This mix is one for the ages; provided by one of the head honchos of the Glaswegian imprint NUMBERS, Jackmaster has provided DJ sets that stretch time, space and continents simultaneously. Juggling between classic American cuts provided by Chicago and Detroit producers, as well as proper house, funky and bass tunes from the UK and rest of the world, Jackmaster doesn’t hesitate to cue up something that’s a favorite to some and obscure to others. As evident in his Sonar 2010 set, he pushes the envelope of “trendy” and doesn’t just play the newest and freshest dubs, it’s all about vibes. Whether it’s dropping classic Daft Punk, Aphex Twin or throwing down Chaka Khan, he’s fearless and a total maestro on the decks. After a few wishes upon a star, URB got theirs; an exclusive and obviously packed nearly two-hour mix from the man himself. Considering that we’ll be seeing him at UNSOUND 2010 in Krakow (back-to-back with Deadboy) in the coming days, consider this a preview of what his set could be. This very well could be the mix of the year, blending classic, current and everything in between. Be sure to keep your ears peeled for forthcoming NUMBERS tunes in this mix from URB favourites Ill Blu and Mosca. Check the massive tracklist and download link after the jump.
URB has an exclusive taste of “Ther Percolator” 2010 with Claude Von Strokes strutting and stuttering remix. Plus the video released last night of Cajmere’s own update. The video features Kid Sister, DJ Gantman, Footworkingz and Future Funk. And if you recognize the jerking toddlers in the video, then you’ve been watching America’s Got Talent.

For nearly two decade, Curtis Jones has been one of dance music’s most commanding and intriguing personas. First as Cajmere and then Green Velvet, the Chicago jock has produced cross genre hits from 1992′s smash “The Percolator” to 2007′s hipster anthem “Shake & Pop.” Most recently, Jones released “Everybody Wants” with Kid Sister, just one of the new generation of artist who owe much of their sound to Jones original jackin’ style. But Green Velvet is still the king o the dance floor as this exclusive one-hour mix for URB proves.
