Anyone who's been to a Housekeeping party will know they take fun seriously! Having already taken over Camden's Koko and into their fourth year residency at Ibiza's Blue Marlin they also headlined the beloved Bollywood tent at this year's Bestival.
We got to chat with Jacobi AGC before he flies off to play Blue Marlin this Saturday to find out what Housekeeping has coming up, check their influences and show off his favourite tracks of the summer.

Tell us how the year's been so far, what have you been up to?

This year everything's grown so quickly, we couldn't be happier! We started off in Tulum playing during BPM Festival before returning to London for our first Koko show of the year. Since then, we've played two Koko shows as well as in Berlin, before the season started in Ibiza. Our residency at Blue Marlin has gone from strength to strength! We now have a Housekeeping billboard on the island and recently had live streaming via Sonica Radio. The night has become packed and with such a great energy. We also love playing during sunset for a true day party.

Any parties you've been to or DJ's you've seen blown you away?

The private villa parties are always a great vibe here on the island. One in particular was when Dixon played for 24 hours.

Tell us about one party you'll never forget.

The one party I will never forget was earlier this year in Mexico called Day Zero. It was the most amazing party in the middle of the jungle with natural pools where people could swim, caves in the side of the mountain where you could escape the heat and relax, not to mention thousands of people dancing between the trees to the sound of Damian Lazarus and Acid Pauli.

Which parties or artists influenced Housekeeping the most?

We draw our inspiration from years of experience and love of the music industry. Each of us have very different musical backgrounds from Funk & Soul, to drum & Bass which influence what we play. When it comes to parties influencing what we do, Pacha in Ibiza is probably the closest thing to what we create at KOKO, but the influence is taken from all over the world.

What can we expect from Housekeeping in the future?

Housekeeping has a lot coming up in the next 12 months. We're currently launching the record label as well as planning some much bigger shows for 2017. We are looking forward to playing Bestival this weekend and then a busy schedule leading up to Christmas. We are returning to Koko, heading to Amsterdam for ADE to put on our Crane party (which Mixmag called the best after party of 2015), and putting something exciting together in Miami, Brazil and back to Tulum in Jan.
