"The pandemic has definitely been a big change to the routine but I think compared to a lot of people I can’t complain! For me it has meant more time spent on music production."
- Jack Dimanche
What style of mix have you gone for?
The mix is deep/ minimal-house, some of my favourite releases over the past few months. Some seriously good artists in there to keep an eye out for!
What DJs have inspired your sound?
I think the true answer would be a long list of artists over lots of different genres! So I’ll dodge the question and say some of the key inspirations that drew me to music production would be the likes of Bonobo, Jon Hopkins, Dusky, Lovebirds and the list goes on…
What’s your favourite part of the mix?
The closing track is one of my favourites, I will leave you to find out what that is…
How has the pandemic affected you both?
The pandemic has definitely been a big change to the routine but I think compared to a lot of people I can’t complain! For me it has meant more time spent on music production.
Has your style of music/sound changed during lockdown?
Ironically I think my style during lockdown has changed to a style which is more suited to being played on a night out... At the moment I’d say my style is moving from melodic house to minimal house, really interested in heavily swinged grooves which is reflected in the sound of this mix.
What do you think clubbing will look like in 2021?
Hopefully like clubbing in 2019!
What’s your top tip for surviving lockdown?
My top tips would be spending as much time as possible outdoors, keeping moving, and picking up a new hobby.
Do you have any 2021 goals you are happy to share?
I’m planning on releasing an EP this year and line up some festival gigs for the summer of 2022! Thanks BACKTOBACK Sounds.
