Future house is having its moment in America, and British young-gun Jacob Plant is leading the crusade with his shimmering opus “Ice Cream.”
Premiered on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show, “Ice Cream” is a delicious mix of dreamy synths, warm reverbs, ethereal drum rolls and sporadic vocal toppings that will transport you to a sun-drenched beach day even in the depths of winter.
“Ice Cream” is a welcomed follow-up to the beatmaker’s Louder EP which released on Dim Mak last spring and peaked at #5 on Beatport’s Electro House chart. The global success of his original works is only matched by his officially-commissioned, star-studded remix catalogue which includes Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” Calvin Harris’ “Need Your Love” and Iggy Azalea’s “Work.”
After beginning 2014 with the newly-minted title of “wonder-kid” by UK’s Music Week, Jacob Plant showcased his uptempo sounds to dance floors the world over with performances at Pacha Ibiza, Reading and Leeds Festival, Lollapalooza and HARD Day of the Dead.
“Jacob Plant absolutely smashing it. This is the future right here in case you need to be told.” – Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1
