Jack Burt joins the Spotlight Mix Series
Growing up in his teens, Jack Burt was introduced to 80s Soul & Disco by his parents in his hometown of St Ives Cambridgeshire.
His love for gritty Urban music started with a ‘pot luck’ selection of a Public Enemy album in his local library. DJing came later after he discovered Jungle & UK Garage, set up his own pirate Radio station ‘Bassment FM’ in the late 90’s and won a number of notable DJ competitions.
Over the last 18 months, Jack has started to branch out into producing music after an inspiring conversation with Audio Rehab’s boss man Mark Radford at one of Jack’s events at the Fez club in Cambridge. The Deep Tech sound was everything he was looking for.. “Bass focused, edgy UK rawness with soul” reverting back to his early teenage years. He is now carefully crafting his own spin on the Deep Tech & Electronic sound with militant style basslines wrapped up over broken 2-step beats with splashes of acid. Check out his recent 3 track EP ‘Blackout’ on underground UK label Strange Static where two of the tracks are currently placed at 1 & 3 in the label’s Beatport chart.
Recently, Jack’s DJ career has taken him to Dubai and has led him to secure future international bookings later in Italy in 2018. UK wise, catch him tearing up at a number of festivals including HiFields Festival & Green Meadows over the summer.
Jack Burt says: “This Mix was recorded in my home studio in Fenstanton Cambridgeshire at the start of the 2018 festival season. The mix contains 20 tracks and takes the listener on a journey in the same way that my live high energy DJ sets do. The mix begins with some upfront Tech House favorites to set the pace and gives a glimpse of some of the surprises to come later. The mix twists and turns through some 80s disco and finally slides deeper into the darker shades of Deep Tech, Techno & Bass sounds with two of my own tracks taken from my Blackout EP on Strange Static.”
