CONT^CT is Zach Jacobs, a New York City architect who spends his time away from design, producing and performing all over the Tri-State Area.
Under his new name and persona, CONT^CT is taking his music to new depths, demonstrating multi-instrumental talents and a keen ear for excitement. This gifted architect is setting down the pencil to deliver mash-ups and originals of lush symphonies likely to get you out of your seat.
His track “Voices” has been received warmly, citing its celestial vocals and a distinctive “progressive electronic flavor.” CONT^CT performs regularly at The Governor's Ball Silent Disco, Electric Beach, and The Gansevoort Park Red Room. He has opened for the likes of 3LAU, Laidback Luke, Dirty South, Cazzette, Big Gigantic, and Sultan + Ned Shepard as well as DJed the official MLS after party at the Highline Ballroom.
Having tried his hand at an array of instruments, focusing on guitar and piano, he masterfully melds diverse musical segments of Dutch and Swedish house influence into impressive displays of soaring guest vocals and upbeat rhythms. CONT^CT is now a resident of New York City where his beats are well suited for the sleepless city with intense peaks and falls that exemplify the sounds of the night.
