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 fist vinyl release. The EP features his current sound that he masterfully integrates into 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 and not trying to create a specific sound more listening to what sounds are good to me and feel right.”
He uses Prophet 12 a lot for the pads and most synthesized sounds in EP, using the all mighty moog voyager for the bass, recording percussion and vocals. Most of the recordings are made with longtime friends and some Berlin fellows.
Noah Rott, who played the keys for Fask is his first Piano teacher, which he met in Hamburg, but often collaborates ever since. “Another very close friend of mine, Joel Silberkuhl played the Hang drum for the Fask track and as well the guitar for Lacun, and we made music all day long living on the countryside in northern Germany, playing all kinds of music in our band; like reggae, hip hop, jazz and rock at the age of 13 years. We recently reconnected while i was working on the Fask EP I visited him in his house in Luneburg and we did a whole weekend just of recording all kinds of instruments that he bought himself over the years…”
This EP interlines Jacobs friendships and experience making it a heart-warming and truly personal release we are thrilled to share with you!
