In this series, Selections, we invite DJs, producers and label heads to dig into their digital crates and share the contents of their Bandcamp collections. While hearing new music played out by your favourite selectors remains largely on hold as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s never been easier, or more important, to support the artists and imprints releasing tracks, albums, EPs and comps in the midst of all the madness. In lieu of opportunities to discover new records on the dancefloor, Selections will give you the chance to nab sounds from the crates of tastemakers, and support the people behind them while you’re at it. Win-win, right?
This week, Belfast native and scene champion Jordan Nocturne shines a light on an array of club cuts - from euphoric Italo and acid-tinged bangers, to dub edits of Talking Heads. The DJ, producer and Nocturne label head has been at the heart of the Northern Irish scene for almost two decades, nurturing new talent at Belfast club night The Night Institute, and becoming a staple on the line-up at the city's beloved AVA Festival & Conference.
After launching his label Nocturne back in 2016, Jordan most-recently debuted the Nocturne Edits series — which has seen support from Midland, Gerd Janson and Erol Alkan — and launched From Belfast With Love, a charity compilation series. Away from his projects which are closer to home, Jordan's touring schedule sees him make stops in Berlin, New York, Japan & London, and recording mixes for Truants, Ninja Tune, DJ Mag and Beats In Space, alongside Midland. Earlier this month, Jordan released his latest EP, 'Gemini Boy' — featuring a remix from Studio Barnhus' Kornel Kovacs — which traverses his signature party-starting styles of electro, disco and synth-pop.
