Jack J is a producer, musician and DJ who lives in British Columbia’s Vancouver City.
Born in Sydney, Australia but based in Vancouver, Canada since his late teenage years, Jack’s music captures this antipodean experience perfectly: slightly melted ochre-hued rock is liquified and multiplied by damp-earth, soft-water-funk.
Shortly after founding Mood Hut Records in 2012, he released ‘Something (On My Mind)’ which quickly went on to define the sound of the label and the city. Named song of the year by XLR8R and more recently named one the best songs of 2010-2019 by Resident Advisor, this record has stood the test of time as a true classic of the era. The following year he released ‘Thirstin’ which was met with a similar level of success, including being named the second best song of the year by Resident Advisor.
After some time away from his solo project to focus on Pender Street Steppers (his production/DJ duo and monthly radio show on London’s NTS) Jack J has recently returned to the airwaves with the announcement of a full length LP to be released on Mood Hut Records in April 2022.
