Recently Sam from the music to Make You Wobble playlist had the chance to chat with fellow Producer and MC Jakebbob about his current release: Wolf Whistle Dub:
Sam: (about wolf whistle) What made you revisit the track you originally released on Southpoint as an instrumental with the new vocal structure?
Jakebob: I started going through a phase of reworking my tracks to devil mixes, as well as slower versions as 130. Wolf Whistle was always a huge percy of mine since I made it, but it never really got the vocal i thought it deserved. After 1 mc flopped voicing the new version i thought "fuck it I’m just gonna do it" and i'm glad i did. The tracks proper open and spacey and really suited my MC style imo.
Sam: How was the process with working with Southpoint for your debut album? Has it been a long time in the works?
Jakebob: It's always great working alongside Jay + Josh at southpoint because they're professionally on job, and always to the point, an attitude i can really get behind. I think we'd probably first mentioned it about a year back, Jay asked if i would release my debut album on Southpoint and i was happy to. Probably around dec/jan19 we started tracklisting and sorting the selection out. A lot of the tunes were older bits I'd sat on for a while and was glad for the opportunity to showcase all elements of my production style - as well as clear the slate for new music.
Sam: If you could summarize the lyric content/meaning behind Wolf Whistle dub for the people new to your music in a couple of lines, how would it go?
Jakebob: Probably just knowing yourself and playing to your own strengths. I try to keep the element of reality in all of my tunes, stay away from gassing and "talking rubbish". I love music and smokin weed so i talk about it alot
