Biography

ZOiD is Dublin musician Daniel Jacobson. As a teenager he was introduced to techno music by two DJs who lived in his neighbourhood, igniting a lifelong passion for electronic club music. Simultaneously he discovered and fell in love with jazz, and later studied with some of Ireland’s greatest jazz musicians. At 17, his first techno tracks came to the attention of D1 Records boss Eamonn Doyle, who offered him a chance to record some tracks at D1’s studio. He performed at The Funnel 4 times before it closed in 1999, twice for D1 and twice for Decal’s Phunk City. In 1999 he founded a label called Diatribe, and released the first record on the label, the Subinersoll EP. Diatribe went on to become Ireland’s biggest contemporary music label. From thousands of applicants, he was accepted as a participant at the 2006 Red Bull Music Academy in Melbourne. Co-participants that year included Flying Lotus, Oddisee and Nina Kraviz, all of whom developed very successful careers in music. A highlight for ZOiD was playing live as a support slot for Mu-Ziq at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel. Since then he has spent time building and running a music school, Ultimate School of Music, putting on workshops and masterclasses in guitar and electronic music, making electronic music and writing songs. He’s released 3 albums and several EPs, on labels including Meljoann’s Boy Scout Audio, D1, French label Hormonal Vibrationz and his own Zoitrax label. Recently he signed 2 tracks to Dan Curtin’s Metamorphic Records, about which Four Four Magazine said "ZOiD has carved a slice of Irish dance music history for himself as joins Metamorphic Recordings". His first release for Metamorphic, the “Dexaphonic EP”, will be released on vinyl and digital formats in July 2022. His own label Zoitrax released his 3rd album “ZONGS”, featuring collaborations with 8 different vocalists, on digital and CD formats on 8th April 2022.
