Fresh off the release of their second album, ‘Surface Tension’, Audiojack are entering what might be called the major phase of their career. This, of course, is not to diminish the solid reputation they have built over the last fifteen years as DJs, producers, remixers and label curators with original releases on labels like Crosstown Rebels, 2020Vision and Hot Creations, remixes on labels including Moon Harbour, B-Pitch Control and Diynamic, and artists like Underworld, Groove Armada and Hot Since 82 who have enlisted their talents for remixes.
Starting out on Ralph Lawson’s 2020Vision recordings in 2006, the label in which they released their debut album ‘Radio’ and several bestselling EPs including ‘Get Serious’ and ‘No Equal Sides’, in 2016 they signed to Jamie Jones’ infamous Hot Creations label with the heavily played ‘Vibrate’ EP, and subsequently joined up with Damian Lazarus and his Crosstown Rebels crew – starting out with ‘Turya’ which brings the words of a guided meditation into a club setting, then ‘Implications’, one of many of their collaborations with Kevin Knapp on vocals, followed by ‘Reverie’ featuring the voice of Osho which became one of the bestselling tracks of 2018, cementing their position as Crosstown Rebels bestselling artist in recent years. It was therefore a natural decision to release their sophomore album ‘Surface Tension’ on the imprint in 2021.
Running their own dancefloor focused label Gruuv since 2010 has provided an alternative home for their original music. EPs such as ‘Stay Glued’ and ‘These Days’, plus their remake of Jaydee’s classic ‘Plastic Dreams’, were received with critical acclaim. The label has garnered a reputation for nurturing the best talent, both new and old, counting Emanuel Satie, David Mayer, Marc Romboy, Stimming, Joyce Muniz, Whitesquare and Gorge amongst its catalogue.
