Selections: Jamz Supernova
Welcome back to Selections, a series of exclusive artist-curated Spotify playlists from those in the know.
Our latest is supplied by Jamz Supernova: a Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJ, and boss of the label Future Bounce. In hardly any time at all the London selector has become almost synonymous with new strains of R&B, drawing on UK funky, Afrobeat and soca – particularly for her 1Xtra, where she holds down three shows per week. This playlist, which she’s named the “Future Bounce playlist”, draws on all of these sounds, as well as garage and some woozier experimental electronics. Frankly, it bangs all the way through.
Speaking about what the concept means to her, she says, “Future Bounce is an umbrella for all of my musical loves! The soulful vibes I love to play on the radio, the UK funky and global sounds I play in my DJ sets to the leftfield electronic productions that perk my ears up! [I also] wanted to introduce you to some of the dope artists I’ve signed to my label!”
This roster of artists includes Swsh, Melle Brown and Joe Turner. Dial in for some of the freshest sounds around.
Jamz Supernova plays Love Saves the Day, Bristol, on 25 May
