Tobacco Rat is the solo project of accomplished WA producer and composer Jake Steele, who is delving deeper into darker, subterranean music styles. In the rat sack is a varied mix of electronic, bass, futurebeat, industrial, dancehall, techno and hip hop styles; which Tobacco Rat expertly meshes together, resulting in wild, heavy beats with warped, bass-led grooves. Tobacco Rat is a project ideally experienced live, where smoke machines and custom reactive visuals, MIDI controllers and a giant albino rat create an electrifying atmosphere. Recently Tobacco Rat has released his debut EP and additional single, had multiple tracks receive high rotation on Triple J Unearthed, won Best Electronic Track (Trenchtown 2020/Infra) two years in a row at the WAM Awards, win the Triple J Unearthed competition to open up the Listen Out Festival in Perth, played Groovin The Moo and also supported Empire Of The Sun in Los Angeles. With a forthcoming new EP due out on Trench Records, official remixes, another national tour, festival appearances, national supports, new music videos and 3d printed merchandise in production the future looks exciting for Tobacco Rat.
