Just Jam Reloaded
Now 15 years old, Just Jam is the vibezy brainchild of two ex-photographers and grime scene stalwarts Tim & Barry. Their original mission was to create an event combining off-kilter, lo-fi graphics with live performances from artists that really bring the heat. That they're about to present a big show at the Barbican, no less, tells you all you need to know about how this thing has taken off. With roaming cameras and mobile green screens recreating their distinct visuals, they've invited a load of up-and-coming, genre-crossing artists to perform. That means the broken beat jazz of Kamaal Williams; the bashment beats of Murlo; the Afrobeat rap of Belly Squad and Naira Marley. This is sound and vision combining to create something special - come take a look.
