Biography

London, United Kingdom

As an in-house engineer for one of London’s top underground studios, and a local favourite on dub DAB stations, Jamies Bea has donned secret disguise and is bringing his unique blend of deep-electronica and indie-pop songwriting to the masses. His first track, the upbeat sizzler ‘tw10’ (named for his favorite postal area in the capitol) has innovation written all over it, from the stylistic sub-throb of the re-taped 909’s and funk guitar, effortlessly melting into roomverb-drenched vocals and sonic squelches of abrupt, abstract bleeps, blips and blops. Then there’s ‘sound off surrey, a ballad-tastic slower groover, combines more of the experimental, surprising production elements into an even catchier, poppier, saxophone-laiden ambient masterpiece. More recently, he put out his take on r&b-meets-alternative-ambience in the shape of ‘dreams’, a full-on glitch-soul sound incorporating live drum sounds, his signature deep-tuned bass and an infection melody, a modern-day cult classic and this years answer to ‘Jasmine’. When asked about his sound, he simply shrubs and, without a pause of though, simply utters, “Not sure, just what I hear, you know, before I make it appear”. Recently, he added an upbeat, ear-piercing, percussive-drenched funk-hop-step blistering banger to his page, entitled ‘right way’, quite ironically on Christmas Eve. Fans felt he was offering them an evening present. Others felt he was merely trolling them.
