The south-London raised DJ embarks on an immersive 6 date tour in March, kicking off in Nottingham’s Rock City and continuing onto major UK venues. Go grab your tickets now! http://gigst.rs/JaxJones
This will be Jax’s first major UK tour since his May announcement of a new music era via an open letter to fans on social media. Following this was the artist’s most prolific project to date in the form of a 4 track EP “Deep Joy”, released on his new record label WUGD, and designed to make people feel a sense of escapism, hope and freedom. Jax’s ambition for WUGD is to honour and empower grassroot talent and is in collaboration with his long-term manager Dan Stacey of Loving Alliance, and Polydor Records. This live tour aims to bring Jax’s most recent creations to life post-pandemic, alongside his established hits, breaking out from the status-quo and delivering fans a more revolutionary experience than ever. Both the tour and Jax’s creation of WUGD represents an extension of Jax’s creative abilities as his multi-genre versatility becomes increasingly evident.
Jax has had a diverse journey into the industry, initially having produced beats for the early 2000’s garage and grime scene uprising, and working with North-West London’s finest, N-Dubz. A standout in the artist’s discography comes in the form of his ‘Snacks’ album, named the best-selling dance album of 2019. Jax’s infectious humour and knack for creative collaborations has resulted in him staying within the ears of UK house, amassing over three million single sales and 4 billion streams. But Jax explained how the last year has forced him to slow down, face past demons and seen him become a father, and this tour represents Jax’s refreshing new chapter in his sonic journey.
Jax on the tour: “Yo my gs’. In 2022 I’m bringing back the Jax Jones live experience to cities all round the UK. We’ve created some amazing memories so far but I’m working even harder to go next level on these shows so we can make more standout nights for us. You can expect all the bangers in ways you’ve never heard, unreleased stuff and of course next level production!!! I can’t wait to see you all there, all I ask is that you bring max energy and posi vibes! Lets go xxx”
With years of experience under his musical belt, having worked with UK legends from a plethora of genres including grime, garage and even indie, Jax’s musical influence is vast, boasting commendable collaborations including Duke Dumont, Raye, Years and Years and MNEK.
