Jackathon or Heidi Presents Jackathon Jams represents the independent music platform based in Berlin and launched in 2011 by Heidi.

Heidi Van Den Amstel aka Heidi is a Canadian Techno/House DJ and producer born in Windsor, Ontario, now based in London, UK.

Heidi has worked hard over the past decade to make her mark on the new house and techno music generation. You only have to visit her worldwide brand of Jackathon parties or listen to her BBC Radio 1 show to experience her passion for music and fiery nature.

Her Jackathon parties were inspired by her youthful endeavors into house and techno music. Heidi heard its calls across the water growing up in Windsor, Ontario Canada, just across the border from Detroit. Relocating to London in 2000, she picked up her craft and deep expertise behind the counter first at Koobla Records, and in 2003 Heidi was part of the team that opened up Londonís foremost record shop, Phonica.

In 2009 she started the Jackathon events at various nightspots across the globe. Both platforms allow her to invite her peers and compadres such as Richie Hawtin, Soul Clap, Solomun, Maceo Plex, Nicolas Jaar and Derrick Carter to share stories and special musical moments with her.

In 2011 a compilation album of the same name was released on her original home label, Get Physical, and a sublabel called Heidi Presents Jackathon Jams was born from its success. The first EP features an all female cast including Maya Jane Coles, Miss Kitten and Tini, but the Jackathon is about energy and unleashing some of that magic created on the dancefloor.

Heidi spends her life immersed in music. She lives and breathes the touring lifestyle, whether its 25,000 person crowds in Latin America, or festivals such as Exit ,Global Gathering, Detroit's Movement fest, or the infamous cave of Fabric in London, or Japanís Womb, or holding her own at Jackathon residency strongholds in Ibiza, London, Berlinís Watergate and Manchester; she fits within any destination around the world.

Never afraid to fight for what she wants, for Heidi itís not about right place, right time. She has won through sheer determination and sharing the magic with those she loves at every step.

ďI made the leap of faith into choosing this as a career and putting every last ounce of energy I have into it. I could have flopped on my face but I stuck it out and proved myself to my peers. Every achievement was because I gave 110% of myself, treated everyone with genuine kindness, and sacrificed things in my life that people take for granted.Ē
