Warp are chuffed to announce the signing of Jackson, the hotly-tipped 25-year-old Parisian producer whose extraordinary music has enchanted the electronic world for a few years now.

Best known for 2003’s ‘Utopia’ single and his remix of M83’s ‘Run Into Flowers’, Jackson Fourgeaud is one of the most exciting and original new electronic talents to emerge from France since Daft Punk. He describes his wild, romantic electronic pop music as "antique futurism", a "style orgy" that sounds like nothing you’ve heard before.

Warp releases the eagerly awaited debut album ‘Smash’ by Jackson & His Computer Band this autumn, preceded by a single in the summer. Jackson recorded the album over four years at home and in various studios in Paris. Vocalists on the album include his mother, Paula Moore, a successful singer in the 80s, his young niece, and rap sage Mike Ladd. In the past, Jackson has remixed Air, Dead Combo, Vanessa Paradis, Freeform 5, and Pepe Braddock.

This year, Jackson has DJed at three parties in London and was invited by Luciano to spin at a Cadenza party in Berlin. Jackson also played at the Vasarely Festival on June 4th in Aix en Provence.

He is currently working on a live show to be unveiled later this year.
