Posted by in News, Press english, Press/Reviews

You & Me, Jacob Korn’s 2012 debut album for Dresden’s Uncanny Valley, was a swirling, often serrated and always challenging take on deep house that succeeded through experimentation rather than falling back on the genre’s usual tropes. This wonderful EP, the first of two by Korn that the label will release in the coming months, picks up where that record left off, both in terms of its varied musical atmosphere and in its precipitously high quality.Its joyous guitar sample cavorting ove claps, elasticated drums and fluttering vocal fragments, “Eisladen” makes…read more

Juno Plus review of „EP-1“

Posted by in Press english, Press/Reviews

Between 2009 and 2012, Jacob Korn could do no wrong. The Dresden native started his recording career in fine style, delivering a 12” for Running Back – “I Like The Sun” – that blurred the boundaries between hypnotic deep house and hazy Balearica.

Claiming recent fame for the ingenuity and consistency of his live shows, Jacob Korn has released the first of 2 EP’s on Uncanny Valley with a freshly established status as a house and techno heavyweight.

Preview the first of two planned releases from the producer on the Dresden label. Uncanny Valley is definitely a label that seems to take full advantage of the proliferation of artists and producers that make up it’s Dresden-centric community, with a release schedule that can best be described as brisk – they just issued a third record from Break SL for example.

„Uncanny Valley 20“ Review on „Juno Plus“ Collaboration, particularly within local scenes, has always been one of the more positive aspects of electronic music. Since the evolution of house and techno in Chicago and Detroit respectively, producers, musicians, label owners and party promoters have always joined forces to work together, put on events and showcase their sounds to the world. Chicago may not be the best example given the infamously cut-throat nature of the early house scene (feuds sparked in the early 1980s still rumble on to this day, in…read more

Number 23, jacob korn, you & me, uncanny valley (listen/buy it) uncanny valley have many a talent in their extended family, but the first to breakthrough with an album all his own was jacob korn. well, it was sort of all his own, because every track also featured a high profile guest either on vocals or beat work duty. the result are a prickly deep house album that sounds thoroughly, arrestingly european and industrial instead of exhaustingly african and soulful like many of its peers. http://www.teshno.com/2012/12/albums-of-the-year-2012.html Related articles Podcast for „Trace A Line“ (jacobkorn.de)
