Limerick, County Limerick
Jack Ward is a producer hailing from Limerick, Ireland.
The 25 year-old first started making music almost ten years ago playing drums before moving to digital production, shamelessly citing FL Studio as his weapon of choice.
With a sincere love for exuberant chart-topping pop, the openly gay producer has tried to channel his penchant for addictive hooks and saccharine melodies into his own work.
His tracks bear a distinct house signature, influenced by 80’s melodic pop and 90’s/00’s dance tracks, while bringing his own futuristic twist into the mix, with an ear to the latest experiments in contemporary electronic music.
Jack’s enthusiastic approach threads the line between hi and low-brow, in an effort to bring back a campy, queer ecstasy to the dancefloor.
After a debut with Dirtybird in 2015 and an appearance on a Ministry of Sound compilation, he moved towards a more experimental dancefloor sound, most apparent on his self-released 12” Witches Next Door in 2017, that earned praise from like-minded producers like Madteo and Morgan Buckley, as well as The Trilogy Tapes label.
His burning love for pop music is most evident in the 'Tove Styrke Remixes' EP, a bootleg remix collection from the Swedish superstar’s 'Sway' album.
With a track on acclaimed 2020 Patruin charity compilation 'For MASI' and a fresh single out, Jack has more in store for 2021.
