The beginning of the whole Jackstraw story started in 2009. Four friends grew up together and went out to the same clubs. They shared one thing: a love for music. As two of them already had some success in producing music, the idea to produce music together became vivid. Jackstraw was born.
As mentioned, in 2008 two of them already got a release. This was the trigger for them to start a new project. As their two other friends were exploring the music scene as well, they wanted to be a part of this story. They started producing together with passion and love for the music, hoping to share this love and passion with a bunch of people.
In 2010, Jackstraw entered the housemusic scene in Belgium. Their first tracks were voted 2nd and 6th in the dj2dj top 10 for two weeks. At a certain point, a remix of Stromae - Alors on danse made it to a famous Belgian Radiostaton: Topradio. Other tracks were supported by Belgian deejays and played in some famous clubs like Verso, Noxx and Carré.
In 2011, Jackstraw became popular amongst local people and they made it to some parties. They also got their first release in this year; a remix for a Croatian talent on Harkee Records. This was a memorable moment for these friends and a reason to keep going. At the end of 2011, Jackstraw participated in a deejay contest to become a resident deejay on Topradio Westhoek. Unfortunatly, they couldn't make it to the final, but were given the opportunity to become a resident as the crew wanted to show them they appreciated their music. Jackstraw grabbed this opportunity and is now officialy Topradio Westhoek resident.
Jackstraw is always trying to deliver quality sets on parties. Jackstraw wants to stand out by mixing ‘underground’ music, not always appreciated in Belgium, and they won’t give up to awake the crowd that there’s still a lot of music to discover!
