JUNK presents Jackmaster + Jon Rust

Jon Rust [NTS Radio]
Quite literally embodying that Glaswegian zeitgeist of pilled-up-party eclecticism combined with an intrinsic underground acumen, the UK’s pre-eminent dancefloor demolisher has soared through the much-congested ranks with almost as much restless energy as the man himself.
Earning his extensive musical education from the modest age of 14 (God bless work experience), Jack began working as a distributor for one of Europe’s finest record stores, Glasgow’s institutional ‘Rubadub’. Obtaining a vital knowledge of everything from Detroit Techno to vintage Disco, he primed himself for the hyperactive hunger of his cities rather enthusiastic club culture. 4 genre-defining labels, a celebrated club night, a haloed Fabric CD, and a self-curated festival later, the inextinguishable energy that has come to define every earnest move he’s made thus far clearly shows no sign of waning.
Although sanctimoniously forbidden by the many, Jackmaster is a young man who is refreshingly unashamed to admit his intentions to the world: make people go fucking bananas. Proudly employing the “you can take the DJ out of Glasgow, but you can’t take Glasgow out of the DJ” ethos (…or somewhere along those lines), the Scotsman is quite clearly unabashed to do whatever it takes to get punters on a hype. And quite rightly so.
For all his genre-leaping unpredictability, there is always one thing certain when Jackmaster comes to town: it’s a proper party session. Heavily informed by an abiding love of ’90s dance classics and mythical Chicago rarities, coupled with a penchant for the most virulent emissions of the current UK scene, Jackmaster’s rapid-fire ability to smash styles from every corner of the dance music spectrum together is what sustains him as one of the most exciting DJ’s working in the scene today!
