JACQ releases ‘Here In My Heart’ on Toolroom Trax


JACQ’s love affair with house music is a longstanding one, spanning several decades and withstanding the test that comes with the twists and turns in the road of musical evolution. The Liverpool-born DJ/Producer has known from a young age that the music was destined to play a major role in his life. He grew up during a time where mixing records was still a dark art, and masters of the craft were reluctant to shed even the slightest bit of knowledge. In a way, that mentality helped to separate the cream from the crop. Those that really invested their time and passion eventually honed an impressive level of skill and JACQ was definitely one of the lucky few in that sense.

Very much the envy of his peers during his teenage years, JACQ soon advanced from creating mixtapes for his friends to warming into the club scene. Initially starting out at venues like Liverpool’s Society, Garlands, G Bar and the Arts Club, and supporting artists such as Dave Whelan, Mike DiScala (now known as Camelphat) Dave Graham and many of the other greats of that era. What followed after those few years of being a notable influence on the northern club scene, has now become the catalyst for a newly-refreshed and hungry JACQ.

His latest single ‘Here In My Heart’ has just dropped on Toolroom Trax. It is that signature Trax sound with bundles of dance floor energy, tough, driving drums and that catchy synth-led bass line. Mark Knight has been hammering this in his recent sets and we have it on good authority that it ‘goes OFF!’ Expect to hear more of Jacq in 2020 as he develops his sound after this excellent debut release!

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
