Jax Jones - House Work Tour: Glasgow on Friday 19th May 2017
JAX JONES - HOUSE WORK TOUR
FEATURING: JAX JONES + SUPPORT
SWG3 are proud to present the man behind the smash hit 'You Don't Know Me' (feat. RAYE) as he takes on his first UK tour. Jax Jones will be playing SWG3 on Friday 19th May as part of his House Work Tour and we can't wait. Early bird tickets are only £13 + BF and on sale now from Skiddle.
Live beat-maker and multi-instrumentalist Jax Jones is, at his roots, a solo act. Growing up in a multi-ethnic household, Jax was exposed to a wealth of influences. After his Nigerian stepfather introduced him to afrobeat via Fela Kuti and rap with a tape of the Biggie Smalls album, Jax’s musical diet developed to consist of Hip Hop, R&B, Gospel and traditional African music.
His latest single “You Don’t Know Me”, reached #3 in the UK Singles Chart and was a club smash. Jax says of the track, “The vocal was inspired by a lot of bashment and general bravado. I spent the next day writing and experimenting with different basslines which were good but not quite doing it. I’ve always been obsessed with the Booka Shade and MANDY Body Language track - its been a staple in my DJ sets - so I tried it and it was lit. We approached them and I was honoured when they gave me approval to use their notes. Bringing their classic techno sound to our new house setting is a total joy for me as I always want to show the audience today who the teachers of the music who inspired me are.”
£13 + BF (Limited number early birds)
