  CONDENSEDAUDIOJACKBIOGRAPHY The story of Audiojack began in Ibiza in 2002; a chance meeting broughtabout through a mutual love of music and DJing, the friendship of James Rialand Richard Burkinshaw began. Three years later they settled in Leeds and itwas at this point they decided to take to the studio together, in an attempt toturn their long-term passion for DJing and love of vinyl into something moreperpetual.In 2005, after an intensive year of studio time, cheap cider and angryneighbors the duo produced their first demo, a six track mash up, which wassent to around 20 labels yielding no reward, although a random meeting at alocal record shop was about to change all that, ‘Robot’ was picked up by thelabel Leftroom.Robot was released in 2006 and went on to become one of the most talkedabout and supported tracks of the year, notching up five figure sales andgaining huge support across the board from Sasha to Richie Hawtin, fromPete Tong to Annie Nightingale.The duo then found themselves in serious demand, going from having no gigsto a practically full tour diary overnight with offers from many of the labelswho’d been reluctant to check out their demos just a few months earlier.Soon, Ralph Lawson and his 20:20 Vision label came calling. The infamousLeeds label’s office was just a short walk from their home studio, and with thatthey signed a three single and one album deal, the remnants of which are stillin place today as artist and label continue their long-lasting partnership.Legendary Leeds club Back to Basics played a hugely influential part inshaping Audiojack in these early years and when then resident Paul Woolfordoffered them the chance to remix his recent classic ‘Erotic Discourse’ they gotto work, jacking up the srcinal with a more dance floor orientated alternative,which quickly found its way to the top of Beatport’s techno chart.The singles and remixes which followed were a manifestation of their earlyinfluences of house, techno, hip hop, soul and more, resulting in remixes for labels such as Renaissance, Blu-Fin and Great Stuff, including a remix for Mike Monday whic began to show Audiojack to be somewhat techno hitmakers, and have their third production to top Beatport’s techno charts.Further remixes for the legendary Underworld and Lawson’s band 2020Soundsystem showed their versatility. Their varying styles made it hard for themedia and music fans to categorise them; one magazine even reviewed thesame track in 4 different genres!In 2009, Radio was released on 20:20 Vision to critical acclaim. Clashmagazine wrote anyone with appreciation for house or techno in any of their varied forms will dig this, impressive”. IDJ Magazine commented Audiojack  represent all that’s great about 20:20 Vision, house music and the UK dancefloors right now. Tracks such as Schizophonic, Jack the Keys and title track Radio picked upbig support with the likes of Pete Tong playing repeatedly on Radio 1.In December of 2009, the duo make their debut on Get Physical’s digital sister label with their ‘Kicks for Kicks’ EP, which found favour amongst the likes of Sven Vath, Solomon and DJ T. As their own sound developed, becoming deeper and housier the duo beganto distance themselves from the tired and generic tech house and technosound. Their Shakedown / Motion Sickness EP on 20:20 Vision picked up bigsupport and was a mainstay in download charts throughout the summer,becoming 20:20’s best selling EP of the year.In 2011, it was their ‘Get Serious’ EP on 2020 Vision which stole the show. Anon mover in Beatport’s deep house top 10 for several months, ‘Polka DotDress’ was no average B side, this too remained a chart mainstay for severalmonthsTen years on since that chance meeting in Ibiza and Audiojack are moreinspired, confident and excited about the future of music than they’ve ever been.To date, Audiojack have toured in over 50 countries taking in some of theworld’s best venues and events: Space (Ibiza), Fabric (London), Watergate(Berlin), D-Edge (Sao Paulo), Ageha (Tokyo), Circo Loco (Sydney), Avalon(Los Angeles), Sankey’s (Manchester), Fabrik (Madrid), Zouk (Singapore)Basics (Leeds) to name just a few. 
