Jakwob

Jakwob began making music aged 10 as a multi-instrumentalist and has been involved in many groups from his teenage years onwards, beginning in jazz but moving on to death metal and folk.[1] His style is notable for its transcending of genres and its relative 'accessibility' given the Dubstep genre.[2] Both his original work and remixes combine elements of dub step, electro, ghetto-tech and break-beat. This eclecticism also manifests itself in Jakwob’s DJ sets, which take in dub, hip-hop, drum and bass, dub step and beyond.[3] In 2009, he shot to fame after appreciation in the blog world for his bootleg of Ellie Goulding's 'Starry Eyed'[4]. In November 2009, he was given his first airplay on national radio when his remix of Ellie Goulding's "Under the Sheets" was played on BBC Radio 1 as Zane Lowe's 'hottest record in the world'.[5] Jakwob has since continued to produce remixes of tracks, including those by Matisyahu, Katie Melua, Little Boots, Empire of the Sun, Frankmusik, Lily Allen, Coco Sumner, and Temper Trap& M.I.A.

Jakwob released his debut single Here With Me on his own label, Boom Ting Recordings on September 13th, 2010[6]. On November 8th, 2010 Jakwob signed to Mercury Records and is due to release his first album in 2011.
