‘Blacklight (Original Mix)’ the title track sets the vibe from the off, a punchy kick drum, driving hats and groovy percussion sit alongside an infectious vocal loop which is backed up by a low driving bassline. All of this moulds it into a dancefloor banger that you can’t help but rave to. ‘Cluster (Original Mix)’ continues proceedings in a similar manner, crisp hats, punchy drums, swingy percussion blend with a thumping bassline and a trippy-leaning lead sound which help to give this track its own unique feel. Finally ’Mental State (Original Mix)’ rounds things off in a uptempo, harding hitting fashion. Aggressive sounding drums, raw basslines, and a burgeoning synth instantly demand your attention making it a true club weapon.

Stoke-on-Trent DJ and production duo Jordan Forrester & Jordan Russell, Also known as Jordan² were once good friends at school and soon become distant strangers once they had left in 2012.
Before getting together, They were both individually DJ’ing and producing. Jforrester got his first pair of decks back in 2010, Whilst at the time he was big into Hip-Hop and Grime and JRussell got his first set of decks when he turned 16. Forrester didn’t discover his love for House and Techno until he visited a local event in Stoke once he turned 18. At this point JRussell was already big into House and Techno. The duo both started producing at different times, Russell was experimenting with Hip-Hop beats at around 14 years old, and then later started to experiment with House and Techno. Forrester didn’t start producing until he was around 16, But didn’t take it very seriously until he started a music technology and production course at 18 years old, He is now at Staffordshire University for music production.
In early 2017 during a local House event in Stoke the two distant strangers crossed paths again and were able to share their passion that they both have for the love of music, production and DJ’ing. From there they decided to organise some studio sessions together to see what ideas they could come up with. A year later and they have multiple releases in the bag with many more projects lined up for the future.
Since getting together Jordan² have played at numerous events across Stoke, Freakshow, The Exchange Free Parties and Bonanza just to name a few. They also recently made their debut for The Move a well known dance event in the Midlands who bring the biggest international DJ’s in House and Techno to Stoke on a monthly basis. The lads have supported some big artists in the scene along the way such as Hannah Wants, Jacky, GW Harrison, The Golden Boy and Jimmy Switch.
