Iain James Kirk aka Jack! Who? is a multi-disciplined music industry professional. The DEAD CERT. and MÉTIER label navigator is a dedicated DJ, promotion guru, graphic designer and creator of deathtechno.com, one of the world’s most respected techno resources.
Iain’s expansive DJ career of over 15 years and well over 200 gigs also includes running clubbing events like By Royal Appointment to national acclaim as well as multiple residencies. Having played alongside Paul Woolford, Rui Da Silva, Thomas Schumacher, and Dillinja, his love of serious and diverse techno has taken him to places such as Berlin, Ibiza, Scotland and beyond.
His own production collaborations have been played on BBC Radio 1 and featured on XLR8R, while tracks he has discovered for DEAD CERT. Records have been soaked up by luminaries like Richie Hawtin, Charlotte de Witte, Rødhåd, Amelie Lens, Dave Clarke, Cari Lekebusch, and The Chemical Brothers in their coveted Essential Mix.
Taking a new venture into what he likes to call ‘soultechnica’ electronic music, his MÉTIER imprint caters for deep, dreamy, dub, techno, acid, electro and ambient vibes with abstract grooves that are reminiscent of legendary labels such as Warp and Sven Väth’s Cocoon, complete with its unique collage artwork by local North East of England artist Grassi.
