The new jewel in Bristol’s crown, Motion re-opens its doors in October for another season of the highly-charged and hugely loved ‘In:Motion’ series.  Still reeling from the success of last year’s sell-out autumn events, 2011 sees them come back bigger, better, stronger, louder with the hottest electronic acts of the moment gracing the infamous Bristol ramp skate-park, turned rave haven. 
2010 marked the birth of the In:Motion series when the Bristol based promoter team joined forces with the countries most esteemed music brands, bringing with them the finest talent of the underground music scene to the West Country. Creating a succession of unparalleled parties, each one delivered a mind-blowing night of sensational sounds and immaculate production placing In:Motion firmly on the musical map.   As a slew of fresh and talented artists continue to bubble up from the beating heart of Bristol such as Julio Bashmore, Redlight, Eats Everything, Baobinga, Waifs & Strays, Bowski, just the last year alone, the city continues to draw attention and attract producers and DJs from outside. Everyone wants a piece of the sounds and skills that are evolving in the West Country’s musical.
Bristol’s renowned musical heritage, coupled with the strongest brands in the country has resulted in some of the most highly innovative and respected musical programming out there. Those who’ve devastated the Motion dance-floor last year, triumphantly return: Hospitality, BLOC, Annie Mac Presents, Bugged Out!, Run and local heavy-hitting party starters Shit The Bed and Just Jack who collectively brought with them High Contrast, Claude Vonstroke, Simian Mobile Disco, Jamie Jones, DMZ and Joy Orbison.  Joining the In:Motion fold for the first time bringing more interstellar acts to the table throughout the autumn season, we welcome Hessle Audio, FWD Rinse, Field Day Night, Jamie XX, local boys Futureboogie XL, Blowpop and Invisible Circus.
As a venue Motion is carving itself out to be one of the most exciting and unrivalled clubs around. Now nearing festival-calibre this year, they expand into yet more areas of the huge sprawling skate park creating a warren of separate spaces all hosting their own unique party. The raw confines bore witness last year to the magic of man of the moment Seth Troxler in the main Skate Park, Roska and Untold in the Tunnel, Tensanke lighting things up in The Cave with the addition of the stunning Waterside Terrace providing the perfect backdrop. Now with things being pushed even further into the double warehouse as well as outside in the car park which comes equipped with food court, heated seating area and photo-booth, you can let yourself get lost in Motion’s wondrous world of entertainment and outstanding music.

Heidi presents Jackathon out July 25th on Get Physical

“In the beginning there was Jack and Jack had a groove, and from this groove came the groove of all grooves… And house music was born. House is an uncontrollable desire to jack your body. And in this house the keeper is Jack.” Until he met Heidi…

The first lady of BBC Radio 1 and major female force of dance music, Heidi, is inviting you to move your body, and when she asks there’s not many that can refuse. Introduced personally by one of the kings of house music, Derrick Carter, Heidi presents the Jackathon is a rollercoaster ride full of raw funk, shaking out those grooves until you can’t stop moving and leaving no question as to who is the true queen of jack.

Heidi´s Jackathon parties started October 2010 as a concept to bring some new life into the dancefloor. She invited some of her favourite artists and friends to play alongside her and to make the crowds bounce in Berlin and then London. Now the Jackathon holds residencies in both cities, as well as Paris, Manchester and Amsterdam, and it has brought the jack to many cities around the world.

The Jackathon is about energy and feeling and expressing something that lurks deep in the soul. The events have become a phenomenon due to their loose musical philosophy and family feel. Heidi felt now is the time to encapsulate its message and share it with the world. Keeping it in the family spirit, Heidi took The Jackathon compilation to her original home label, Get Physical, and asked 16 of her closest peers and artists she admires to produce a track specifically for the compilation. Juan MacLean, Jamie Jones, Soul Clap, Solomun, Deetron, Anja Schneider & And.id, label mates DJ T and many more stepped up to the challenge.

The result is an invigorating journey into the roots of music culture it is influenced by the schools of 90´s new york style hip hop and house (Juan MacLean ‘Love in Tatters’), funk (Soul Clap ‘Incoming Bitch’), acid (DJ T feat Nick Maurer ‘High’) and explores new realms for jacking music (Steve Bug ‘Jack Is Back’). Referencing where it all began in the infamous lyrics of Fingers Inc, The Jackathon takes us through the ages and features original vocal drops made for the mix by the one and only Derrick Carter, who has been a major inspiration to Heidi a one of the main for her loving house music so much.

“I asked 16 artists that I admire to make an exclusive track for me as a little gift to the people who have supported what I do – some known, some unknown. It was also a gift to me, as I had no idea what these artists were going to make me. The result was more than I could have wished for. All of the tracks are totally different from each other and super fresh, which is what I wanted and keeps with the theme of the night. Diversity and change are always welcome.” Heidi on The Jackathon 2011.

Originally hailing from Ontario, Canada, Heidi moved to London in 2000 and was one of the creators of Phonica Records, known to many DJs as the best record store in the world. She became part of the Get Physical family in their glory years and is one of a handful of non-British presenters asked to host her own show on the prestigious BBC Radio 1. Since the show started in 2008, her forward thinking nature has continually shone through and she has broken artists such as Wolf + Lamb, Seth Troxler, Art Department, Jamie Jones, Nicolas Jaar first on the airwaves.

“Heidi at Sunday School was one of the best DJ sets I´ve ever seen. The woman plays with honesty and love.”  Nicolas Jaar, 2011.

Heidi has always been really supportive of my productions and my Hot Natured label series from the start. She’s a cool girl and I’m super happy to be involved in the next stage of  the Jackathon.” Jamie Jones, 2011.

A female icon, Heidi is often the unsung hero of her tribe. Hers is one of the only mainstream radio shows consistently championing the sounds of the current house and techno underground movement and she is personally resurrecting the music of the early Chicago masters. With a foot in the past but an eye on the future, Heidi masters the funk and redefines the jack in Jackathon.
