ONE of the UK's fastest-rising DJ talents will be leading the line-up at Electric Soup later this month.

Fresh from his debut at legendary London nightclub Fabric, Jacky is set to visit Workington on Saturday June 30.

Although he cut his teeth in the North East, Jacky’s love for music started young when he was growing up in East Africa.

Emerging on the scene with Barcelona-based institution Elrow in 2015 with the release of hit EP Diskotek, it made a serious impact on dancefloors throughout the underground and went on to reach number eight in the Beatport chart.

With his own event series, Jacky & Friends, they have sold out several of Europe’s key venues, including Sankeys MCR, Fire London, Digital Newcastle, Mint Warehouse Leeds, Eden Ibiza’s back room and Benimusa Park, where they invaded the Treehouse stage during the legendary Zoo Project events for a string of dates throughout the summer 2017 season.

Since signing his first record in the summer of 2014, Jacky has gone on to receive widespread praise from some of the industry’s biggest artists, including Steve Lawler, Skream, Jamie Jones, Marco Carola, Richy Ahmed, Nick Curly, and Santé.

He has also secured an Ibiza residency at the now infamous Defected parties, taking over Eden every weekend throughout the summer, and will be heading back there shortly after his Workington appearance.

Support from Emerge DJs Drewy, Braqs and Jonny Donat, plus residents James Gibson and Jake Middleton.

The event on Saturday June 30 starts at 10pm, and tickets are available in advance via or can be bought on the door.
