Having only just turned 20, James Jacob AKA ‘Jakwob’ has seen his nascent career take off in the last few months. First coming to acclaim via some major appreciation in the blog world for his bootleg of Ellie Goulding’s ‘Starry Eyed’ and endorsing such support with his remix of ‘Under The Sheets’ he’s since gone on to remix the likes of Empire Of The Sun, Temper Trap and Penguin Prison and has remixes forthcoming for the likes of Audio Bullies, dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip and I Blame Coco.

Hailing from the Midlands Jakwob has been involved in music from the age of 10 and is a multi-instrumentalist having been involved in many groups starting in jazz moving on to play death metal and folk (!) This goes a long way to explaining his style which transcends genres combining elements of dubstep, trance, ghetto-tech and breakbeat (to name a few)…

This eclecticism also manifests itself in Jakwob’s DJ sets which take in dub, hip hop, drum and bass, dubstep and anything else that he fancies making fit.

Currently working on a debut release and very much in demand as a producer of the moment, watch this space…
