JX ‘Son of A Gun’: A Deeper Dive into the 90s Dance Classic – Friday Flashback

EP artwork for JX’s 'Son of A Gun'

In this week’s Friday Flashback, we delve into the archives to spotlight the classic 90s dance anthem, ‘Son of A Gun’ by JX.

Originally released on Hooj Choons in 1994 (a vinyl that many of you reading this surely have!), the track emerged as a cornerstone in the old-school dance music landscape.

The collaboration between Red Jerry and JX resulted in a remix that seamlessly fused techno and house elements and has always been the ‘go-to’ edit – one which regularly earns its place in DJ sets even today.

JX, a British electronic music producer, also garnered recognition for hugely influential tracks, namely ‘There’s Nothing I Won’t Do’, which reached No.4 in the UK charts two years later.

Son Of A Gun is still accessible on various platforms such as Discogs, Bandcamp, Beatport, and Traxsource, allowing a new generation to experience its timeless appeal.

For all you music geeks out there, the original track contains samples from the 1976 song “Touch and Go” by 70s disco band ‘Ecstasy, Passion & Pain’.

As we revisit this 90s dance/old-school classic together, let’s enjoy the beats that defined an era. Make sure you turn it up!
