The Numbers man packs in house, techno, left field bass and more into the upcoming 28-track mix.
Jackmaster has mixed Fabriclive 57, due for release in May.
You might know Jackmaster as a core member of Numbers, the Scottish label and long running club night, but you won't find his name on any record sleeves. This is because he's a DJ through and through, so much so that he rejects the notion of production as a prerequisite to success.
"The reason that I'm not really producing music is because I just think that at the moment, I'd be doing it for the wrong reasons," he says. "You shouldn't make music with the objective of furthering your career as a DJ, or to become famous. Too many people are doing that these days I think. I'll make music when I feel that I need to do it as a means of expressing myself."
For the moment Jackmaster is content to express himself in the mix, as Fabriclive 57 shows. Coursing through almost 30 tunes in just over an hour, the collection nods to classic techno (Model 500, Underground Resistance), classic house (Inner City, Larry Heard) and various forms of UK bass (Addison Groove, SBTRKT, Hudson Mohawke), all while keeping up a no-nonsense party vibe.
"I don't think you could ever call me a heads DJ. It's always been about the party for me and I think that really comes through in the mix."
