Paul Jackson "The Seeker / Chaos And Order"

Out Now on Audio Therapy

As a DJ, Paul Jackson has a career that spans past the last decade, has taken him to over 50 countries of the world and has seen him hold residencies at Amnesia in Ibiza, and The Ministry Of Sound in London to name but two high profile venues where he has showcased his skills. As a producer he's produced several critically acclaimed singles for Darren Emerson's Underwater label, the most notable being the 'The Push'. Dave Seaman has supported Paul's work over the last few years, and now brings him into the Audiotherapy fold with this excellent AA release.

'The Seeker' is a quality string led piece of music. It's cinematic style arrangements and heavy drum patterns build subtly, sucking you into the track, and you can just imagine how it sounds as an intro to a set or in an early warm up in a big room. However, once the intro fades away to let the rocking tribal rhythms and tough percussive do the talking, the track proves it's worth as the perfect choice to get the room rocking and the night off to a proper start.

'Chaos And Order' is the bigger of the two tracks on this package, with a devastating speaker tweaking sub bassline making it's presence felt early on. As the heavy techno-edged stabs and deep melodies slice through the bottom heavy groove, the dark and gritty tendencies of this track are fully released, with a cool spoken vocal break leading into a massive riff-led climax that will cause uproar on the dancefloor.

Paul Jackson is without a doubt a legend amongst house music fans, and whilst these two tracks see him take things to a tougher level than fans of his earlier work might be accustomed to, the DJ and radio support for this single earns it a well deserved place alongside the rest of his excellent production work, and is set to be another milestone in his wide and varied career.
