Jazzie B

Jazzie B appearing at this event

DJ, music producer, entrepreneur and a founding member of Soul II Soul. 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 he has built a parallel career away from the collective, one that allows him 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, and also does a variety of voice-overs for radio and television. He has had a spell running Motown in the UK, designed a sneaker for the Lacoste Legends range and presented James Brown with the Diesel U Music Lifetime Achievement award – an honour the late Mr Brown would accept in person on the one condition that it was Jazzie who presented it to him!
