Jacob Phono

Danish, Berlin-based producer, singer and DJ Jacob Phono was
growing up in a small town in northern Denmark with not much
happening around him, he put much focus into music.
At the age of thirteen he started playing drums and through his
teens he played live music in many different bands and
experimented on different instruments. He later studied sound
engineering, leading to a career within music, film and theater.
Dj’ing his way through the Berlin scene, he has been
collaborating with numerous clubs and artists and hosted various
parties – always with a profound love for the dancefloor.
Jacob has also played at infamous clubs such as Berghain/
Panoramabar, Club Der Visionaere, Tresor, Sisyphos and is a
resident DJ at Katerholzig. His DJ style is inspired by the morningafter
club atmosphere, and his sound plays around with noisy
ambient soundscapes, transcendental disco-techno, edgy
dynamics and intelligent sexy “four on the floor”- grooves.
Over the last few years, as a result of his Berlin recidency, he has
been working with artists such as Subb-an, Tom Clark, Jens Bond
and Miro Pajic. With releases on several european labels like
Cocoon Recordings, Highgrade Records, Upon You, Cityfox,
Plastic City, Fantastic Friends, Audiomatique, and American
labels like Thoughtless Music and Nuwax, he is surely making his
mark as a producer. His productions differ a lot as he likes to
experiment, expressing different feelings and genres within a
deep, groovy bass line. He has always been inspired by The
Doors, old Disco in the style of Giorgio Moroder and Cerrone, 80s
melancholic synth pop music like Depeche Mode and Sono, as
well as late 90s names like Underworld.
