In 2013 Melbourne 5 piece, Jakubi, uploaded their first track to Soundcloud. It was a hit. 50,000 plays by the end of the second week. Their second single was the same and then again their third. Now, with their fourth single “Couch Potato” circulating, the band has amassed over 2,500,000 plays worldwide.
Their songs use a mix of sounds to draw in the listener. From VERY catchy reggae inspired guitar to clever synth and of course the hip hop sounding drum fills, it definitely makes sure the listener understands exactly what’s going to happen next; you’re about to start dancing. Lead vocals are the responsibility of Jerome Farah, his seamless transition between natural vocals and his use of a talk box adds a diversity to the music that only keeps you bopping along to the music.
