  • Jakub Rene Kosik aka JRK (born 27 March 1983 in Gniezno) is a Polish musician, composer, arranger, music producer, DJ and live act. Also known as JaQb / IP, Kosik also worked as a producer in projects such as: Lincoln Six Echo, Terror Smith, Jordan 2 Delta, Miss Masturbator & Babe The Hummer and many others. He first began composing songs at the age of eight, using an Amiga computer and applications like Noise Tracker. He did not like to use of ready-made samples so he started creating the samples with a home construction sampler connected to the computer. He continued to develop his skills until releasing his first music in 1994; the American company Almathera published the first CD-ROM intended for Polish users in the history of the Amiga, "CDPL",and added Jakub Rene Kosik's material, among many other things. Many of his samples were later used in the so-called music modules, including the CD-ROM "The Sound and Modules" (EXE, PL). Three years later in 1997, Jakub was able to get into Wrocław's night party "Technodelic Vinyl Night", where he met the organizers: DJ Mniamos and Patrycja Hefczyńska (Husky, Őszibarack). The conversation led to cooperation so that two weeks later, Jakub performed his first public live act in the Wroclaw's Liverpool club. He became the youngest producer in the world of electronic dance music, playing live, without the use of a computer, record players or CD players. The original musical style--a combination of house, acid techno and minimal--carried a series of performances throughout Poland, both clubs, as well as at the open-air parties, on the occasion of the so-called teknivals. He was also a resident of the legendary Maska club in Wroclaw. Barely a year after its first performance, Czech label CDC Records released the debut album "Meadow 303", on which there were eight tracks, all based largely on the sound of Roland's TB-303, in accordance with the title. In 2000, Jakub Rene Kosik published his next album, Live Acid Sessions (LeKOS, PL). This time, all of the material was recorded both in studio and live at events in which he performed. With the development of his career on stage, he was also involved in the organization of musical events, including the "I Have My Own Space" charity series where he performed solo, and all income from tickets was given to Early Childhood House No. 1 in Wroclaw. He then established his own world record of creating 510 minutes (8.5 hours) of live music created, using electronic instruments such as samplers, sequencers, drum machines, synthesizers, etc. without using a computer, record players, CD players and without even one break. During this time, he was independent. In 2003 he gained access to the prestigious "City Beats" booking agency, which was known mainly from the import and co-organize events with top artists from all over the world. At the same time he began to produce slower and softer tracks. With the City Beats, he began to work in the largest Polish clubs and events, such as the Water Festival (in 2004, 2005 and 2006, or Mixologia), established cooperation with many big names, and played alongside such artists as Cristian Varela, DJ Preach, Southsoniks, DJ Emerson, Holgi Star, Leandro Gamez, Oxia, Marco Remus, Oliver Ho, Jack de Marseille, Asem Shama, Alex Bau, Chris Liebing, Rafael Araujo, Takaaki Itoh, Alex Flatner, Pet Duo, Lawrie Immersion, Animatek, Chris Liberator, Henry Cullen aka DAVE the Drummer, Paula Temple, Julian Sandell aka Julian Liberator, Martyn Hare and Mark Hawkins.
