Spring is a time to revitalise, to re-fresh.
As the old saying goes: out with the old and in with the new. Clearly, it's a maxim Jakwob has taken to his heart, with the London producer tying up a deal with a new label.
Yep, he's leaping aboard the good ship Digital Soundboy. A collective co-run by Shy FX, the label is the perfect home for the London producer's lairy-yet-affectionate take on bass culture.
Sayeth Jakwob: "I'm really excited to be working with Shy and the whole crew over at Digital Soundboy. I've always really admired what they stand for and to get the chance to be a part of that is a real honour. I look forward to us having lots of success together."
New single 'Somebody New' is the start of this relationship. Out on Monday (April 7th) it's a moody cut which peppers Jakwob's big room approach with some serious bass murk. It's not all darkness, though, with Tiffani Juno's vocal adding soulful pop sass.
Kindred steps in on remix duties, finding beauty in the gloom and melancholy in the light.
