Jahmanji
by Jammer

— Released 5th July 2010 on Big Dada

Where do you start with 'Jahmanji'!? The album that Jahmek Power aka Jammer has waited the best part of a decade to make, its thirteen tracks in forty five minutes cover just about everything that’s best in contemporary Black British music, while throwing in a few shapes and ideas that you won’t come across anywhere else. This producer and MC has recruited some of the brightest and most recognisable names from the scene he helped to create and then molded their contributions so that the a...

Where do you start with 'Jahmanji'!? The album that Jahmek Power aka Jammer has waited the best part of a decade to make, its thirteen tracks in forty five minutes cover just about everything that’s best in contemporary Black British music, while throwing in a few shapes and ideas that you won’t come across anywhere else. This producer and MC has recruited some of the brightest and most recognisable names from the scene he helped to create and then molded their contributions so that the album is clearly the work of one man’s vision.

So there are vocal contributions here from Skepta, JME and Frisco (the Boy Better Know legends turning up on '10 Man Roll'), Newham Generals ('Bad Mind People') and Jammin and Hainsy ('One 4 Me'), plus two standout chorus performances from his cousin Camalot (himself a member of BBK), a superb reggae vocal from Lickle J and more soulful contributions from Kivanch and the now very sadly deceased Shiv Lizzy. Meanwhile, production assistance has come from Toddla T (who as well as producing 'Party Animal' co-produced the club banger 'Back To The ‘90s'), Rapid ('Better Than…'), Mumdance ('10 Man Roll’) and Redlight ('Get It In'). Meanwhile, Jammer showcases a new polyrhymthmic depth to grime on his own productions like 'Murkle Mode' and 'Walking Duppy'.

Jahmek Power aka Jammer is one of the true pioneers of the grime scene. A builder of bridges and peacemaker rather than a loose cannon, Jammer is one of the few people in London who can count both Dizzee Rascal and Wiley amongst his friends and who has worked with Kano, Tinchy, Chipmunk and just about everyone else, underground and overground. And if none of them have a bad word to say about him, that’s because, at heart, Jammer believes more in music than he does in ego. Now, at last, he has the chance to prove it with a uniquely varied, hard-edged, uncompromising set.
