Born in a Dutch family of artists and musicians, playing piano and drums since 5 years old while listening to his grandfathers Duke Ellington records trying to replay “C-Jam Blues” it was only natural for Jacob to give his life and heart to music at an early age…
From drumming in Hardcore Punk bands to touring the world with Brazillian band Zuco 103 and working in recordstore Fat Beats he quikly laid down a strong and solid foundation to build his career as a producing musician and Disc Jockey.
After trying out a 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.
Teaming up with Dj Aardvarck and Steven De Peven (now Awanto3) he started the Rednose Distrikt collective.
Realeasing many singles on Rushhour and an album on Kindred Spirits, Kid deceided to start a solo career.
From his DeepHouse series “Basemenworks” on Rushhour to soul album “Basement Soul” on Kindred Spirits to Hip-Hop album “Rappin’ Blak” on Dopenessgalore to working with the likes of:
Lady Alma, Camp Lo, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Declaime, Tableek, Recloose, RencenCoolBeanz, Frank n Dank and many more, Kid established himself as a diverse record producer.
His latest Soulful House efforts on MCDE/Facesrecords: “I won’t give u up” and his hit record " The Return Of The Basehead E.P." kicked of his long awaited comeback as a Housemusic producer and club Deejay.
Getting spins from Laurent Garnier, Carl Craig, Recloose, Dj Deep, Rich Medina, RiskSoundSystem and then some, Kid’s infectious funky and soulful House sounds are sureshot records amongst deejays and dancers accross the globe.
Playing 70’s Disco classics, US Garage, Detroit Techno and exclusive new productions Kid Sublime’s deejay sets are a dancing experience to say the least.
