CRACKAZAT - RAINBOW FANTASIA (LOCAL TALK)

Ben Jacobs aka Crackazat first made a name for himself when he was still living in Bristol and released on EP on the city’s Futureboogie label, which has also signed music from the likes of Julio Bashmore, Crazy P and Outboxx.

 

Early in his career Crackazat was also the official warm up act for an at the time up and coming artist called Floating Points, who now needs no introduction as one of the world’s leading electronic music producers. Moving to Sweden shortly after the Futureboogie release, Crackazat made contact with the Local Talk owners Mad Mats and Tooli, and after a couple of single/EP releases signed his debut solo album Crescendo.

 

The last couple of years Crackazat has had an explosion of global popularity, which has led to playing gigs all over the world, and release tracks and remixes on labels ranging from Josh Wink's Ovum, Joey Negro's Z Records and Eureka in Japan.


Classically trained with a strong Jazz influence, Crackazat has a distinctively individual sound that fuses funk with soulful vocals and the electronic bass music associated with his former home of Bristol.

 

Eloquent and intelligent, Rainbow Fantasia is a masterpiece that showcases one of electronic music’s most exciting talents.
