Artist Spotlight: Stephan Jacobs

Stephan Jacobs is tearing up the West Coast underground with a crunk-yet-cultured aesthetic only a burner in LA could conjure. His diverse sets use beats ranging from Dubstep to Electro to Minimal House and twisted Glitch-Hop; he is a go-to DJ for The Do Lab and dance party producers from California to Tel Aviv. His production is off the chain as well, delivering hard-hitting bangers that span genres and break necks.

He has a knack for inciting crowds with his eclectic music, whether he is performing at major music festivals, dark underground events in LA or the hottest club in Hollywood. A prolific producer who cannot stop creating, Jacobs is also half of Kether with Ruff Hauser, a highly regarded live electronics duo making futuristic sounds. Stephan has honed his skills and now stands poised to bring new waves of brain-smashing beats to the hungry masses.

Check out tracks from his latest, the In The Vortex EP and see for yourself..
