Based in Washington DC, Jackson Ryland is a producer who's been around for a hot minute. His latest record has just dropped on Step Recordings, a well established imprint run by Catz N' Dogz. However, he has been making music for many years before this having released material on the likes of 1432 R and Cahoots Records.
His sound is pretty versatile, drawing upon influence from the age of Italian Dream House and beyond - melody is important, as is spaciousness and ambience. All of his music makes sure to take the above into consideration and whilst his latest material for Step Recordings is arguably his most heavy hitting to date, it is still just as listenable from the perspective of an individual.
In a recent interview for The Washington Post jackson reflected on the nature of his approach to music - it's far more than just material for the dance:
"I want the music to complement something that’s already in your head and brighten that idea for you.”
We invited him to record a mix for us and he does so in fine style, this one comes with high recommendation.
