Just Jam Reloaded

Saturday 17 March 2018 / Barbican Hall / 19:30

Tickets £15 plus booking fee

 

Just Jam returns to the Barbican on 17 March 2018 for another edition of the event that unites underground music and experiments in live video. The night will feature a cast of afrobeats, grime, electronic, rap and further talents showcasing some of the most vital sounds from the UK and beyond.

 

Stepping up to the stage for this performance are Kamaal Williams - keyboardist and producer formerly of South London duo Yussef Kamaal, Nottingham grime MC and NTS regular Mez, and kuduro-influenced Portuguese producer Nídia. Further artists to appear include Belly Squad - the young three-piece blending afrobeats and dancehall with UK street sounds and DJ Grandmixxer. Also featured within the line-up are emerging Nigerian-born, South London-raised rapper Naira Marley often cited as paving the way for artists such as J Hus & Mostack, and trio YGG (aka You Get Grime) formed of the MCs Saint, PK and Lyrical Strally. More performers will be announced in the coming weeks.

 

As per all Just Jam happenings, each set will be accompanied by multimedia elements and live streamed via dontwatchthat.tv.

 

Just Jam’s previous Barbican event in December 2014 featured JME, Big Narstie, Skepta, Omar Souleyman and more.
