Jacky’s love for music started young when he was growing up in East Africa – It was there his passion for drumming took hold and he came to realise that music could be more than just a creative outlet and his sights were set on forging a career in the industry.
Fast forward to summer 2017 and Jacky had a string of releases; namely on seminal London label DFTD, where he dropped hit EP ‘Sensation’ which took him to the top five on Beatport’s tech house chart. His ties to to the label do not end there, as he also secured an Ibiza residency at the now infamous Defected parties, taking place at Eden every weekend throughout the summer of 2017 and 2018 respectively.
Jacky cut his teeth with Barcelona based institution Elrow in 2016 with the release of hit EP ‘Diskotek’. Beyond Elrow, Jacky has made his own mark on the club scene with the launch of his own event series – Jacky & Friends – which have been held at a some of Europe’s well known venues including Sankeys MCR, Fire London, Digital Newcastle, Mint Warehouse Leeds, Eden Ibiza’s back room and Benimusa Park.
2019 looks even bigger, with releases lined up on Repopulate Mars, Desert Hearts, Eton Messy and more. First up is the release on Desert Hearts, dubbed the ‘Firepower EP‘ which is out on the 30th of November this year with the PRE-ORDER available now.
