“We’re excited to announce the first wave of acts set to play at the Numbers LDN Warehouse party this December. Numbers residents Jackmaster & Spencer will be joined by Detroit sounds via New York’s Mike Servito, Numbers artists Kornél Kovács, Denis Sulta & Sparky, plus recently added Koreless” – Numbers

Here’s a look at some of the artists on offer. All of these guys will be bringing the heat to Studio Spaces in December with The Hydra and LWE providing the extra bells and whistles.

You never know exactly what you’re going to hear with Jackmaster, and it’s his hedonistic party attitude that keeps him in touch with the floor. The element of surprise is crucial to his sets: he spends his time unearthing forgotten Disco tracks to straight-up house and techno sets. The Numbers co-founder has more options up his sleeve than just about any other DJ out there – and a rare knack for connecting seemingly disparate style.

Mike Servito blends a fusion of acid tracks, bass in your face, dirty bleeps, deep cuts & party bombs all to make you jack! The Detroit born DJ now lives in NYC where he holds down a residency at The Bunker New York. In the future, this special generation of deep midwest mixers will be remembered and revered as the wizards they are, long after the trendy players have lost their luster. Check out his radio show for NY’s finest Beat In Space.

Kornél Kovács have released the catchiest Numbers release of the year with Pantalon. The vocal hook makes it a sing-a-long and the beat makes it a gypsy styled toe twerker… the ideal qwerky dancefloor weapon. Aside from Numbers Kornél Kovács is one third of the formidable Stockholm label Studio Barnhaud, alongside buddy and co-founder Axel Boman. The labels output since their formation in 2006 has been onpoint, and they always bring the vibe.

Needing no queues for Numbers fans, Spencer has been part of the crew since day dot, having been one of the original label founders. Representing the best of UK talent he has spearheaded Numbers to the top with over a decade of party organising and releasing records. From early beginnings in working in Glasgow’s world-renowned record store Rubadub, he has also co-hosted a radio show with Detroit techno legend Claude Young, and worked for Warp Records. Having crafted his Dj skill with school friends Jackmaster, we’ll never forget his amazing performance at Bestival 2014 on the Redbull stage. Spencer might be a matured selector behind the decks, but he’s also a backroom pioneer, who keeps the cogs of the label rolling.

Denis Sulta accent has been quick and shows a nurtured and deep understanding of electronic music past present and future. This is highlighted by his recent promo mix for fabric.

Sparky (live) will bring with him years worth of crate digging, vinyl collecting and crowd rinsing. AKA and Luma Sparky has been a stalwart in the Glasgow scene since the 90s smiley days. He’s released on Numbers, Optimo & Espcacio to name a few. A live set from him at Studio Spaces will be something else!
