As The 2 Bears prepare to bring the curtain down on their residency at the club, London venue XOYO have announced that Jackmaster will take over their residency series, hosting the third quarter of 2013.
Holding the dancefloor every Saturday for 13 consecutive weeks throughout July, August, and September, the Numbers co-founder and Radio One resident DJ will bring a raft of guests into the club as well as playing a few sets all night long.
Typical for Jackmaster's tastes, there's a mixture of old and new, and popular and underground all blurred together. A tasty looking Dance Mania show brings Paul Johnson and Parris Mitchell, there's room for fusion house legend Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez, and techno boffin Roman Flügel. If you subscribe to the "Alias UK Bass" on Soundcloud then get salivatin': Jackmaster will play back-to-back with Joy O on August 16th.
Check out the dates below, and be sure to download Jackmaster's Dummy Mix from 2010, a rundown of his favourite '90s commercial house bangers.
