Jacob London is the Stranger’s new Band of the Week, that lucky act culled from the hordes at our Bands Page and instantly catapulted to 168 hours of blog superstardom.

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.

jacob london are great. nice guys, great producers, and they've managed to do it all with a very healthy sense of humor. good to see them get band of the week, and that promo pic is ridiculous.

ah, fond memories of meeting bob & dave for the first time at a rave party in a not-so-legally occupied orchard the promotors had fled from (with all the cash, natch) ...cops were threatening to bring in bulldozers but these dudes were keeping their cool with a giant anthropomorphic toothbrush buddy.
