JAZZIE B

“It’s all about expression…” From his legendary Funki Dred sessions at the Africa Centre to his worldwide chart success with Soul II Soul, Jazzie B is without doubt one of the UK’s most influential figures. By the late 1980s, Jazzie had had become arguably the UK’s best and most influential DJ and producer, crafting a fresh and original sound that defined a generation By 1989, Soul II Soul’s definitive album “Club Classics Vol 1” had put UK urban music on the map set the standard for UK dance music. Throughout almost twenty years in the music industry, Soul II Soul have won countless awards including 2 Grammy’s (Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group and Best R&B Instrumental Performance), 5 American Music Awards and several Gold and Platinum Awards worldwide in recognition of massive record sales. Jazzie was given the keys to seven cities in the US, including LA and New York, and the NAACP has honoured him. There's even a Soul II Soul day in the US. Today, Jazzie B remains true to the spirit of Soul II Soul, spinning soul, funk, hip-hop and garage as a DJ and bringing good vibes to some of the world’s best venues. Above all, Jazzie is interested in playing to people who have a love of music. For the man who considers himself as a "pleasure giver", it's paramount to Jazzie to remain a part of the club scene. "Being a sound system is very important to me, I still DJ in clubs. And the label is run like a sound system. It's all exactly the same as before, except that the times have changed. Technically we are still a sound system. The singers and artists are our MCs, and instead of making mix tapes we now make records and CDs." Jazzie now runs a successful independent label called Soul II Soul Recordings, he has a state-of-the-art studio in London and has plans to build a further studio and holiday cottages on his three and a half acres of land in Antigua. He does voice-overs for radio and television, and 'Keep On Movin'' was used for the high profile Renault Clio television ads. Mary J. Blige recently released a cover version of 'Back To Life'. Jazzie also regularly does a radio show on the in-flight entertainment for Virgin Atlantic. [more]
