About

The most faithful and resolute of electronic music producers maintain the rare ability to mold a collective series of sounds into a definitive structure that not only captures the essence of a given genre, but the essence of the artist himself. Those who are brave enough to venture outside the studio and present their craft to the world via DJ session or Live PA, carry the burden of having to seduce a crowd with their raw charisma. The responsibility of the artist and the performer are not always symbiotic. Sometimes the characteristics of the artist outweigh the performer. Sometimes it is the other way around. Any way you cut it, artists like Los Angles based Dubstep producer Jacob Coma seem to amount to the sum of both these traits with the greatest of ease.

Coma is a rare specimen who has rhythm tattooed to the invisible surface of his conscience. From his days as a child banging on pots and pans while his mother worked in the kitchen to his prodigious introduction into electronic music as a Hip Hop DJ, it has always been abundantly clear that music is in his blood. But a deep, intrinsic love and understanding of music can only get an artist so far. They must be able to accept, analyze and embrace all forms of music with an unwavering sense of curiosity. Perhaps it is that very sense of curiosity that has allowed Coma to excel stylistically. His musical pallet is seemingly endless, with influences that revolve around a complex constellation of genres. From House to Reggae, Jazz to Drum and Bass, Hip Hop, Breakbeats and beyond, Coma has spent the better part of his life lapping it all up.

Coma’s current endeavors into the realm of Dubstep have yielded a dynamic array of sounds. Melodic hooks, sweeping breakdowns and wobbling bass lines have become ubiquitous characteristics of his style. However, Coma carefully balances his driving, dance floor busting grooves with subtle audio edits and precision-crafted effects that provide an unsettling moodiness to his tracks. While listener’s bodies absorb the fullness of his audio-logical aura, their minds wonder elsewhere, carried off by molecular eruptions of ambient noise that seem to radiate into deep space.
The creature he becomes on stage further highlights the impact of his musical presence. While performing Coma physically transmits his energy to the audience, giving them little choice but to become physically involved. He presents himself as a mythic Banton of sound system culture, gracing the decks with an uncanny ease as he rallies a crowd around his big, bad bass. But as he winds his way through his performance, jumping and bouncing all over the stage, he maintains an air of humility. He is part of the party, not the party itself

Coma’s remixes of artists such as T-Pain, The Yeah Yeah Yeah's and The Baby Namboo’s have put him on the map as a crafty up and coming producer. His music has also seen support from dance music luminaries such as Udachi, Trillbass, Mochipet, Noah D, Puppy Kicker and Bassism Records. Coma has released tunes on Savory Audio, Open Circuit Recordings and recently recorded a DJ mix for R.FM.
