Just Jam Reloaded

FT KAMAAL WILLIAMS, BELLY SQUAD, NAIRA MARLEY,
NÍDIA, MEZ, GRANDMIXXER AND YGG. LOTS MORE TBA !!!

Step into Tim & Barry’s audio-visual playground, where visceral lo-fi graphics accompany breakneck MCs, cascades of sax and heavy basslines. Welcome to Just Jam Reloaded.

It’s an expo of their discoveries from their adventures through the British musical underground. It’s the sound of the blurred edges where genres meet – KAMAAL WILLIAMS (ex-Yussef Kamaal); presents a sound embracing Soul and Jazz but equally influenced by Grime, Garage and Brokenbeat, the Afrobeats-tinged Rap of BELLY SQUAD and NAIRA MARLEY, kuduro-influenced Portuguese producer NÍDIA; and, of course, some of the most exciting artists in Grime, including MEZ, GRANDMIXXER and YGG.

For 15 years, Tim & Barry have been right at the forefront of the Grime scene. Originally photographers, they became the first to document these burgeoning underground sounds. They went on to launch Just Jam, pairing live performance with live graphic manipulation in their off-kilter visual style – think swirling psychedelic shapes, dodgy rave graphics and Looney Tunes clips. Tonight, roaming cameras and mobile green screens will recreate Just Jam’s distinctive atmosphere on a massive scale.
