Biography

Born as Jacob Otten on 19-5 1981 in Naarden, Holland.

Jacob started playin drums and piano when he was just 5 years old. After hearing Duke Ellington’s album “Back to Back” he knew he wanted to do just one thing: play music. He practised drums and piano every day and 10 years later started his first band with his schoolmates, a hardcore punk band. Through this band he got in touch with skateboarding… and hip hop.

After seeing the video to Gangstarr’s “Step in the Arena” he found his new passion: Scratching. He started practising, won a Dutch scratching contest and landed a job in the Fat Beats record store in Amsterdam. Only 17 at the time, he learned a lot through his store collegue and received local fame through his mixtapes. The next logical step was to get a MPC drumcomputer to enhance his mixtapes, which he did… still being only 18.

A year later Jacob was asked to be tour DJ of Dutch-Brazil band Zuco103 and join them on their world tour. He quit Fat Beats and went along. Playing all the big festivals and well known clubs around the world for the next 2,5 years.

In between tours he recorded his first solo tracks, which were released on Steven de Peven’s Zephons Mom label, also from Amsterdam, entitled “Tea For Two”, which continues to sell to this date. Jacob and Steven bonded well and they formed Rednose Distrikt together. They went on to record and release several tracks, which were later compiled on one album called “Iller Dan Je Ouders” (Iller Than Your Parents) released by Kindred Spirits.
