(TAL093) Jacob Korn


Jacob Korn

On en parlait il y a tout juste un mois pour la sortie de son album You & Me, Jacob Korn refait la une cette semaine avec ce podcast très bien ficelé. Comme la plupart des membres du label Uncanny Valley basé à Dresde, Jacob a découvert la production musicale à travers le hip-hop, le jazz et l’electronica, trois genres de musique assez différents qu’il s’amusera à combiner avec de la techno au début de sa carrière, sous l’alias Granufunk. C’est ensuite en participant à la Red Bull Music Academy de 2007 qu’il décide de se lancer pleinement dans la musique, et plus particulièrement dans la techno et la house qui l’attirent de plus en plus… Il abandonne alors son pseudonyme Granufunk et commence à signer ses releases de son vrai nom, notamment sur les labels Running Back de Gerd Janson et Dolly crée par Steffi. Alors qu’il commence déjà à se faire une réputation, c’est la création d’Uncanny Valley en 2010 qui le propulsera véritablement sur le devant de la scène avec tous ses collègues dresdois, Cuthead, Break SL, C-Beams et d’autres encore… La suite on la connaît, c’est la récente sortie de son premier album qui semble avoir conquis tout le monde et nous aussi.

Le podcast de Jacob Korn est une compilation mixée des principaux titres sortis sur Uncanny Valley, on y retrouve les classiques du label mais aussi quelques unreleased qui ne laissent présager que le meilleur pour le futur… Un mix de grande classe et une parfaite initiation au son dresdois.

We talked about him just a month ago for the release of his You & Me album, Jacob Korn hits the headlines again with this exclusive and very well-executed podcast. Like most members of the Uncanny Valley label based in Dresden, Jacob discovered music production through hip-hop, jazz and IDM, three quite different genres of music that he started combining with more techno vibes early in his career under the alias Granufunk. After participating to the infamous Red Bull Music Academy back in 2007, he decided to get serious into music producing and especially into house and techno which attracted him more and more…He then put aside his Granufunk pseudonym and started releasing records under his own name on labels such as Gerd Janson’s Running Back and Steffi’s Dolly imprint. While his reputation was growing, it is the creation of Uncanny Valley in 2010 that will truly put him in the spotlight with his Dresdener label mates Cuthead, Break SL, C-Beams and others as well… You know the end of the story, it’s the recent release of his debut album which had a unanimous success worldwide.

Jacob Korn’s podcast is a mixed compilation of tracks released on Uncanny Valley, you will find some of the label’s classics as well as some still unreleased gems which suggest only the best regarding Uncanny Valley’s future… So here’s a mix of great style and a perfect introduction to the Dresden house sound.
