In Session: Job Jobse
An ode to rave music from one of dance music's brightest talents
It's 4am at Glastonbury on Monday morning and the final set we catch of the 2016 edition is perhaps the best of the entire weekend. It may be because The Temple is such an auditory and sensory mindfuck, it might be because we're on the brink of completing yet another successful Glastonbury in spite of a crushing Brexit defeat but we're pretty sure it's down to the fact Ben UFO and Job Jobse are playing the perfect festival set.
The pair followed on from another irresistible b2b pairing of Midland and Palms Trax and cuts like '21 Le Fou' by Lock Eyes and 'Rectum' by Fango were simultaneously soothing and bruising minds. The final track was 'I Want Your Soul' by Armand Van Helden and it was one of the greatest Glastonbury moments we've ever witnessed. You've always been able to rely on Ben UFO to deliver an outstanding set but over the last few years, Job Jobse has carved out a reputation for himself, one that's seen him rise up as one of the most popular DJs on the circuit.
The Amsterdam-based DJ has experienced a huge surge in popularity recently and rightfully so. Anyone who's experienced nightlife in the Dutch capital over the last ten years will be familiar with Trouw, one of the most beautiful clubs that ever opened its doors and Job was captaining at its helm for years. His first proper DJ sets were at the recently closed hotspot and after spending some time as a programmer, he became one of the club's fearless residents and one of the longest to serve there.
To be able to play at a club like Trouw on regular basis is one thing, but to seamlessly command a crowd there and become one of the most respected selectors to grace its decks is a completely different thing. Jobse played the final ever set there and has subsequently moved onto Trouw's new project De School, to frequently orchestrate nights of magic and wonder. Seeing him roll out a 12 hour set there isn't unheard of but it's something we're itching to witness soon.
