Hey Jacob, great to hear from you. How are you?

I am doing well. I did some traveling to Colombia recently. It felt great to meet people face to face after all of this time off with the pandemic. I’m happy to have the opportunities back to perform and play my music.

How would you compare ‘Groovin’ to some of your other releases?

The main element that drives this song is the bassline. Though the bassline is always an element I like to make stand out, this particular bassline carries a groove that gives the song a nice melody to dance too.

How has your musical style developed over the past year? 

I feel like my creativity has come quicker over the past year. I get inspired by a lot of other different genres like hip hop, rnb, reggaeton, trap and others.

Do you have a favourite section of the ‘Groovin’? 

The bridge that goes into the last drop. I feel the bridge carries a lot of suspense and anticipation. It is also very melodic which helps make the song more memorable to the listener.

What other projects are you working on at the moment?

I have a song titled Sippin that is currently out as well on my label Made to Move Records.

What artists do you have your eye on in the scene at the moment?

I’ve been listening to a lot of guys like Peppe Citarella, Martinez Bros, and even guys like Kanye West.

Did you overcome any struggles when you were making ‘Groovin’?

Not too much. The sample and bass groove worked well once I lined it up. From there, I created a structure around it and added secondary melodies.

How would you describe the track to someone who hasn’t heard ‘Groovin’ before?

I would say the title speaks for itself. The song is very groovy.

How would you describe the typical ‘Jacob Colon’ sound?

My sound has of a lot of different influences. The base of my sound is very percussive and rhythmic like afro-house. I like to use congas, toms, etc. But it has a touch of deep house when you listen to the type of sounds, I use like a vocal synth or warm pads.

Finally, where can we go to listen to this release?

Out now on all music platforms.
