Bruno Jakob


Read the Bruno Jakob Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


Hello, my name is Bruno Jakob, im from São Paulo/Brazil, and im 26years old, since i was a young kid i've been always really interested into music, my older sisters used to listen a lot of Heavy Metal/Rock/Pop classics like Iron Maiden, Metallica, ACDC, Rolling Stones, etc…
I still remember like yesterday the first time i saw a DJ playing, he was father of a friend of my school, i think i was 5 or 6 years old, we went to my friend house, and in the living room her father was spinning some vinyls, and that got me hypnotized, i was like: "What's that?", and thats how i realized i wanted to learn how to DJ.
Several years later, when i was 17(2008), always when i had a chance to use a cdj i kept trying to mix on my own, some friends used to give me hints but i learned by myself, but still very insecure to play on a dancefloor. Finally on 2010 i recorded my first DJ set and sent it to some friends that already used to work on clubs, and another DJ (Glaucia++), who used to have a project on wednesdays really liked my set and called me to play on her party on the next week.(A really big club on SP/D-edge). The gig was succesfull, that she called me to join the residents of her project.
On 2011 d-edge closed to renovate, and after months, it opened with 2 more dancefloors, and my carreer was just starting, i used to had 3-4 gigs/week.
When the club Re-opened, i started to work on the friday's project, more focused on house music… I used to dj, and help on promoting, management, host the guests. It was a great oportunnity to increase and learn about how to work on the night, and know lots of Dj's.
On 2015 i left d-edge staff, and started to freelance DJ on clubs/restos/pubs.
Since that time, i worked on some other clubs(for short time), but promoting, and not DJ'ing, so i quitted because i love to Dig music and DJ, not promoting..
OVer all these years i got the oportunity to have some gigs on London, Amsterdam, New Zealand, Chile..


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


I used to say that my main electronic style was house music, but actually i realized that i cant focus only on house. I think a deejay must play always paying attention on the dancefloor to know what track to mix after, no matter if its House, Techno, minimal.. That's the true challenge for the DJ, know the perfect time to put a track that will keep the dancefloor crowded, and that's what i try to improve everyday on my dj carreer.


What´s new right now?


Actually im planning to start Music Production classes, but to be honest my passion is to Dj, mix tracks and make a history on the DJ Set.
But i think will be great on the future to play some of my own tracks! Hehe
