Dubstep DJ/Producer Jakwob To Release New Single in June
This is BEAUTIFUL! Check out this stunning new track from British Dubstep DJ/producer Jakwob (AKA James Jacob). His new single, "Right Beside You" is due out June 20th and features rap from Smiler and lovely vocals from an artist named Nicky. Per the release:
"Jakwob's inheriant eclecticism trancednds genres, combining elements of dubstep, electro, ghetto-tech and breakbeat (to name a few). 'Right Beside You' is a beautiful and intreiguing mix of these influences."
I first became aware of Jakwob by way of his fantastic dubstep remixes, putting his unique spin on tracks by some of my favorite UK artists, including Ellie Goulding, Katie Melua, Frankmusik and Jessie J. Jakwob is known for his fantastic DJ sets and is always a hit on the festival circuit. Last year Jakwob played a string of European festivals including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Bestival, Pukkelpop (Belgium) and a whole slew of others. What's more, Jakwob recently completed his second U.S. tour, which included dates at SXSW and Beyond Wonderland. Can't wait to hear more! In the meantime, stream his fanstastic new single, "Right Beside You" below. The single will be released in the UK on June 20th.
