INFO > Jackpot was set up out of necessity in 1995 when prog house act Blue Amazon failed to attract any label attention. The imprint was founded by Seven Webster, whose 7PM Management company helped guide the careers of Sasha, John Digweed, BT, StoneBridge, and Shiva. Jackpot’s first release was Blue Amazon’s “Four Seasons” 12 inch (WIN 001); the label would quickly become home to the cream of progressive house talent, including: Danny Howells, Rob Green, Richard Dekkard, Atlas, Amethyst, Tenth Chapter, and Danny Campbell. Additionally, the label acquired the back catalog of William Orbit’s defunct Guerilla Records in 1997 and reissued many of that imprint’s finest moments with new mixes from the Jackpot roster. After Blue Amazon’s departure, and unable to sustain success, Jackpot unfortunately folded in 2000.
