As a born perfectionist and skilled artist, a remarkable and undeniably swift revolution marks the past few years of UK’s Jordan Suckley. Going from one of the scene’s most promising newcomers and a roar in the underground to playing the world’s high-end clubs, events and festivals, launching his very own Damaged Records and hitting the top of the charts with originals and remixes, is a mere reflection of the hard work this guy’s put into it. Leaving the rising star status behind, following his instinct and creating a path of his own, sees Jordan Suckley set a new standard for the next generation in electronic dance music.
Looking back on the high praise and ‘one-to-watch’ titles given to him by industry peers like Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk and Paul Oakenfold, Jordan Suckley has become a name that stands on its own merits. Years after holding residency on the world’s most revered dance music station – BBC Radio 1 – and releasing his studio work on labels like Armada Music, Garuda, Spinnin’ Records, Perfecto Fluoro, Vandit, Black Hole and Ultra, he’s established his own outlet. Launched in February 2014, Damaged Records made it to Beatport’s Top 15 of best-selling trance labels within its first year, clocking up no less than twelve Top 10 hits and various number one’s. With sold-out Damaged events taking place in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Belfast, Toronto, Milan and even Down Under, it’s clear that Suckley’s vision is shared and welcomed by music lovers well beyond his home territory.
Though Damaged Records leaves plenty of room to support upcoming talent, it’s also home to Jordan’s studio work. The label’s released Suckley’s successful ‘Contaminated’, ‘Aztec Curse’, ‘Droid’ and ‘Medic’. The latest highlight includes his monster remix for Tiësto classic ‘Suburban Train’, causing a storm in the sets and shows of every major trance act. Topping Beatport’s Trance and entering the main chart in one go lets you know why Jordan has been given the task to remix the originals of Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Markus Schulz, Gareth Emery, Aly & Fila, Simon Patterson and John O’Callaghan.
Ensuing gigs at Tomorrow World, EDC Las Vegas, A State of Trance, Future Sound of Egypt, Global Gathering UK, Cream Ibiza and tours in Australia, Asia and Argentina, the next few months await him with plenty more headliner slots. Each promoter knows that when booking him, they’re in for an exceptional experience – incorporating a showcase of his scratching skills. As Damaged Records continues to grow, his sounds spread and name echoes across the scene. Resting on his laurels is no way to go for Jordan Suckley though, so you’d best prepare to be blown away – again and again.
