It’s been five years since Jack started in the cosy surroundings of Kerma as a weekly Friday house party. Since then we’ve lost ourselves in music at Rosegarden and found groove in our hearts at Kuudes Linja while in 2009 Helsinki will be jackin’ at Redrum soundlab every two months.Jack’s mission is to bring you fresh and underground house in it’s all forms whether it’s tech, electro, filter, vocal, tribal or progressive. On Friday 12th of December we’ll celebrate these five hedonistic years with a birthday P.A.R.T.Y.
Star of the anniversary event is a true legend – Jody Wisternoff of Way Out West. He is responsible for progressive house classics like Ajare, Domination, Mindcircus, Killa and Cold Drink, Hot Girl and is still one of electronic music scene’s most vibrant stars. And one of my personal favourites too. Today his sound is a sophicticated yet rocking mix of various forms of house and I’m honoured to have him here.
Other jackmasters of the night are the original residents Lil’ Tony and myself with lights by Severi from Unity and co-promoting by DJ Orion. To celebrate these five years and the last event in Kuudes Linja we’ll have special drinks, snacks & vibes served from 22 till 23. There are no advance tickets so I recommend to arrive early to ensure jackin’ at this rave! Flyer can be seen in the gallery section of my site and if you have photos from this party please post them to Flickr and add tag orkidea12122008 and they’ll show up on this gig’s page at djorkidea.com/wp. 2.0 Raving!
