Jack 2 Jack: Jack The Tab Unreleased Track

Jackmaster gives us his top 10 Chicago tunes alongside an unreleased track from Jack The Tab and we find out just how many times can we say Jack in one article

This weekend at London's XOYO, one of the founding fathers of Chicago House, Farley Jackmaster Funk, will be joined by Richard Norris of Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve (with Mr Erol Alkan) under his Jack the Tab collective's guise (made up of the likes of and Genesis P-Orridge) where he'll take us back to '88 with a set of proto UK acid and more. In support will be the residents of Just Jack, (not the horrifically large forehead-ed Camden kid of the same name nor the guy off Will & Grace), but the Bristolian club night with past guests like Seth Troxler, Andrew Weatherall, and Carl Craig, taking the helm of room 2 with the Dogme residents for one hell of a jackin' night. Glasgow's young Jackmaster of Dress 2 Sweat and Numbers (Jamie XX, SBTRKT, Deadboy) will also be making an appearance, and here gives us his Top Ten Chicago House Tunes. It’s Time To Jack.
