king jammy



7pm — 10.30pm 

One of the last pro­du­cers from the Golden Age, King Jammy began his music­al edu­ca­tion as a dub mas­ter at King Tubby’s record­ing stu­dio, before going on to build his own sound sys­tem.

In the late 1970s Jammy began to release his own pro­duc­tions, includ­ing the debut album from Black Uhuru in 1977. He claimed his roy­al title when he revolu­tion­ised reg­gae with the first 100% digit­al rid­dim, Wayne Smith’s ‘Under Me Sleng Teng’, pro­duced in 1985, which many say forged the path to the mod­ern dance­hall era.

Since then, he’s pro­duced hun­dreds more rid­dims for numer­ous sing­ers on dif­fer­ent labels as well as his own Jammy’s Records, work­ing with the likes of Admir­al Bailey, Admir­al Tibet, Chaka Demus, Frankie Paul, Lieu­ten­ant Stitchie, Pinch­ers and Den­nis Brown.

A large num­ber of his pro­duc­tions are still remixed and played out and have gone on to become clas­sics in reg­gae cul­ture, and he most recently released ‘Water­house Dub’ in sum­mer 2017.

Join us at the Jazz Café for a sweaty sum­mer Sunday dub ses­sion by the genre’s undis­puted mas­ter.
