Jazzie B

Work It at the Kopparberg Urban Forest


Saturday

Although Jazzie B and Soul II Soul will always be connected, both spiritually and substantially, that has never been all Jazzie has been about. For years now, he has built a parallel career away from the collective, one that allows Jazzie to advance his own ideas and character. Among his more eclectic achievements as Jazzie B, he has been a regular on London radio since Kiss FM was a pirate – he is currently on Solar Radio, Sundays 2-4 pm and also does a variety of voice-overs for radio and television.

Jazzie has been honoured for his services to the community as well as his music. In 2008, Jazzie became the first UK sound man to be invited to a Buckingham Palace investiture, when he was awarded an OBE for services to music, by Her Majesty the Queen. In the same year, he was awarded the inaugural Ivor Novello Award for inspiration; when it was presented to Jazzie, the announcer described him as “the man who gave British black music a soul of its own”.

Join the legendary Jazzie B for some summery beats at Lovebox.
