DT818 – Jordan Peak
Jordan Peak is held in high regard by his peers across house and techno music. He first made his mark back when Pete Tong and DJMag tipped him as ‘one to watch’.
He then went from strength-to-strength, in the studio and DJ booth becoming renowned for his finely crafted productions blending classic house and techno sounds with his own modern and distinctive twist. This has culminated in Jordan gracing the decks of the world’s best venues and parties including fabric, Mint Leeds, Rex Club, Studio 80, Pacha, Space and Electric Pickle.
This saw Jordan gain staunch support from the house and techno elite Carl Cox, Disclosure, Gerd Janson, Groove Armada, Jamie Jones, John Digweed, Kerri Chandler, Marco Carola, Maya Jane Coles, Patrick Topping and Seth Troxler. With releases on some of the world’s most esteemed imprints Bass Culture, One Records, Morris Audio. Robsoul and Saved Records. All the while gaining attention from premier dance publication Mixmag with not one but two tunes of the month titles.
Just as things really began to lift off Jordan he was hit with complications from the lung disease cystic fibrosis which thankfully settled but during this period of his life it had a knock-on effect impacting his mental health and eventually forcing him to put the brakes on his burgeoning artist career…
During his enforced sabbatical, Jordan rediscovered his passion for martial arts, alongside starting therapy to help with his mental health battles. After a few years off from music to address his physical and mental health, Jordan decided to start making music again and it was like a tap had been turned on and the creative ideas came flowing out again.
With Jordan’s passion reignited he sent some music across to Timmy P and Devstar’s label Make You Move and in the summer of 2022 he released his smash ‘Less Drama, More Party EP’ receiving support for several months from BBC Radio 1 heavyweights Pete Tong, Danny Howard and Sarah Story.
Now after a prolonged hiatus, Jordan Peak is back with a renewed strength and determination to bring his inspiring crossover house and techno sound to the masses. This includes launching his own imprint Peak Trax, a creative outlet for Jordan to showcase his own brand of house and techno. Welcome back Jordan Peak!
Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Boots and cats and boots and cats on repeat. Boom
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
You can’t ask me that! That’s like asking a parent “Which one is your favourite child?”. How dare you! Only kidding, I love all the tracks I played in this that’s why I included them.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Well you have a mix of my original music, a remix I had just finished the morning of recording, some old tracks, some new, a couple that are only available on vinyl, yes I still love to buy and play vinyl, some little DJ trickery here and there and voila . . . you have my podcast for you lovely people at Data Transmission.
Tell us about your next EP?
I have just had an EP out on Javi Bora’s label Too Many Rules, one of the tracks I played in the mix the other was played on Sarah Story’s show on BBC Radio 1 this weekend just gone (and hopefully by more people out there).
The very next EP I have coming is the second release on my label Peak Trax, 3 brand new cuts guaranteed to make your ears happy. One I’ve written the vocal hook for with a talented artist called Jodie Paige, check out her music, it’s unreal. That will be out at the end of February.
What have you got coming up?
Music, music and more music! After taking a break from DJing, producing and remixing for a few years due to health reasons both physical and mental I have so much new original music and remixes waiting to come out this year.
I lost my love for producing and performing due to the stuff I was going through but it’s back in full force now. Bring on 2023, let’s get this party started.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
I hope you enjoy the mix as much as I had to make it . . . also buy my new release pretty please. I will see you all on a dance floor sometime soon, Much love
