O St. Jakob
Jakob grew up with piles of tapes, CDs and vinyl records with music from around the world which his father had dug up over the years. That obviously made an impact and turned Jakob into an ardent digger as well. He dipped his fingers in many virtual and physical crates and catalogues over the years, building a considerable collection of all kinds of stuff – be it ambient classics and novelties, acid and techno jams old and fresh, pumping house, gentle disco etc.
After coming on board of the once prolific XYZ collective, Jakob became an essential member. With his taste and sensibilities he largely contributed to the collective’s label inventory, and brought to life several of XYZ records.
His on/off studio practice remains to be defined. There are only bits he released scattered here and there, mostly he saves them for his live sets.
