As he readies the release of debut single 'Go Deep on October 12 via Duke Dumont-helmed label Blasé Boys Club, Jax Jones is pleased to unveil a new rework of the track by Leeds dance producer and DJ Grum, fitting the celebratory refrain of the original with acid house synth stabs, lush swelling pads, punchy bass rumbles, and a big room ambience.
'Go Deep' has been quick to generate enthusiasm and support, gathering spins from Annie Mac, Mistajam and Danny Howard on Radio 1 and 1Xtra, picking up praise across the blogosphere with over a quarter of a million plays on Soundcloud, and being featured by the Eton Messy YouTube channel.
Jax Jones recently made his ceremonious introduction as the collaborator on Duke Dumont's #1 single 'I GOT U', which has gone on to become one of the years biggest singles and club anthems, topping the iTunes chart in 13 countries and going to no. 3 on the US Billboard chart.
The rest of the year will see Jax appearing at Brixton Electric alongside the likes of Aeroplane, Alex Metric and Jonas Rathsman, Warehouse Project with Blasé Boys Club and Motion Bristol, in addition to being a regular fixture at the Duke Dumont-hosted residency at Sankey's in Ibiza (full dates below)
Bringing together an eclectic set of influences honed from years of work and play as musician and record collector, 'Go Deep' effortlessly combines elements of 90's urban pop, the sparkling French house of Alan Braxe and DJ Falcon, DFA cowbells and a celebratory and transcendent chorus, rushing out of the gate like a summer dance floor call to
