Just Jam logo

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 in the musical underground. It’s the sound of the blurred edges where genres meet there's the Afrobeats-tinged Rap of Belly Squad, kuduro-influenced producer Nídia; & some of the most exciting names in Grime, including MezGrandmixxer & YGG. We also welcome the UK’s answer to DJ Khaled - Kenny Allstar, Road Rap duo Skengdo x AM, Bashment beatsmith Murlo. Also performing are Brummy OG Devilman, Afrobeats selectors Afro B & Mad J, House of Pharoahs's Sam Wise & DJ Funkz. Completing the line-up is Novelist, who appeared at the first Barbican Just Jam in 2014.

For 15 years, Tim & Barry have been at the fore of the Grime scene. Originally photographers, they went on to launch Just Jam. Tonight, roaming cameras & mobile green screens will recreate Just Jam’s distinctive vibe on a huge scale.
