12" Vinyl D
First Earthly Delights vinyl comes from Jacob Groening, with remix support by Gab Rhome.
We are happily welcoming Jacob Groening to the Earthly Delights family, a talented producer that has been on our radar for a while. Jacob comes through with a very special 3 track EP, which will be our first ever vinyl release. The EP features his unique sound that he masterfully integrates into his live shows. Working more with musicians that he records at his studio, he plays around with the recordings, taking it to the extremes when it comes to cutting, pitching, warping. “...following my intentional flow, not trying to force a specific sound. I am more listening to what sounds are good to me and feel right.”
Jacob uses Prophet 12 a lot for the pads and most synthesized sounds in EP, using the almighty moog voyager for the bass, recording percussion and vocals. Most of the recordings are made with long-time friends and other Berlin musicians.
Noah Rott, who played the keys for Fask is Jacob’s first Piano teacher from Hamburg and they have often collaborated since. “Another very close friend of mine, Joel Silberkuhl, played the hang drum for Fask and the guitar for Lacun. I visited him at his house in Luneburg in northern Germany and we made music all day long. It brought us back to our jam sessions when we were just 13 years old, playing reggae, hip hop, jazz and rock...”
Joining the release is a Canadian smooth vibes operator, Gab Rhome, who delivers a minimal melodic house vinyl only version that's perfect to have on a 12”.
This EP interlines Jacobs friendships and experience making it a heart-warming and truly personal release we are thrilled to share with you! [info sheet from distr.]
