DJ/Liveset-related Biography (english)
Jacob Korn from Dresden, Germany was born in the early 80’s. His sound is influenced by Kraftwerk and the sound of 90’s techno and house music. He has been producing electronic music of different flavours for what seems like an eternity. Early on in his career he combined Hip Hop and Techno with elements of Jazz and weird electronics under the Granufunk moniker.
Once he turned his attention to more classical but versatile house and techno stylings he chose to go by his given name. Jacob Korn continually experiments in new recordingstyles and production techniques, while developing his own music tools for cross media arts and interactive performances.
