East London photography duo Tim & Barry are taking their online channel Just Jam to London’s Barbican next month for a massive multimedia event featuring performances from Syrian superstar Omar Souleyman, dubstep honcho Loefah and MC Chunky, electronic duo Mount Kimbie, footwork producer RP Boo and grime MC (and FACT TV presenter) Big Narstie.
Expanding their green screen studio into the venue’s enormous main hall, the Just Jam team will project bespoke visuals onto a 20-metre screen while acts perform on stage, creating one of their typically bizarre and brilliant shows for the 2,000 people inside the venue as well as the thousands streaming live at home.
SOPHIE, Marfox, JME, Newham Generals, Preditah, Sticky, Chunky, Kurupt FM and footwork dancer Light Bulb are also on the bill for the event, which takes place on March 1. Tickets are available from the Barbican’s website.
Tim & Barry will also lead a week of free creative workshops for young people aged 14 to 22 at Fellows Court in Hackney from February 17 – 21. The workshops will focus on video production, music production (with Swindle), MCing (with Big Narstie) and radio and DJing (with Twin B). Apply here for a chance to participate.
