Jammer is a talent who has been a real driving force in the grime scene since day one, spreading positive messages, building connections between people and a rare advocate of peace in a genre fueled often by fire.
In his time he has worked with the grime scene in its entirety, The Streets, Basement Jaxx, Chase & Status, and alongside his Boy Better Know co-d’s, he’s a star of both the underground and international music scene.
Having started out producing in the now infamous basement (commonly known as The Dungeon) of his family home, and it’s now much mythologised in grime history thanks to Lord Of The Mics. So is the 187 Crew he formed with friends D Double E and Hyper, who hosted a legendary pirate radio show on Deja Vu and helped launches the careers of the likes of Dizzee, whilst Jammer has also acted as a label honcho; Kano ‘Boyz Luv Girlz’ was released initially via his Jahmek The World label before being picked up by 679 Recordings.
In the early 00’s he produced seminal grime classics that sonically challenged the norm – then and now. Tracks including ‘Feedback’, ‘Birds In The Sky’, ‘Lyrical Combat’ and ‘Destruction’ paved the way for lyrical escapades into new territory. Building his repertoire, other tracks of Jammers have also come out on the legendary Locked On label while his album Jahmanji was signed to Big Dada Records.
Unleashing his Murkle Man moniker in 2005, Jammer went on to become the superhero that could set fire to any dance. Having simultaneously pushed the scene through his Lord Of The Mics brand, currently enjoying its 10 year anniversary, some of the most notable battles have been witnessed via the seven installments; Wiley v Kano, Skepta v Devilman, Tinchy Stryder v Ears.
As well as being a slick studio talent and a rapper and MC with real flow, Jammer is also a long time DJ who knows how to join the dots between urban sounds and really getting floors moving. He has done so since he was a teenager, learning the ropes from his father who ran a sound system, and is now a regular at the decks of the best clubs around.
