New Music Worldwide is a weekly mix series hosted by Thris Tian.
This week’s New Music Worldwide comes from the French electronic producer Low Jack.
Parisian based producer Low Jack, is the electronic moniker of Philippe Hallais. Taking influences from the early 90s, with pirate radio, Definitive Jux, Chicago ghetto house and Detroit electro, Low Jack’s sound puts a twist on the different elements of the scene.
With three albums released on labels such as L.I.E.S, In Paradisum and Modern Love, the French creator lets his music do the talking. Most recently, he has released the publicly acclaimed mini-LP ‘Riddims du Lieu-dit’ on his own imprint Editions Gravats, which is a selection of killer cuts of mutant futuristic dancehall.
For his mix, Low Jack compiles a selection of tracks which are trying to redefine contemporary dancehall, alongside some homemade club edits, exclusive redubs and live sessions from the man himself.
