Bio

In just a few months since inception, electronic enigma JAMATAR has performed sold out shows in London, penned a UK record deal, and has appeared on festival lineups at NYE on the Hill, The Hills are Alive, Square Sounds and Pixel Sounds.

JAMATAR will be releasing a new single 'Bridges' on Feb 15th 2018!

Following the release of ‘Journeys’ in November 2016, JAMATAR collaborated with long-time friend and Press Club singer Natalie Foster to create a dreamy Gameboy sensation titled ‘Reflect’. Written over the space of two songwriting sessions (in which Natalie literally ran across Brunswick to JAMATAR’s house, dog in tow), the track was inspired by an animation by Alice Carroll which depicted a girl lost in space. With the narrator having an overwhelming sense of despair and fear when her reflection leaves her, she discovers her strength and potential for greatness as she overcomes her own self doubt and negative perceptions.

‘Journeys’ scored high praise from chiptunes and broader EDM reviewers alike for creating an uplifting musical experience that both celebrates and transcends the classic 8-bit genre. Wielding ambient-come-pounding electro beats combined with an impressive visual show, JAMATAR’s live performance is already amounting a fast reputation for one hell of a party and his future shows are not to be missed.
