Joe Wendt, aka jOBOT, began his love affair with music fingering the strings of the upright jazz bass at age 12. Never losing track of his classical training, his repertoire voraciously swallowed up every genre, and Jazz cohabitated happily with many muses—dearest to his heart, Funk.
2008: Enter: Warp Records, Squarepusher. The sounds of the electrified bass, the crunchy, tasty, awesome-sauce bass, were the crucible in which Joe Wendt was transformed into jOBOT.
jOBOT is an original producer of pulsating midtempo grooves and scandalously sexy downbeat melodies. An electronic musician of a whole new type, he fuses an immense breadth and depth of listening and training with funk-fueled bass playing, smooth vocals, and an ineffable balls-out, experimental, and creative spirit that “jOBOT” encompasses.
