Artist, producer and DJ, Jammer, visited Leyton Sixth Form College as part of Waltham Forest’s Grime project. Talking with Godfather of British rap, Rodney P, he explained how he established his music career and worked with other pivotal artists in the genre. He also gave advice to music students about ways into the industry and things to think about as they develop their music.
Jammer had a pivotal role in establishing grime as part of the music scene working with artists such as Dizzee Rascal and helping them find their audiences. He formed the 187 Crew with friends Double E and Hyper, and set up the Jahmek The World label which helped bring him to the attention of artists worldwide.
LSC rapper Kitch performed a set at the event, including his autobiographical track Miracle, and was supported by music from our Diploma in Music Performance and Production students.
