Rob & Jack's Exclusive Mix
 
Rob & Jack are on the cusp of a career milestone. Ahead of the release of their comprehensive debut Extra Regular EP, the duo have crafted an outstanding ID filled Exclusive Mix! We took a deep look at the two plus years of work that have gone into the landmark release and the Swedish duo had a lot of interesting insights and exciting news to share! Turn it loud and enjoy!
 
 
How did you approach your Exclusive Mix and how does the track selection compare to your club sets currently?
With this mix we really wanted to focus on mostly our own music, and to show people what we've been working on for the past couple of months! We also wanted to support our friends in the scene and play stuff that we really like at the moment.

Can you highlight three tracks or artists included and why you chose to include them?
We love the track “Snakecharmer” by Blinders! It has everything, it's groovy but still pretty hard and different at the same time, we love it!

Second off, our brother Garmiani's song “Fogo.” We've loved it since the day we first heard it, big drums and sick vocals. It's kind of from the same type of style that we come from, and Garmiani is constantly supporting us so having this one in our set was a no-brainer.

And lastly we play a lot of tracks by Will K simply because everything that the little Aussie touches is fucking fire. One of the best producers in the scene right now in our opinion.

Can you talk about when the idea to release an EP started and how long you’ve been working on the project as a whole?
I think the idea came about a year ago, we had a lot of finished material and we didn't know what to do with it. We like moving away from the mainstream, and thought of an EP as an idea since not a lot of producers in our genre are releasing comprehensive EPs.

The first song was produced and written about two and a half years ago and we've been working on all of the tracks to this day haha. It's been a long time in the making and we have been choosing which tracks to put in the EP for quite a while, but we're super happy with the final result and we hope people will like it!
 

What do you feel are some uniting themes between the tracks?
Well all of the tracks carry their own theme and we wanted every track to stand out on its own, but we think all of the tracks have a cool and a bit of a “rougher” attitude both vocal and production wise and that is something that we really like.

Can you pick two tracks from the EP and take us through the production process for the tracks?
The one we've been working on the longest is a track that we did together with a Swedish rapper called Lazee about two years ago. We wanted to make a track inspired by the UK grime scene and that's how the production came about. Since Lazee is living in the UK, we thought he would be a perfect fit for the topline. We played him the track and he loved it! He flew over to Sweden for a weekend and we recorded the topline in an hour or two and then it was finished, although continued by like one and half years of mixing haha.

The other track that we wanted to talk about is one we did with Caribbean artist Kerwin Du Bois. Our manager had been on vacation in Barbados where he heard Kerwin’s soca music for the first time, and when he presented his music to us we immediately knew we had to work with him. We like doing different and unexpected kinds of collaborations instead of the typical “house toplines.” Doing something different is often a good way to learn and is usually a good way to be noticed and remembered.

Which track from the EP do you see working best live?
We did a remode of the track we did with Lazee as an intro version and everytime we play it the crowd just goes off!

 
Do you have a personal favorite production or one you are particularly proud of?
We're super proud of the track that we did with Richie Loop, it's a super banging track and Richie really nailed the topline. And the second break is like a fusion with a progressive house breakdown and a dancehall track, we love it!

Initially you were going to self release the EP and now you’re releasing with Sony/disco:wax. Can you tell us some more about that decision?
Yes we were actually going to release it by ourselves, but we later realized how much work and effort it was going to take for us to do it properly from a PR standpoint. We just don't have the time or muscles to do that since we want to focus on making music, not promoting it. So we ended up sending the EP to Sony Music/disco:wax and they loved it and we're really happy to be working with them.

How will you look to carry the momentum forward from the EP release and what else has you excited for 2018?
Ouff we have SO much new music coming out, exciting collaborations and big shows coming up! There are also a couple of remixes coming of the EP tracks, but we can't say too much about that at the moment. But yeah if you're wondering what we'll release these coming months, listen to the mix!
