For the Royal Court, as feature writer and performer: Poet in da Corner.
Born and bred in East London, Jammz started to make a name for himself on London’s radio circuit in 2014, appearing regularly on Rinse FM, Radar Radio, NTS, Mode FM and BBC 1xtra, teaming up with established DJs like Slimzee, Spooky, Bok Bok and Spyro as well as newcomers like Moleskin and Finn. His free EP Hit Then Run became a cult classic: the title track was playlisted on BBC 1Xtra and 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: he’s been booked for Glastonbury, Eskimo Dance, Outlook, Night Slugs and Bestival, has headlined FWD>> and in March 2016 was the support act on Kano’s UK tour. Jammz has been supported heavily by Fader, Noisey, FACT, GQ, Mixmag, SBTV, MTV and more, and featured on the front cover of the Observer Music’s British MCs special.
Jammz’s first release of 2016, Mr. Wait (a collaboration with Trends & Mr. Dubz) was featured on Channel 4 and picked as one of Sleaford Mods’ favourite tracks. He followed that with the acclaimed Underdog Season Vol. 1 mixtape (with Jack Dat), a self-released instrumental 12” (which sold out in four days) and a collaboration with Dread D on Local Action, 10 Missed Calls. 2017 saw the release of the DJ Q produced Who’s that girl? featuring Aleisha Lee, which received constant airplay across mainstream stations including BBC Radio 1Xtra, Rinse FM and more. Jammz dropped Get What I Mean? through Annie Mac’s Free Music Mondays and has EPs on I Am Grime and Local Action.
