracker included a remix from US techno auteur Hieroglyphic Being. The 12” was followed by a collaboration with Fort Romeau, ʻNot A Wordʼ, which featured on the UK producerʼs album on Ghostly.
It follows a series of well-received releases and remixes for labels and acts including Hivern, Perm Vac, Apartment, the xx and Mano Le Tough. He is due to release his debut album in early 2016.
Live, New Jackson cranks up the machines: vintage drum modules, trusted synths, a dusty Russian vocoder and an MPC heart. Highlights from 2015 include shows in Panorama Bar, Berlin; Milan; Barcelona; Lithuania and a flurry of shows in his native Ireland: a Body and Soul headliner; a Maeve party and a RBMA slot at Electric Picnic.
Shoot out the lights.
