The Spectrm Podcast series returns for our second mix of 2014 (yes we know it’s mid-March) with a mix from Shriekin’ Specialist (aka Jack Sheehan) and it’s nothing short of spectacular. In his own words, “I just wanted to play loads of mad stuff”.
You may have heard Jack’s music in Slackk’s monthly mixes and regular radio shows which have become a platform for many promising new grime producers. His highly melodic, densely layered tracks have already caught the ears of Local Action’s Tom Lea (alongside many others, including Murlo, Rabit and Glacial Sound, to name a few) who recently confirmed that there’s an EP on the way.
We’re looking forward to seeing what 2014 has in store for him, for now, enjoy this mix.
“People in the club standing in front of you recording for 20 minutes, and when it’s done they start making a new recording. So why did they even come to the club? Just to record my set? What? Go there, enjoy the night, talk to a nice girl, whatever. But maybe this is one point that makes the Berghain so special. The people have their phones but they’re not focused on them the whole time. Pictures are forbidden. I miss that sometimes, because I’m the same. When I’m in the cab I sit on the phone and [taps imaginary screen]. ‘I have to answer, I have to check this’. Pfft. Crazy. Just remember, the only person you have to call is your mother.”—Dettmann, M, The Art Of Listening: Marcel Dettmann Interviewed, The Quietus
