Electric Brixton will be handed over to Jackmaster and the Numbers crew on Friday 6th October, with Derrick May and nd_baumecker joining for an extra potent instalment of the Mastermix series. Also bringing Saturday night resident HAAi across from Phoenix for the evening, the Mastermix event looks set to be a rowdy night in South London.
Jackmaster is by now as synonymous with the UK underground scene as any other DJ, jumping between the biggest events across the country and Europe’s best party cities at an extraordinary rate. As prolific as touring DJs come, the Glaswegian blends techno, house, urban anthems and anything else that gets a party pounding like no other, by now well established as one of the best in the game at getting a room bouncing. As good at curating as he is selecting, his Mastermix series has gained quite the reputation for attracting star DJs, and with Transmat boss Derrick May joining in October, that reputation is only going to become entrenched further. A man present and influential at the birth of techno, May is one of the most influential electronic musicians in the field, and will surely be welcomed as such in Brixton.
nd_baumecker meanwhile may not be the most famous of the Panorama Bar residents, but as an affiliate of Ostgut Ton and regular at Berlin’s sacred techno hotspot, he’s still batting in the big leagues week in, week out. Deploying a fast and technical mixing style, nd_baumecker has proven himself well worthy of his impressive position at the heart of German dance music, and will play his part in a night that is given extra oomph by the eclectic selections of HAAi.
