Jakwob: The Prize
Buy! - (self-released)
Emerging over the past couple years as a hot remixer and blossoming producer, UK's James Jacob (aka Jakwob) is offering us this mixtape to whet appetites for his forthcoming debut album and it's a nice introduction into his vibrant, bass-heavy, post-dubstep/2-step-leaning style. Reminiscent at times of SBTRKT's recent breakthrough debut album, The Prize finds Jakwob collaborating with diverse vocalists for some stellar, cutting-edge, crossover-ready electronic/pop singles.
