Release Date: 27th November 2020
Jack Workforce welcomes his first guest producers to the Must Make imprint, handing over three cuts from his Late Night Soundtrack project to three stellar remixers; Break, Tim Reaper and Halogenix. All three have delivered absolutely elite-level reimaginations of the Workforce cuts, spanning and encapsulating the entirety of the Drum & Bass genre; from Break’s straight-up reworking of ‘Overnight Express’, twisting the DNA of the original cut and crunching up the tones of SP:MC, to the legendary Tim Reaper’s jungle reworking of ‘Two Words’, which absolutely turns the original on it’s head, and finally to the detailed, brutal but emotive take on ‘Your Loss’, delivered by Halogenix.

Workforce by name and Workforce by nature.
2019 saw Jack Stevens (one half of iconic duo SpectraSoul) set up his new moniker, establish his new label; Must Make Music, and release two four-track EP’s on that label as well as making time for a cameo on d.Bridge’s renowned Exit Records with the six-track ‘Your Moves’ EP.
To kick off 2020, Workforce returns to his own Must Make Music imprint to present the third and final volume of the Late Night Soundtrack series. In true Workforce style, the four tracks traverse the 170bpm template; showcasing both his versatility and the breadth of influences that inform his work: from the sultry blues of ‘Cheap Love’ which features the ever-impressive and ever-evolving vocal talents of DRS to the stripped-back simplicity of ‘Your Loss’ through to the ethereal yet simplistic motifs of ‘In The Throes.’
Late Night Soundtrack Vol.3 confidently shows all sides of Workforce's repertoire. Music that is functional sits right next to music that is led by emotion.
When listening to the complete Late Night Soundtrack series it's clear to see that Workforce has achieved what he wanted to; he has set out his stall in terms of his aesthetic, intention and vision. There will be more to look forward to from Stevens' burgeoning new alias in 2020.

The new solo project from Jack Stevens AKA one half of SpectraSoul. Under the guise of Workforce, Jack presents 'Late Night Soundtrack Vol. 1' on his new label, Must Make Music.
"Last year I had a chance to work on some music on my own for a bit. I bought some new synths, learnt some new techniques and had some fun writing some new music. This is the first of three EP's that I plan to release in 2019 under my solo Workforce alias, and the banner of 'Late Night Soundtrack’ - a title which hints at the loose concept behind the music; drum & bass for dark rooms, big sound systems, and late nights. I just wanted to challenge myself again, not knowing if I could do it. I wanted to back myself and see where the road might lead."
