Matt ‘Jam’ Lamont’s Crack Mix. Having initially found notoriety in the UKG explosion of the mid to late 90s, Matt ‘Jam’ Lamont‘s production work and DJing have seen him stay remarkably true to the UK sound. His mix for Crack keeps the rolling feel of a radio mix and features a number of instantly identifiable moments from the two-step, garage and the more uptempo strains of the house spectrum.
