            Jackmaster Biography

            Official website: nmbrs.net/crew/jackmaster/

            Over the last five years, Jackmaster, aka Glasgow’ s Jack Revill, has established himself as one of the most admired and in demand DJs in the world, culminating in him being voted #5 in the Resident Advisor Top 100 DJ Poll in 2015. A product of the underground, his independent spirit remains intact, while he is equally at home sharing centre stage with the likes of Seth Troxler and Jamie Jones at DC10 in Ibiza or Ben UFO and Mike Servito at a Numbers warehouse party in London.

            His lack of musical prejudice, an open-minded approach and ability to adapt to any given situation are just some of the reasons why year after year he has retained his popularity with the masses. An equally important factor is his wide-ranging taste, and ability to surprise: something that makes it impossible to know for certain which musical direction his sets will take. It is also worth pointing out that Jackmaster is one of a handful of DJs on the international scene who has remained at the top without the need to produce or remix, relying almost exclusively on his innate skills and talent on the decks to thrive and prosper. You never know exactly what you’ re going to hear with Jackmaster.

            The element of glorious surprise is crucial to his sets: from the lost Dance Mania gems he spends his time unearthing to forgotten Disco tracks to straight-up house and techno sets, the Numbers co-founder has more options up his sleeve than just about any other DJ out there – and a rare knack for connecting seemingly disparate styles into cohesive sets that continually impress. “I don’ t do eclecticism just for eclecticism’ s sake,” he states firmly. Jackmaster has been obsessed with music ever since his early years working at the legendary record store Rubadub in his native Glasgow, a place he continues to cite as the source and starting point for his unmatched sound.

            Self confessed super fan of Prince and dedicated collector of disco and funk gems and rarities, Revill was involved in collectives and labels like Dress 2 Sweat and Wireblock before founding Numbers with his friend Spencer. The label has released material, SBTRKT, Deadboy, Redinho, Jessie Ware, Sophie, Jamie XX and Mosca among many others. Since the very beginning his sets have been a object lesson in versatility and imagination; as can be seen on the now infamous mix series ‘ Tweak-A-Holic’ , his many contributions to websites, clubs and benchmark music platforms (two Essential Mixes, Fact, Resident Advisor, Fabric) and, of course, countless sets at festivals around the world. No other DJ combines passion, knowledge, energy, honesty and humour better than Jackmaster.

            What you are guaranteed to get is a master selector’ s instinct for creating and riding the energy of a crowd: few can get a dancefloor as hyped as Jackmaster. “I don’ t think about music in terms of genre, I think about it in terms of energy levels,”he says – and as his star has risen over the past few years, this has been on perfect display at parties from Glasgow to Berlin to New York, and from superclubs such as Berghain and Fabric to legendary underground warehouse parties. At the heart of Jackmaster’ s wide-ranging sensibility is a fundamental honesty: he believes in neither following trends nor the concept of guilty pleasures. His commitment to both honesty and energy encapsulates what can make dance culture life-changingly thrilling: it’ s about the clubber on the dancefloor reacting instantaneously and truthfully to the music. Few cater to that dancer as effectively as Jackmaster – no mere “crowd-pleaser”, but someone always guaranteed to please the crowd.
