Heidi presents jackathon jams

A UK staple in the house music world, Heidi is back to present even more exceptional beats to move our bodies. Featured is an impressive line up of female producers who have, as of late, been dominating much of the electronic world. Jackathon Jams unfolds with artists that include Deep House whiz kid Maya Jane Coles, Desolat’s prized tINI, and the one and only, Miss Kittin. With such a diverse release, this EP oozes sexiness that only a team like this could deliver.

Beginning the release is the queen of nu-school house, Maya Jane Coles, who over the last two years has greatly moved her career into international recognition. Her touch on the track Getting Freaky is no exception to her awe inspiring talents, with deep hitting grooves, innovative vocal, and dreamy synth sounds around every corner. Nodding to her time of inspiration, Heidi calls upon 90’s underground hero Miss Kittin to deliver her classic touch with Girlz. A heavily percussive and jacking nod to the beginning of Techno, her own timeless vocal and hi synth lines remind us of Miss Kittin’s dedication and consistent skill.

Weighing in to remix the pumping Miss Kitten tune, up and coming superstar tINI smoothes out the release as she closes with a deep remix. Stripping back the original but maintaining the same energies, tINI gives Girlz an experimental dub-techno twist with lazy swing and hard-hitting samples. Continuing the Jackathon legacy, Heidi is always providing dance floors with that feeling of jacking house inspired by its creators from the places where it all began.
