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.
jOBOT takes the live elements of his solo-work to their pinnacle in his electronica group, Continuum. It is a bold and radically new way to experience electric music—glitch infects live drum rhythm, live bass communicates with the textures of synthesized soundscapes.
It was love at first drop when Headtron family heard jOBOT’s unforgettable sunrise session at the 5 Points Musical Festival in 2011. jOBOT has earned his place in a home amongst artists equally committed to pushing the sonic envelope at Headtron. His widely acclaimed debut EP, “Sweet and Low” has been dominating the charts since its release on Feb 29th of this year. Since then he has been slaying shows in and around the western United States including a stellar set at The Do LaB stage at Coachella 2012.
