Biography

Jackson & His Computer Band is the musical alias of Jackson Fourgeaud, the acclaimed French producer and DJ. A Parisian to the core, Jackson currently resides in Berlin where he is working on his second album and preparing an eye-opening live show. Like his adventurous music, Jackson is a bundle of energy and ideas whose thirst for provocation and stimulation has led to him being hailed as one of the wildest talents of his generation.

Now 28, he has spent more than a decade at dance music’s cutting edge. A rough diamond in the Warp label’s glittering crown, Jackson made serious waves when he released his debut album, ‘Smash’, in 2005 and toured the world with his first live show. Described by its composer as “a style orgy, a psychedelic celebration of conflict”, ‘Smash’ soon became a word-of-mouth classic. Its follow-up is shaping up handsomely, too. Many know Jackson as the producer behind ‘Utopia’, the shimmering six-minute après-rave odyssey that was used to great effect in an O2 commercial in the UK.
Jackson is also in great demand as a DJ. His rugged, romantic approach to crowd-pleasing guarantees surprises. A techno tease and a new-wave futurist, anything goes in Jackson’s sets – and frequently does. As a remixer, Jackson receives many requests from acts keen to hear his unique take on their sound. Most recently, Justice personally asked Jackson for a remix. He delivered the astonishing ‘Do The JAHCB’, a 12-minute megamix of Justice’s debut album which set the blogs ablaze and rather flattered his Parisian playmates.
