Waifs & Strays vs Lukas & DJ Sneak (Heidi Presents Jackathon Jams)


Bristolian dream team, Waifs & Strays vs. Lukas meets Chicago legend, DJ Sneak sums up the next Jackathon Jams package from queen of the scene, Heidi. Loaded with bleeps, bumps and bass, A-side ‘Gimme Luv’ is driven by its disco chugging bassline and low slung groove, while the ‘Stokes Croft Dub’version gives the track a warped, stoned haze. Second original ‘Dance Me (Dance You)’ combines heavy low end with more 90s female vox swagger and DJ Sneak delivers his unmistakable funked up Chicago style in a boogie injected rendition of ‘Gimme Luv’.


 It was love at first listen for Heidi who announced on BBC Radio 1 that the debut track from Waifs & Strays ‘Yeah Yeah’ (Leftroom) was the ‘dirtiest house track I have heard in a very long time’. It was only a matter of time before they entered the Jackathon Jams hall of fame. Waifs & Strays first broke onto the scene in 2011 with huge releases following on Futureboogie and Hot Creations and Dirtybird.


Lukas is another Bristol talent displayed on labels such as local house institution Futureboogie and Moda Black. Lukas also runs the Alfresco Disco events and record label. Often collaborating with label mate Christophe, this time Lukas got to work with Waifs & Strays in his Stokes Croft studio and (between games of basketball) they crafted these two massive tracks for Jackathon Jams.


DJ Sneak needs little or no introduction. As one of house music’s most outspoken characters and prolific producers (Classic Recordings, Strictly Rhythm, Cajual and own labels Magnetic Recordings and DJ Sneak Records etc), the original house gangsta is now a figurehead in the I’m A House Gangster collective and still completing rocking the worlds best clubs after two decades in the game.
