"The SUBPAC quite simply is amazing! I've found that it has helped me with getting my sub to sit better in the mix!"
Q&A with Jakes about the SUBPAC:
What role does “feeling” play in the music you make and love?
Feeling the bass is essential to me and how I produce.
Has the SUBPAC changed the way you create, produce or mix music?
The SUBPAC has enhanced the way I make my music in relation to how I shape the bass.
How could “physical audio” change our relationship to sound and music in the future?
I feel the Physical Audio aspect in music is ever evolving and it takes you to a deeper level of understanding the role the bass plays in music.
What excited you about the Feel SUBPAC project?
Everything excites me on the Feel SUBPAC project. The SUBPAC is going to revolutionize the way we approach music full stop.
Jakes has many strings to his bow. From being front man to many live acts e.g T.C, Pendulum and Ez Rollerz to being the head of his own genre straddling label Hench Recordings, he has made a lasting mark on the world wide underground bass scene. With a globally renowned stature for genre straddling music and inimitable style and having garnered support from legends such as Benga, Scream, Gaslamp Killer, Mary Anne Hobbs, Zeds Dead and Paul Walford to name but a few, the U.K vocalist turned dubstep pacemaker boasts an extensive repertoire that has only expanded and metamorphosed with time.
Not one to sit back on his laurels Jakes has gone on to produce remixes that have topped download charts, score for films The Black Swan – directed by Darren Aronofski and more recently Offender – directed by Ron Scalpello and release on such diverse labels such as Tectonic, Don’t Play, Power of 3, Shogun Audio, Ram and Slit Jockey. With all this behind him Jakes looks forward to what the future has to hold.
