Hotly-tipped producer Jakwob is poised to release 'Electrify', the first single from his upcoming debut album. The single is a stunning taster of the eclectic and genre-defying sound which has already won Jakwob much acclaim.
Jakwob has received huge airplay support from the top tastemaker DJ's in the UK such as MistaJam, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac to name a few. Zane Lowe announced 'Electrify' as his hottest record in the world on 7th December and with over 300 radio plays of his debut EP already under his belt , 2012 looks set to be the year Jakwob takes the airplay charts by storm.
'Electrify' perfectly captures his approach to redefining the experimental, dubstep, and electronic scenes, taking strands of each style and twisting them into a new sound that is very much his own.
Hailing from the Midlands, UK, Jakwob is currently putting the finishing touches to his debut album, and is very much in-demand as the producer of the moment having recently remixed Lana Del Rey's 'Video Games'.
Championed as one of Mixmag's top 5 breakout DJ's of last year, he has performed throughout Europe and completed 2 DJ tours of America. He has also been involved with numerous Radio events throughout the year including Mallorca Rocks, Dubstep Symphony and the forthcoming Festive Festival for the BBC.
Jakwob first appeared on tastemaker radars via some major appreciation in the blog world for his bootleg of Ellie Goulding's 'Starry Eyed' (which has now had over 17 million hits on Youtube alone). It was championed by the likes of Annie Mac, MistaJam and Zane Lowe and has gained further support with his remixes of the likes of Kid Sister, Robyn, Empire Of The Sun, Temper Trap, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Penguin Prison, Audio Bullys, Jessie J and Diplo.
