Listen to Alcatraz Harry’s Hypnotic ‘Ode to Frankfurt’ Off Jackmaster’s ‘DJ Kicks’
The off-kilter instrumental jam is the latest release from the Scottish DJ's upcoming mix
Something about a bouncy instrumental can send you into a trance on the dance floor, especially when a song like “Ode to Frankfurt” by Alcatraz Harry is blasting out of the speakers. The Frankfurt, Germany DJ produced the track as a musical poem of sorts to his hometown, and it’s a brilliant centerpiece on the newest DJ Kicks mix by Scottish DJ Jackmaster. The brain-burrowing track is a technotronic mix of shuffling drums and turntable-scratching — possibly borrowed from the outro to the Chemical Brothers’ “Hey Boy Hey Girl” — that evolves in unexpected directions over the course of eight minutes, without ever loosening its vice-like grip on your subconscious.
Take a listen below and pre-order Jackmaster’s DJ Kicks mix here, due out July 8th.
