Mixed Feelings | Mo Jakob
A special guest-mix series where DJs are invited to create a soundtrack for tomorrow's days. Next up: One of Rotterdam's finest curators Mo Jakob.
Every Mixed Feelings podcast is accompanied by a few questions that provide a little insight to the DJ and the mix they've prepared for us and for you.
Which feelings do we find bottled in this mix?
A lot of feeling and emotions went into this mix, man. It reflects this current situation we're in, so expect it to go to all borders: a blend of anger, gratitude, sadness, happiness, and confusion.
What message does the music you play convey?
The message I always want to carry out is to think for yourself and feel what you want to feel.
How is the mix reflecting your current music taste?
My taste is broad but nowadays triggered by 'hardness'. In this mix, I wanted to portray the urgency of letting go and acceptance. I did so with uptempo electronics that, in my opinion, confirms the current state of electronic music and its message.
Who should release a new album/EP already?
Giaderza. Giaderza is the future!
If the mix would be a soundtrack, what audio-visual content would support it best?
The recent riots in Rotterdam-Zuid regarding the curfew. Madness ensued and I took that as a starting point.
