Jammer – Ian Wright

Grime and Football collide as Jammer releases brand new record ‘Ian Wright’

When Lord of the Mics, Jammer, was recently pushed over on stage in a shock incident at Wiley’s long-standing event Eskimo Dance, claims quickly started to arise that it was none other than Premiership football legend Ian Wright that was the culprit.

The claims lead to a social media frenzy with speculation as to why Ian Wright would have been so angered by Jammer and why he was even in attendance at a grime event in the first place? With confused fans of both parties calling for answers to the many questions that were on everyone’s lips, Ian Wright took to his own Instagram to respond to the whole situation, snowballing the entire scenario in to national news and setting off a wave of hilarious memes (that included Jammer moonwalking), made the story trend across social media over the following days.

Although born from a negative incident that would be pretty difficult for any artist to recover from in the middle of their set, Jammer has been quick to show that there is no place for any bad vibes and has flipped the situation in to a pretty epic outcome that only he could do. Naturally pulling in one of the worlds biggest football legends and also a production courtesy of the huge Australian producer ‘What So Not’, who has previously worked with Flume, RL Grime, Dillon Francis and Skrillex, ‘Ian Wright’ is born as an electronic grime masterpiece doused in wonky baseline and topped with Jammers lyrical skill and wit.

Known for his humour and creative genius to his hundreds of thousands of followers, Jammer is one of the foundational lynchpins of the grime scene. Part of Boy Better Know alongside Skepta and also director of seminal brand Lord of the Mics, Jammer gets it in the back of the net as ‘Ian Wright’ scores with football and music fans, plus anyone that enjoys a bit of top entertainment!
