Across The Tracks with Crackazat


Originally from Bristol England, Ben Jacobs aka Crackazat is a multi-Instrumentalist and electronic producer. Since his emergence on the international scene, he quickly became recognised for his unique fusion of Jazz and House music. His special blend of groovy music has seen him release singles and remixes on labels such Future Boogie, Local Talk, Defected, Z Records, Freerange, Anujuna Deep, Heist Recordings and many more.

He has released four albums to date ‘Crescendo’ (2015) and ‘Rainbow Fantasia’ (2017), a Crackazat Edits album for Local Talk (2019), and ‘Evergreen’ (2022). Crackazat performs both DJ sets and his live show. The live performance truly showcases his specialist skill as a multi-instrument performer, setting the bar high with his glorious keyboard solos, funky bass guitar, and general infectious grooviness. As his new set of remixes of Crystal Waters & Soul Central ft Robin S’ ‘Love One Another’ drops on Quantize Recordings, LV invites Crackazat to go Across The Tracks..
