When 28-year-old Scottish DJ Jackmaster was a kid, his older sister gave him a Daft Punk album that literally changed his life. He became obsessed with dance music, starting collecting mixtapes and began working at a record store in Glasgow. Jackmaster (born Jack Revill), went on to form a handful of labels and DJ around the globe. After playing Miami's Winter Music Conference, he toured the U.S. in May and offered to document a night in his life for RS Dance — a wacky evening in L.A. that involved a haircut, a fancy shave and the cops shutting down the party:

"A can of hair mousse exploded in my bag on the way to L.A, so here’s me washing all my other products in the sink. Yeah, I know my hair looks terrible in this picture, but we’ll get to that later."
