Produced by Stephan Jacobs, Identified Time blurs the lines between hip-hop and EDM, and calls upon listeners to reflect on the subtleties of their lives while at the same time unleashing their inner power.
Identified Time encompasses and explores the contradictions of life, the way we perceive reality, relationships, rites of passage and the growing pains of our days with a touch of the surreal. Souleye’s music is consciousness raising, wildly entertaining and a breath of melodic fresh air, all at once.
Souleye’s first release since 2013’s Iron Horse Running. Identified Time is a powerful return for Souleye to the forefront of the conscious hip-hop movement and calls upon a variety of influences that yield a modern blend of dynamic hooks and underground edge. CDs and downloads are available via www.souleye.net/merch and digital servicing will be available through iTunes, and across all streaming platforms.
World-renowned artist Rob Prior (Marvel, DC Comics) has created the album artwork for Identified Time, producing an incredible aesthetic work to match Identified Time’s aural experience. Prior’s work will be featured on several upcoming Souleye releases and limited edition pieces of the artwork will be available via www.souleye.net.

Introducing the new update for Rob Papen’s new synth “RAW” including 128 presets created by Stephan Jacobs. These mind altering sounds will step up your production.
For a few years I have had to pleasure of being one of Rob Papen’s Beta testers and Presenters at various Trade Shows such as the NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA.
Get RAW HERE: http://www.robpapen.com/raw.html
At the Dutch Dancefair 2014, DJ Promo (aka producer Sebastian Hoff) and DJ Free-K (aka producer Freek Vergoossen) approached Rob Papen with the idea of a synthesiser that focused more on ‘distorted’ sounds with an easy to use layout.
Renowned for delivering fresh, cutting edge and musical plugins for producers, Rob Papen invited the DJs to his studio for a brainstorming session resulting in a list of ‘must have’ features and tools for a brand new synth. Armed with this list and several more brainstorming sessions later, Rob Papen and his development team created a powerful new virtual synth RAW.
RAW has two oscillators each with an X/Y field, (as included in Blade and BLUEII) to distort the waveform using Phase Distortion. But that’s not all, you can also draw two of your own ‘waveforms’ and use them as LFO waveforms enabling the creation of unique ‘wobble’ movements that are perfect for for DubStep and other electronic music styles.
RAW has all the great Rob Papen filters to shape your sound further, but in a refreshing twist, ‘EQ’, ‘Waveshaper’, ‘Distortion’ and ‘LoFi’ have also been added on a voice synthesis level. Other FX such as Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, Stereo delay and the amazing HQ Reverb of Rob Papen can all be added to your sound and of course, the cool Arpeggiator/Sequencer, Easypage and preset bank manager have all been included as standard.
In true Rob Papen style, RAW comes with many great presets with mainly contributions from several well known DJs and Producers for instant user inspiration!
Promo, Stephan Jacobs, Ophidian, Mad dog, Deathmachine, D-Passion, Rob Fabrie, DJ Thera, N-Vitral, Tha Playah, DJ Hidden, The Viper, Warface, Amnesys and many more..

The remixes are a follow up to the Afterglow EP released in mid 2013. Featuring his unique spin on dubstep, emphasized by heavy yet melodic basslines and often accompanied by stunning vocals, the release rose to critical acclaim considered by many to be their Summer soundtrack.
It doesn’t stop there. The past few years have taken Stephan all over North America, and then some. With spots on the Vans Warped Tour, Identity Festival, the Church of Bass Tour (with ill.gates), the Illumination Tour (with Pretty Lights), and the 143 Tour (with Love & Light) he has secured himself as a permanent fixture in the ever-evolving Bass Music scene.
Its not everyday, or even every year, that you get a new Stephan Jacobs mixtape. #SJmix2014 is set to come out as an appetizer to the “Afterglow Remixes EP”, which will be available on February 3rd, on Simplify Recordings. It will be available everywhere, with remixers by; Kiaro Kingdom, Rudebrat, Knight Riders, B.R.E.E.D, Bottle Service, Serenity and a bonus live version of “Build The Sky” redone as a live band with a music video
On this mix is also the debut of the first single “Take Over The World Tonight” featuring @magicmomentsofficial, from the still in progress EP “Suspended in a Sunbeam” (out this summer).
Says Stephan “The title for the upcoming album came about as a result of feeling more humbled by the universe of late. I have been listing to some inspiring quotes, and this one is from Carl Sagan’s about “The Pale Blue Dot”, brings me to the feeling of equality, no matter what our job or position on earth may be due to the human condition we experience…we all have our ups and downs.”
~Carl Sagan Quote
“From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of any particular interest. But for us, it’s different. Consider again that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”
After Warped Tour I built my new studio in Downtown Los Angeles, “Bass Cartel HQ”, and have finally been able to get deeper into the fusion of EDM and analog/live music tracking. It has been a learning process, and is proving to be well worth it! Over the past few months I have produced a new EP with “Souleye”, collaborated with a bunch of artists (including my good pals Vokab Kompany) and am in the midst of writing a ton of new music.
TWould be rad if y’all could repost this mix, and share the love. Be sure to hashtag it #SJmix2014 so we can all be linked via internet space web.
