RC Podcast: Jakebob 23/05/2018
This weeks podcast installment comes from the Hereford based Grime DJ & producer, Jakebob.
Following on from last weeks podcast installment courtesy of Tyler B, our next mix comes from a place you wouldn’t exactly associate with Grime, Leominster in Hereford. As regional grime artists and DJs have swept the UK, it would be fair to say that there is now new and up and coming talent in every part of the country unlike the traditional cities associated with the Grime scene in the past. Keep posted for Jakebob’s forthcoming EP as well as a monthly show with Chameleon Audio on Mode FM.
When can we expect your next EP and who will be featuring on it?
The next booked in EP is myself & Lingerz Joint EP which is coming out on Sydonia Recordings in July 2018. Also watch out for a load of lethal combos over the next year.
How did you get involved in the whole scene and who have you enjoyed working (so far) the most?
I’ve always had a passion for Grime and 140 based music. I started MC’ing at the age 16, then around 2016 I linked up with Mojoe + Chemist RNS (Chameleon Audio) in their studio in walsall, and ever since then I’ve always worked closely with them. Rakjay as an MC though is my favourite to work with, the guys a don.
Where can we catch Jakebob on radio/ weekly shows etc?
Chameleon Audio have very recently been honoured with a show on Mode FM, 3-5 on the 3rd Saturday of every month, commencing in July! Other than that i’ll be dotting about on guest mix duties etc.
What’s your favourite DJ’in/ producing kit of all time?
Fruity loops 12 and my lappy and I’m comfy!
