Rusko, eat your heart out and move over. Fun-step has a new leader.

At just 20, the fresh-faced Jakwob, or James Jacob to his mum, has already featured on the flips of singles from Toxic Avenger, Kid Sister and The Temper Trap, as well as smashing the blogs with his own bass-injected bootlegs of Yeah Yeah Yeahs “Heads Will Roll” and Ellie Goulding’s “Starry Eyed”.

I have three of his fantastic tunes to share today. First, his remix of Penguin Prison. This one is kept afloat by a low-end wobble teetering over bits of the original re-shaped into a reggae skank.

Penguin Prison – Animal Animal (Jakwob Remix)

Second, a more recent one. His take on Dan Le Sac & Scroobius Pip’s latest single “Get Better” (which, by the way, is brilliant) is a less-wonky affair, trading in LFOs for electric guitar swells, orchestral strings and… more offbeat skanking.

And finally, a house tempo number. Not much to say about this, except that it’s very upbeat and bouncy!

Frankmusik – Confusion Girl (Jakwob Remix)

By the way, since there’s a fifth Friday this month, I’m gonna see if I can sort out a guest post, so stay tuned!

AY! x
