Life so far has been an interesting musical journey for Jacob Malmo having already experienced life in three of Australia’s most influential cities. But it was his final move to Melbourne that saw him gain a passion for House, Techno and everything in between. In the years since he has developed a keen, mature ear playing only the highest standard of music.
Jacob’s energetic sets make him a crowd favourite in any venue. His ability to read and control a dance floor has seen him establish himself as the go to guy for an array of international warm up and support sets including Kolsch, Rampue, Super Flu, Oliver Huntemann, Ame, Dixon, Seth Troxler as well as playing the main stage at Strawberry Fields Festival 3 years in a row, as well as the majority of other major Australian music festivals. Besides residencies at prominent Melbourne clubs Onesixone, Bond, Secret Garden and Pawn and Co, he also currently runs a monthly club night at the legendary Revolver called MAMA SAID and plays regularly there on Sundays. Recently Jacob has started working for one of Australia’s busiest touring companies, Thick as Thieves by taking a role as a touring agent. Amongst his busy schedule he still manages to present a weekly radio show on KISS FM, Fridays from 7pm, with Jack Love and run 2 record labels, Ugenius Music and its new sister label Valiant Records which focuses on more house orientated music.
Jacob and Jack Love also have a new collaboration project titled The Journey. Their debut EP, Principium had huge support from national and international artists including Hernan Cattaneo, Eli and Fur and Matthias Meyer and includes a huge remix from Australian musical royalty, Jamie Stevens. It peaked at number 9 in the Aria Chart and stayed in the top 50 for over 15 weeks. Towards the end of 2016, The Journey was asked to remix the re-release of an iconic Australian anthem in ‘Yothu Yindi – Treaty’. Treaty also reached number 9 on the ARIA Club Chart and was a prominent feature amongst a number of sets at this year’s Rainbow Serpent Festival.
