Here’s some more of autumn’s highlight’s from our exciting roster…
Bristol youngsters THE JACQUES are one of 2016’s sure big names to look out for. After a busy summer/early autumn of brilliant releases including their ARTFUL DODGER EP on Gary Powell from The Libertines’ label 25 Hour Convenience Store, which saw tonnes of airplay on BBC RADIO 1, BBC 6 Music, BBC Intro West, Radio X to name some, PLUS a long list of great shows which included Glastonbury 2015, Great Escape, Isle Of Wight Festival and BBC INTRODUCING READING AND LEEDS FESTIVAL 2015, it seemed like topping all of this would be pretty difficult! The BBC Radio 1 and BBC Introducing support continued on strong and The Jacques were 1 of 5 of the best new up and coming new British acts selected to be flown out to perform CMJ music marathon in New York City in association with the PRS Foundation and BBC Introducing. The Jacques played the Rough Trade Record Store in New York City and the coverage was widely featured on BBC Radio 1 by Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart and more on BBC Radio 1.This all just happened mid October 2015 and the wheels show no sign of stopping indeed! The Jacques are currently out in Amsterdam where they recently performed live on one of the biggest TV stations in The Netherlands and have just had their debut pretty dj ep released in Japan!…..The JACQUES are gearing up to take it over!
