Exclusive Jakwob Mix for Dazed

Student by day, Jakwob by night. We talk to the dubstep newcomer about his hectic year, his new album and his exclusive mix for Dazed Kudos is definitely due for James Jacob AKA ‘Jakwob’. At 20 years old and a third-year student at De Montfort University in Leicester, he has already been championed by the likes of Annie Mac and Zane Lowe. For what? It might just be the two (yes, two) remixes he’s done for Ellie Goulding, indisputably having a catalytic effect on her newfound success. It might also be the remixes he’s done for Empire Of The Sun, Lily Allen and Yeah Yeah Yeahs… and Temper Trap. Kid Sister too. Most recently, he did a remix for Audio Bullys (it's awfully hard to keep track without a press release to hand). Now however, he’s focusing his dubstep / 2-step / experimental sound on his debut album. There is a reluctance to place him under the ever-growing umbrella of ‘dubstep’ and the like though. With the command of different instruments, Jacob played in a bunch of bands growing up, the genres of which ranged from Metal to Jazz. Before you go Google the hell out of him, take a listen to the mix he’s very kindly done for us below. Actually, feel free to Google whilst listening, we wouldn’t blame you. [+here]
