Amanda Hernandez had the opportunity to interview Stephan Jacobs at the 2013 Vans Warped Tour when it stopped at the Pomona Fairplex in Pomona, CA.
Jacobs has established himself as one of the most exciting young producers in the electronic dance music scene. With a tremendous work ethic and an ability to captivate large crowds during his speaker-shaking live shows, his unique blend of filthy basslines, heavy beats and infectious melodies is unmatched.
As one of the original members of the Headtron crew, the prolific producer is constantly creating new music and embracing creative collaborations which allow him to tap into his many musical influences. After putting out several well-received EPs on notable electronic labels like Rottun Recordings, Muti Music and Simplify Recordings, Jacobs created his own, Bass Cartel, for the release of his self-titled debut album. The result is an impressive body of work that bursts with raw energy, epic bass and strong production.
The booming electronic music scene has taken notice as 2012 marked Stephan Jacobs’ busiest touring schedule to date. He was personally selected to perform at a few key dates with Pretty Lights on his sold-out “Illumination” tour, as well as getting a featured spot on the second annual IDentity Festival alongside EDM heavyweights like Nero, Wolfgang Gartner, Excision and Porter Robinson. In the Autumn he celebrated his debut album release by teaming with ill.Gates for the raucous “Church of Bass” tour. Big things are already on the 2013 horizon as Jacobs is slated to bring his energetic live show to the first ever all electronic music stage at the iconic Van’s Warped Tour.
