Isaac Jacobs – “Time It Takes”


“Time It Takes” is a lush electronic success from San Francisco-based producer Isaac Jacobs, via his upcoming album Sorry I Haven’t Called.

Gentle synths lead into a comforting bass line, which ascends into a funk-tinged enamoring through its steady progression. Subtle guitar infusions add further to the fulfilling soundscape. “I’ve got to take the time it takes, and all the rest falls into place,” Jacobs’ serene vocals tout, aptly infusing a meditative ethos — emphasizing patience and precision — alongside the spacey synths and debonair bass line. This is a hazy, delectable production from Isaac Jacobs.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2023’ Spotify playlist.
