For SUN DOWN CIRCLE #018 we have one for the more discerning dancers out there. Jack J is a main staple on one of our favourite record labels Mood Hut and had some of the biggest tracks of 2015, such as Thirstin; Hitting No2 in the Resident Advisor end of year charts. He is one of the best producers and DJs breaking though and it’s a privilege to bring him to Bali .
Also included on the line-up are Babicka and Noise In My Head both of which are being tipped for big things in the near future, so we recommend you make the most of this opportunity to see them in the intimacy of the sundeck.
Jack J is a music producer and deejay from British Columbia’s Vancouver City. He is a part of the Mood Hut group and at the same time one half of Pender Street Steppers. He is also the second youngest and only Anglophone member of the popular but now on hiatus C’est Life band from Quebec.
Jack took the dance music world by storm in recent months with the release of his monster of a track ‘Thirstin’ which not only became an anthem on dance floors across the globe but was placed number 2 in the industry standard Resident Advisor chart for their top tracks of the year.

At twenty four years of age, Babicka has already clocked up a five year weekly residency, founded two vinyl imprints, and curated and organised over two hundred parties in his hometown of Adelaide. His inability to sit still is just as evident in his DJ sets, blending mismatching genres and spanning eras both current and before his time to create a unique atmosphere that makes as much sense in a dank basement as a sun soaked garden party.
As a producer, Babicka has found a soft spot in the hearts of many, with his tweaked out slight on acid, or more dub related excursions that have drawn comparison to early Chain Reaction cuts. With just two releases to his name, the promising Australian has found support across the board, with a sound that refuses to be pigeonholed.

NOISE IN MY HEAD
NIMH is a radio show driven by Michael Kucyk.
