‘Certified Jackin’ was formed in 2011 with the sole intention of taking the big-bass “jackin’ house” sound that was sweeping the North of England and the Midlands and deliver it to a much wider audience. We did that via a simple YouTube channel, which, slightly unexpectedly, became a massive success, harnessing close to 100,000 subscribers and over 20 million views. The sound we promote was greatly received throughout the United Kingdom, and worldwide.
Over the following years, we helped promote the early careers of artists who featured heavily on our YouTube channel including Hannah Wants, Chris Lorenzo & Billy Kenny amongst others. Our platform did no harm in boosting their profile in the run up to where they stand today on the global music stage. Their meteoric rise through the music scene has, along with other artists, brought underground House music to the forefront of the dance music world, specifically the ‘Jackin’, ‘Bass House’ and ‘Tech House’ sub-genres.
Our early sound has naturally changed over the course of time, but our values remain the same. We aim to deliver high energy, feel good, bass heavy house music with a twist, reaching out to a wider audience and to people who may have never heard our sound before. Our debut album ‘Certified Jackin: Underground House Music’ was released in 2014 and broke the Top 10 on the iTunes dance chart.
We regularly host events at Lightbox in London, as well as Manchester, Sheffield (Tank), Rotherham, Maidstone, Dover and Dublin in Ireland.
