A person who lives in Seattle and makes electronic music as both 'Hanssen' and 'Jacob London'.
‘Hanssen’ is a person named Bob Hansen. This person was born in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States of America, where he has continued to live since that day. Approximately 17 years after he was born he began to collaborate musically with another person who goes by the name of Dave Pezzner. They produced and released a body of original work and remixes under the name ‘Jacob London’. This work was mainly created in a style most referred to as “quirky house”, “funky house”, or “jackin’ quirk balls”. Many people around the world appreciated their output so much, they were invited to travel to other continents and play this music for them. Many times, people were even content to hear them play other people’s music.
Currently, Bob Hansen is producing music by himself as ‘Hanssen’ (as has been previously stated). The music he creates under this name is much less dance-club-centric, as he himself is getting old and, most times, would rather just sit down. As a result of having a desk job, he is afforded quite a large sum of time to spend listening to new music. Some of which he draws influence from for his own creations. The majority of the music that gets digested in this fashion tends to fall in the genre categories of “ambient”, “indie-dance”, “bass music”, “future garage”, “synth”, among others. He has been lucky enough to provide his services as a remixer to various labels, on musical compositions by some very talented people whom he admires very much, including Si Begg, Ian Pooley, Lusine, Pezzner, Colette, among others.
