Erol Alkan presents: Justin Robertson and Jackmaster
6 Mix resident Erol Alkan presents mixes from two of his favourite UK DJs: Manchester's Justin Robertson and Glasgow's Jackmaster.
Justin Robertson was a big influence on Erol in his early career and as a DJ needs no introduction. He was a regular at the Hacienda - first as a punter and then as a selector - and had chart hits during the 1990s under the moniker Lionrock. More recently he's been making music with his new project the Deadstock 33s and playing acid influenced club sets all around the world; a sound he brings to tonight's 6 Music show.
Bringing us bang up to date are the future electronic beats of Jackmaster. Starting his musical career working in Glasgow's Rubadub records, Jackmaster has played a pivotal role in the city's recent electronic music renaissance, bringing the likes of Rustie and Hudson Mohawke to a wider audience. The boss of Glasgow's hippest underground label Numbers, his techno infused sets and productions have been hotly tipped by Erol to set clubland alight in 2013.
