If you look at his gig schedule now compared to a few years back, it's quite astonishing to see how far Jobse has come. Astonishing yes but surprising, not at all. Stops at Panorama Bar, fabric and at the biggest festivals all over the world have become a normal occurrence and his inclusion at Innervisions' Lost In A Moment parties have been a joy to see.
Alongside Dixon, Job seems to have found a regular sparring partner and this week sees their most ambitious gig to date. The duo will play b2b for seven hours at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, one of the world's most beautiful and highly-regarded concert venues. It seems like the most apt place for the pair's strain of dreamscape electronica and Jobse has established himself as an artist who's more than acquainted with music that floats and flourishes.
His musical style is one that gleefully intertwines between house, disco, techno, acid, deep house and everything in between. He's a selector that transports and transcends audiences with music that fills you with warm barbs of emotion. He's a happy DJ, one that exudes confidence and joy and that's the sort of trait that has drawn so many fans to his music.
Those of you lucky enough to be attending Love Saves The Day in Bristol on May 27 will get to see the man in action and we've got a brilliant taster of what to expect. His In Session mix is one of our favourite this year. It's a homage to early rave music and it's going to blow you away. We spoke with Job to find out his thoughts behind the mix and this is what he said.
"I wanted to make a mix with strictly early rave tracks. Ever since I got into dance music I’ve been obsessed with rave culture and the things that were going on in the early 90’s. Especially in the UK, The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany (and on this little island called Ibiza of course). Even though I was still in diapers when it was actually happening
Most of the tracks in the mix were released between 1991 and 1992, an amazing period where stuff wasn’t yet strictly divided by genre and classified as techno, trance or acid, it was just RAVE music.
Shout out to James Holden (please start DJing again), JD Twitch from Optimo (for introducing me to half of the records in this mix), the Bicep boys (thanks for the edits), Marino Stephano (R.I.P.) and Cosmic Baby (or the Mozart of trance as some might say)"
Shout out to Job Jobse for an incredible mix.
