Mix Of The Day: Exclusive Jack Francis Mix

Share

Jack Francis has done a fine job of establishing himself as a respected selector in the UK. It all started auspiciously when being crowned DJ of the Year by Last Night a DJ Saved My Life and since then has supported crossover star Example as well as becoming official tour DJ for Casio G-Shock.

It’s little wonder he has made such strides given the fact he got his first decks aged just ten, and was lucky enough to be exposed to the best vinyl house had to offer – Marshall Jefferson, DJ Pierre, Adonis, Mr Fingers – thanks to his dad’s carefully curated collection. Add in to that his admiration for the stage presence of The Prodigy and the production prowess of people like Skream and Claude von Stroke and you have the finished article.

We first caught up with Jack working the main floor  at his weekly residency at esteemed club EGG London. His well-honed style sees acid, house and techno all melted into one coherent sonic tapestry and with that in mind we invited Mr. Francis to deliver an exclusive mix for us for our mix of the day ahead of a big set of upcoming dates including performances at the Supernova Air London Showcase alongside Kaiserdisco, Tim Green and Julian Chaptal, Familia at Egg with Mendo, Guillaume & The Coutu Dumonts and a coveted NYE slot at Soho House to name but a few.

With production ever more Jack’s focus and thoughts of releasing in summer 2014, we thought we’d showcase his dexterous talent behind the decks before he starts to commit more time to the studio.  

Check out his mix for us below.

Grahame Farmer

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.
