The Basement is a community of over 100,000 people, all with different dreams, jobs, talents and aspirations. As a community, it has always been important for us to support each other and bring the talents of each other forward. The Basement Mix series, aims to provide a showcase. First in our series is Jacob Harrison who has been in The Basement since 2016.

His own music discovery lead him to Disco House, giving him an ear for tracks with raw soulful vocals over classic house drums. With a modest start he began mixing these tracks on second hand equipment at parties in his university city of Portsmouth.
Later forming a collective of artists with the same vision named ‘SubSet’. While still on the rise he aims to make this genre more prominent in the UK scene, inciting a revival of Disco.
