In 2022 Sem Jacobs launched his solo career. This was an exciting first year; launching his label, doing his first shows abroad, with his first releases being supported by the scene’s high flight DJ’s and this seems to be just the beginning.
In March, Sem made his debut for none other than No Art and shortly after, he performed at the iconic Printworks in London for the 10th Anniversary of Solid Grooves in April. In September “the young man from Alkmaar” did his first show in South America at Salón Amador in Medellín, Colombia. Sem Jacobs is making his way up in the house scene as he also decided to launch his own label FUNKiMAN (in May), combining his two biggest passions: wine & jazz.
The first few releases reached over hundreds of thousands of listeners all over the world and the hit track ‘Pass Me The Wine Please’ even made it to BBC Radio 1. Sem’s music and live sets can be defined as groovy, rhythmic, funky and refreshing, while staying true to his roots.
