The Dresden producer and Uncanny Valley mainstay presents his vision of evergreen house and modulated electronics. Recorded at Sónar 2008.

Besides his actual profession on the interface of audio, visual and dance, Jacob Korn has also been producing electronic music for what seems like an eternity. Early in his career he combined hip hop and techno with elements of jazz and weird electronics under the moniker Granufunk. Under his civil name he is now focussing predominantly on classic but versatile techno and house. After releases on labels such as Running Back, Skylax and Permanent Vacation, a brilliant first release on Steffi’s Dolly label (the highly acclaimed Supakrank) and of course Uncanny Valley, he now belongs to the forerunners of the German house scene, with his tracks and remixes as well as his live sets much in demand. He has played live pretty much everywhere: in the USA, Chile and Japan, in European techno strongholds such as London, Barcelona and Rome, and of course all the notable clubs in Germany. But more than just a dancefloor filler, Jacob Korn has shown himself to be an producer of vision and imagination on his debut album You & Me, while his EP series on Uncanny Valley looks set to challenge the EP format too.
