Why: If you aren’t British or haven’t been following this site since the beginning then you probably don’t know Just Jack. You don’t remember his awesome Brit dance-pop jams like “Starz in Their Eyes” or “Doctor, Doctor.”Â Ever since I missed his setÂ earlier this year I’ve been wondering what he is up to. A bit of research turned up a whole EP of mellowed out and mature off-kilter tracks. “Rims of Doom” is the kind of “aging artist railing against the youth movements” track that would normally make me cringe but Jack pulls it off nicely. And there are horns. Its a departure from the songs that he is known for but a nice reminder that he is still out there making music. We’re here when you come back, Jack.

I first discovered Just Jack when I stumbled across his new video for “Doctor Doctor” and was immediately smitten by both the song and his gap-toothed charisma. Setting fourth to uncover more gems by this 34 year old Brit I bought his 2006 album Overtones and was slapped in the face by the brilliance of “Starz In Their Eyes” (not to mention the rest of the album). Damn Jack, why you so fresh? And can you hurry the F up on your new album, All Night Cinema, cause, like, I don’t have “all night” here. Whether I knew it or not, I have been waiting too long.
