VHS Head is a mysterious Blackpool, UK native producer signed to Skam Records.

Rumors are flying around that VHS Head is a secret moniker of the amazing Jackson & His Computer Band. I had the pleasure of checking out Jackson’s DJ set as he opened for Justice this last week in NYC at Webster Hall. Not what I was expecting from Jackson, but it was a DJ set full of electro blog-haus bangers even Benny Benassi’s “Satisfaction” which got all the br0s dancing/moshing. It’s too bad none of audience knew who he was to really appreciate his genius. Justice essentially took Jackson’s production style of micro-sampling/cut and paste, collage style. Just take a listen to Jackson & His Computer Band’s song “Hard Tits” and tell me that track did not heavily influence Justice’s “Valentine”.

Anyway back to VHS Head – at first listen it does sound very similar to Jackson’s work but I feel like it is would be a step backwards for Jackson to produce tracks such as these. Either way I am a big fan of this chopped up beats and samples production style. These tracks even remind me a little of Venetian Snares as well.
