Nico Jacobsen makes music as Hound Scales. He used to live in San Francisco and recently made the move upstate to New York to set up a label with Brooklyn-based producer Divvorce. According to reliable sources Jacobsen wears a lot of Japanese clothes, watches around 7 films a week, and is skeptical of everything. Operating as a creature of the night, he likes to make music “that could keep others company in those hours of need.”
Upon first hearing the results of his late night tinkering, what instantly grabbed us about this young chap was his refined apetite for warehouse music. His sound sits somewhere between SLO and Karenn and finds a mature balance between straight, big-room ruffage and atmospheric delicacy. You can pick up his impressive debut ‘Case (Nabis)’ for his his own Fifth Wall Records now.
Hound Scales kindly introduces himself with a 60 minute blend of pure junta rave vibes…
