Hidden Agenda and Palisade team up to bring you the brand new live show from Night Slugs leftfield R’n’B artist Jam City for a very, very special intimate debut live tour show in Whelans, Upstairs on Saturday May 16th. Having established himself as one of the leading players in the electronic music scene, he has pushed his boundaries and graduated onto a fully formed live project. This show is sure to be really special and a chance to see Jam City in a unique setting that probably won’t ever happen again!
Since 2010, Jack Latham has released forward thinking, sound system-ready music under the alias Jam City. After a string of EPs, his highly influential debut album Classical Curves was released via Night Slugs to critical acclaim in 2012, and was quickly followed by Club Constructions Vol 6. In addition to this, his work on Kelela’s seminal breakout mixtape Cut 4 Me showcased a subtle, spacious and deftly emotional side to his writing and production.
With the lead single Unhappy, Jam weds this approach to songwriting to the industrial drums, howling synthesiser leads and 21st century anxiety that have since become his trademark. It is the first single to be taken from his upcoming sophomore album, to be released on Night Slugs in early 2015.
In October 2014 Jam City performed his debut live set at Krakow’s esteemed Unsound Festival, marrying the textures and frequencies of his long DJ career with brand-new album material that moved towards a psychedelic, gothic, funk music that is as chaotic as it is sincere.
