Audiojack

It's a familiar story: A chance meeting over 10 years ago in Ibiza (where else?) forms the basis of the duo now known as Audiojack, a Leeds-based DJ and production outfit made up of Richard Burkinshaw and James Rial. Over the last decade the twosome's initial link-up on the White Island has evolved to become a formidable outfit; rocking dancefloors from Brazil to Australia, unleashing a consistently high level of their own music and managing a label, Gruuv, that has maintained a sterling reputation for nurturing the very best in talent, new and old.

Despite a large degree of success from the beginning (their first single 'Robot' thrust them into the limelight back in 2005), Jamie and Rich have maintained a degree of control over their careers that is rare to find in the modern-day, looking inward and reinventing themselves to keep things constantly fresh. Though they are focused on the dancefloor, their output is not limited to one particular style – you can always expect quality, but they straddle a variety of styles from techno through to the more melodic end of house music. “We’ve been DJing for over 30 years between the pair of us and we always look at things from the perspective of the dance floor, therefore our music is always focused on that,” they say.

This focus has seen them notch up one successful release after another, from their expertly reimagined mix of Jaydee's classic 'Plastic Dreams' to the huge 'No Equal Sides' EP, released via their long-standing relationship with seminal label 2020Vision. It was the label's best-selling EP of the last 12 months and the pair themselves were the 6th most charted artists of 2012 by Resident Advisor's community. As well as a constant flow of original material, Jamie and Rich have produced remixes for labels such as BPitch Control, Get Physical, Cityfox, Diynamic, Exploited, Gomma, Tsuba and Leftroom (where it all started).

Meanwhile, thanks to their fun-filled, energetic DJ sets, this past year Audiojack have been enlisted to rock dancefloors at some of the world's best-known and most respected clubs, including: Kater Holzig, Ritter Butzke & Watergate (Berlin), Sankeys (Ibiza), Rex Club (Paris), Hive (Zurich), Harry Klein (Munich), Electric Pickle (Miami), Ego (Hamburg) as well as past appearances at venues such as fabric in London, Space in Ibiza, Zouk in Singapore and D-Edge in Brazil. Add to this their list of appearances at smaller boutique festivals (which they prefer to huge corporate events), including: Found (London), Jack’s (Kent), Straf_werk (Amsterdam), Into the Woods Festival (Amersfoort) and the Rainbow Serpent Festival (Melbourne).

As they continue to evolve and move forward, Audiojack are now at a stage where they can truly blossom as both a production duo and label managers. In the studio they have left sample-based music behind in favour of creating their own sounds, working with live vocalists from Stee Downes and Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem to regular collaborators like Kevin Knapp. A 'less is more' approach is now fully integrated into their production process and has subsequently permeated through into their label ethos. “We throw away many more tracks than we release,” they say, keeping the emphasis on quality over quantity – the foundation for success in so many industries.

Meanwhile Gruuv is slowly developing into much more than a label, with the duo steadily building an empire which will become a fully rounded home for their releases, bookings, publishing, podcasts and events with a long-term view to take care of other artists. Their roster currently consists of producers such as A1 Bassline, Copy Paste Soul, Chris James/Coat of Arms and Black Loops with luminaries such as Mr.G, Jimmy Edgar and John Tejada also contributing to the label's output. Funnily enough, the HQ of both Gruuv and Audiojack will soon relocate to Ibiza, bringing their story full circle and heralding a new chapter in their careers.

Remaining true to their beliefs and staying relevant without being contrived is at the core of Audiojack's success. The duo never rest on their laurels, reinventing themselves when necessary, though in a very organic manner. In today's fast-paced, ever growing world of electronic music it's not always easy to keep a cool head and to maintain one's credibility and integrity. However, Audiojack stand proud as a prime example of how to do things the right way and long may they continue to do so...

In these times of uncertainty music remains one of our most reliable and accessible pleasures. It’s importance to our wellbeing has never been more obvious. We’ve continued to make music remotely but we learn so much about a record from road testing, and without a chance to hear them on big systems with live human reactions it’s difficult to know when they’re finished. So we’ve put together a journey mix with lots of our newest productions, and we welcome your critiques...

Kater Blau is one of our favourite places, maybe the club we’ve played most in the last decade. We love playing longer sets – 2 hours never seems quite enough in any good club but even 4 hours in Kater seems to go in the blink of an eye. There’s a timelessness to it, a dancefloor unity, a liberation from mobile phones and the outside world. We feel a freedom to play whatever we like, which is the best feeling really as a DJ...

On Christmas Day eve we flew out to Zurich to play at Hive club’s 24hr party. We’ve played Hive quite a few times over the years and it’s one of our favourites. They’ve moved the DJ booth since last time and the sound is awesome; really clear, crisp and a pleasure to play on! Our set was also recorded. It’s quite different to the techno vibes from our last recording at Watergate in November; more house with lots of Audiojack, new and old. We had a lot of fun, thanks to Animal Trainer for inviting us…

Crosstown Rebels rolled into Warsaw on 18th November, and we were invited to warm up for label boss Damian Lazarus. Our set from the night was recorded; you can check it out here.

Smolna is an ace venue; reminiscent of clubs in Berlin. No photos are allowed, which we applaud. It’s easy to get lost inside it’s maze of small rooms and corridors which gives the club a raw underground bunker vibe. The kinda place where you stay until long after dawn and still wonder where the time went...

We always enjoy going back to Frankfurt to play at Tanzhaus West; we were there just last week and our set was recorded.

The club has three main rooms joined by a labyrinth of corridors, all with their own unique charm; Tanzhaus West, Dora Brilliant and Landungsbrücken, plus a café and an outside area. We played in the Landungsbrücken this time from around 4am. Hope you enjoy.

Deltawerk is Applescal and Hessel Stuut aka Polynation. Been big fans of Applescal for a while now (his Leone Highway EP was one of our favourites from last year), and we’ve been really enjoying the releases on his Atomnation label. Highly recommend checking out this full EP as the original and Marvin & Guy remix are really nice too.

The EP has found promo support from DJs including Ame, Maceo Plex, Dusky, Richy Ahmed, Michael Mayer, Marco Carola, &ME, Catz 'n Dogz and Nick Warren.

We love Berlin. If the winters weren’t so cold we’d probably live there, so commuting from Ibiza to Berlin on an October weekend is about as good as life gets for us. Even better that we got to DJ at one of our favourite clubs, Kater Blau. Here’s our recorded set from the night…
