Biography

Kid Sublime

Born in a Dutch family of artists and musicians, playing piano and drums since 5 years old it was
only natural for Jacob to give his life and heart to music at an early age.
Hearing Duke Ellington’s album „Back To Back” for the first time in his early childhood, Jacob was
more then eager to learn and replay the songs on the piano and half a drumkit his grandfather
brought him from his tours as a flute player in Japan. So grandfather so son!
From drumming in Hardcore Punk bands to touring the world with Brazillian band Zuco 103 and
working in local recordstore Fat Beats, Jacob quickly laid down a strong and solid foundation to
build his career as a producing musician and Disc Jockey.
After trying out an Akai MPC 60 in the late 90’s, Kid Sublime got hooked to the machine and a few
years later he released his first House 12”, “Tea For Two” which got re-edited by Francois K from
the legendary Body And Soul crew.
Teaming up with Dj Aardvarck and Steven De Peven (now Awanto3) he started the Rednose
Distrikt collective.
After releasing countless singles on Rushhour and an album on Kindred Spirits, Kid was ready to
start his solo career.
From his left-field Deep-House series Basement Works on Rushhour (2003) to soul album
Basement Soul on Kindred Spirits (2005) to Hip-Hop album Rappin’ Blak on Dopeness Galore
(2008) to Japanese Hip-Hop album Hot Water Music on Teppen Records (2014) to working with
the likes of:
Lady Alma, Camp Lo, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Declaime, Tableek, Recloose, CoolBeanz, Frank n
Dank, Illa J, Defari and many more, Kid Sublime established himself as a diverse record producer
and songwriter.
His latest Soulful House and Techno efforts on MCDE/Faces Records, „I won’t give u up” and his
hit records, „The Return Of The Basehead E.P.”„Back In The Ballroom Vol.1” and „The Ringtone
EP on Hot Shot Sounds as well as his 2013 ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) Boilerroom set kicked
off his long awaited comeback as a Housemusic producer and club Deejay.
Getting spins from Laurent Garnier, Carl Craig, Recloose, Steve Bug, Rich Medina, Ben Sims,
Inkswel, Ryan Elliot, Anton Pieete and then some, Kid’s infectious funky and soulful House sounds
are sure shot records amongst deejays, dancers and clubheads across the globe.

Playing 70’s Disco classics, US Garage, Detroit Techno and exclusive new productions, Kid
Sublime’s deejay sets will definitely leave the dancers and clubheads satisfied after a long night of
soulful grooves and deep vibes.
