Jazzie B has been a regular on London radio’s since Kiss FM was a pirate. He has had a spell running Motown in the UK, designed a sneaker for the Lacoste Legends range and presented James Brown with the Diesel U Music Lifetime Achievement Award, an honour the late Mr Brown would accept in person on the one condition that it was Jazzie who presented it to him.
Jazzie’s production and remixing skills have benefitted a procession of artists such as Teena Marie, Cheryl Lynn and The Jones Girls; and co-produced Maxi Priest and The Chimes. He has remixed for, among others, Public Enemy (So Whatcha Gonna Do) Johnny Gill (Wrap My Body Tight); Fine Young Cannibals (I’m Not The Man I Used To Be); Incognito (Change); and, perhaps most memorably, Family Stand’s international smash hit Ghetto Heaven.
Jazzie has also put together some of the greatest club classics collections of recent years, drawing on his sets from the legendary Africa Centre parties and other dances from back in the day. Along with performing at Lovebox Festival, the Southport Weekender, the Baltic Festivaland and the Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash.
