A pioneer, respected DJ, an accomplished producer/remixer, label / A&R manager and radio presenter, Matt Jam Lamont has been an intrinsic part of the UK Dance scene from its very inception.
It was at South London’s The Arches, where the burgeoning underground UK sounds and indeed Matt’s career really took shape with his residency at the legendary Sunday venue.
It was at this seminal Sunday club that he hooked up with fellow DJ Karl ‘Tuff Enuff’ Brown, and together in 1993 they formed the now legendary production/remixing team, Tuff Jam. The duo became the leading figureheads of the UK dance scene during the mid to late 90′s, turning out a slew of classic anthems from ‘Tumblin’ Down’ and entered the charts with TJR’s ‘Just Gets Better’ (Multiply) & Tuff Jam ft, Jaquee Bennett Need Good Love (XL) to top remixes for Kristine Blond, Boyz II Men, Usher, Coolio, En Vogue, Rosie Gaines, Brand New Heavies, Mark Morrison and more.
As an unceasing champion of the British music scene, and indeed of great garage music irrespective of origin, it’s no misnomer to class Matt ‘Jam’ Lamont amongst dance music’s real pioneers.
