Best mates Jack and Jake have been making music as Nukey since 2019. In 2020, they won a Be Yourself Music remix comp, and in the "Spinnin' Records World's Biggest Demo Drop", they had Tiesto select their track "Antidote" as his winner. Since those early Future House beginnings, their sound has expanded into Tech House and House. Earlier this year, they sent Kevin McKay a rough sketch of "Gospel Jam" and asked him to get involved. "I loved the raw energy of this track from the off," he explains. "Some of my favourite house records stem from bluesy samples like this - St. Germain's 'Walk So Lonely' springs to mind as an obvious example, so I couldn't wait to get stuck in". Between them, they have turned a slice of obscure gospel swing into a barnstorming house jam that we can imagine hearing in the sets of Claptone and Sam Divine.
