Jakob Bundgaard is featured in our latest campaign video. Besides being our campaign model he’s working as a producer, and has composed songs for several Danish musicians under the alias ‘Noodle’. We’ve asked him a few questions about inspiration and being in the music industry:
What are you up to these days?
Currently I’m finishing a new album with my friend and artist Lord Siva. I’m very proud of the outcome, which will be released later this year.

I’m not doing much besides the album. I’ve started planning my next project, and I have some artists in mind, but nothing’s certain yet.
I make music ‘cause it’s the only thing I can keep doing without getting bored. There’s no limit for developing on this journey, and it just makes me so happy to do what I love. I remember when my mom gave me a bunch of vinyl’s when I was fourteen. I sampled a trumpet from one of the records and added bass and a drum. It didn’t sound very well, but that was where it all began.
A lot has happened between mixing my first piece to being on the stage.
How would you describe your style?
That’s a tough one to answer. I’ve always had a thing for the drums, and I try to differentiate the sound in every production. The drum and hi-hat most often have a sharp and significant role in the mix. I guess that it has become my signature thing.
Do you have any role models?
Daft Punk – definitely – they’re on another level. I’m very fund of the way they promote their music. I don’t like being in the spotlight, that part is for the artist. I’m in it for the music, which is probably why Daft Punk and their way of approaching the industry fascinate me. They’ve been throwing some major hits while still being able to walk the streets unnoticed. Passion before ego I guess.
Where do you go to seek inspiration?
I don’t go anywhere specific. I’m inspired by music in general. If I notice a tune at a café somewhere or in a car passing by, it gets stuck in my mind. All of a sudden ideas and patterns start evolving, and then I try adding layers to it in my studio.
What has gotten you to where you are today?
I guess listening to myself and not giving a fuck has made the way for me. If you wanna go somewhere you must put in work and trust yourself.
Any similarities between your music and the way you dress?
I don't do too many colors, and I try to avoid visible logos. I mainly care about the fit and quality.
Like with my music, I like being a bit off the radar, and I think my way of dressing supports that. It's nice to be able to contribute to this campaign, and while shooting it I wore this light blue jacket, which I use a lot, and now that's one of the few colored items I like to pull off.
