Jammz came up studying grime, and now finds himself at the forefront of it.
Born and bred in East London, Jammz started to make a name for himself on London’s radio circuit in 2014 and 2015, appearing regularly on radio stations like Rinse FM, Radar Radio, NTS, Mode FM and BBC 1xtra and working with established DJs like Slimzee, Spooky, Bok Bok and Spyro. His free Hit Then Run EP quickly became a cult classic: the title track was playlisted on BBC 1Xtra and was voted Noisey’s #3 grime track of 2015, and the remix was Sian Anderson’s #1 remix of the week six weeks on the spin.
Subsequent singles ‘Final Warning’ and ‘London Living’ further established Jammz as one of grime’s best new hit-makers, while his live reputation is also quickly on the rise: as well as being booked for festivals such as Glastonbury, Eskimo Dance, Outlook and Bestival, in March 2016 he was the support act on Kano’s Made in the Manor tour of the UK, and played a sold-out London headline show in December 2016.
Jammz has been supported heavily by Fader, Noisey, FACT, Mixmag, SBTV, MTV and more, and featured on the front cover of the Observer Music’s British MCs special alongside Krept, Konan, Stormzy and Little Sims.
In summer 2016, he played a key role in Ewan Spencer’s documentary for GQ, The Business of Grime. Jammz’s latest EP Warrior, released in November 2016, marks his most developed work yet, tackling the complexities of modern Britain to acclaim from Noisey, i-D, Fader, FACT, Complex and more.
