Last year, house music queen bee Heidi introduced the world to Jackathon Jams, her very own twisted music creation that grew from an event series to a very powerful house music label. Now, four volumes later, Miss Heidi continues to prove why she can play among the big boys. The series kicked off featuring power-players like Maya Jane Coles, Miss Kittin, Alexis Raphael, and Jimmy Edgar, and now the latest installment pulsates with back-to-back magic presented by Bristol dream-team Waifs & Strays versus Lukas and Chicago legend DJ Sneak.
On the A-side, Gimme Luv is loaded with a hazy disco bassline and quirky effects that adorn the track’s slow-slung groove. For a warped twist, look to Gimme Luv (Stokes Croft Dub) for a freestyle funk feel complete with warm, warping tones. Sneak’s identifiable “Chicago bad-boy” sound shines through Sneak’s House Gangster Boogie Mix, an uptempo, garage-style take on the original. Look to the B-side for heavy-lows, soul claps, and a ’90s style female vox found on Dance Me (Dance You).
Be sure to pick up these four very funky, brand new productions to groove to, out now on Jackathon Jams.
