I'd like to introduce you to a new concept in the rave scene called the Sons of Jacob. SOJ are a clique of artists who aim to bring a positive, lively, happy vibe to the ravers, ultimately making their rave experience a more memorable one! There are several members of the clique, some new and some well established on the scene. SOJ members possess many versatile skills and can work with a variety of genres of music. Our members include:
