Jacob Korn's EP1 reviewed by Mavrik

Jacob Korn’s EP1 reviewed by Mavrik

“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. The latest release fronts a familiar 90’s house and techno impression, whilst featuring some novelty sounds that blend together in...
Jacob Korn's EP1 reviewed by Juno Plus

Jacob Korn’s EP1 reviewed by Juno Plus

“It sees him continue to take deep house in different directions, delivering a quartet of tracks that variously doff an imaginary cap to rubbery punk-funk, African highlife records, cosmic disco, new age house and, of course, Chicago jack. It’s a mark of Korn’s versatility and production skills that such eclecticism actually makes sense; there’s nothing...

  “Bei der Katalognummer 20 ist das Dresdner Label Uncanny Valley mittlerweile angekommen. Auf der Jubiläumscompilation gibt es auch einen Leipziger Bezug.
