Band of the Week Jacob London
posted by March 28 at 15:16 PMon
Dave Pezzner, a nice guy who puts the “Jacob” in Jacob London, was not a session player on key electric-period Miles Davis recordings, nor did he cut his chops as a touring keyboardist with Katrina and the Waves. Bob Hansen, a graphic designer who prefers Amsterdam over London, didn’t learn studio technology as a tape operator on Michael Jackson’s 1982 smash “Thriller,” and he spent no time in the music industry as an A&R representative for Columbia Records. Together they make Jacob London.
After 13 years of countless live performances, world tours, several band name changes, idealistic decisions to “stop producing (insert techno subgenre here)”, and powerful releases/remixes on Om Records (San Francisco), Stay True (Paris), Doubledown (San Diego), U-Freqs (UK), and Derrick Carter & Luke Solomonís enormously popular Classic Records (UK) imprint, “Jacob London” has become a household name for house and techno dj’s all over the planet.
The pair perform this Friday at Oseao Gallery as part of the Mark Farina after party. They play Malorca and Belgium on April 7th & 8th before returning home for April 14th’s Krakt at Re-Bar with [a]ppendics.shuffle.
