The Murkle Man returns, showing a very different side to his musical character than that displayed on Party Animal. Produced by Rapid (best known for his work with Tinchy Stryder) this bass-heavy, grimey, electronic production is the perfect platform for Jammer to strike back at the itty-bitty, wannabe grime stars who spend their time online giving the metaphorical middle finger to anyone more successful than them. That this is achieved with a fair amount of humour and the use of the occasional outlandish put down ("I'm a Lambo/You're just a Z3") is testament to a recording artist who keeps on striving to make better music rather than looking for an excuse to – metaphorically or otherwise – shank someone.

Press Release :
The Murkle Man returns, showing a very different side to his musical character than that displayed on "Party Animal." Produced by Rapid (best known for his work with Tinchy Stryder) this bass-heavy, grimey, electronic production is the perfect platform for Jammer to strike back at the itty-bitty, wannabe grime stars who spend their time online giving the metaphorical middle finger to anyone more successful than them. That this is achieved with a fair amount of humour and the use of the occasional outlandish put down ("I'm a Lambo/You're just a Z3") is testament to a recording artist who keeps on striving to make better music rather than looking for an excuse to – metaphorically or otherwise – shank someone.

Remixes come from West Coast beatmaster Lorn (part of Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder crew) and Brighton-based d&b duo, The Prototypes. Lorn takes the original and turns it into hard, dustep-influenced hip hop. The Protoypes, meanwhile, first slow down Jammer's vox and then speed them up for an arena-crumbling drum 'n' bass workout.

Jahmek Power aka Jammer is one of the true pioneers of the grime scene. A builder of bridges and peacemaker rather than a loose cannon, Jammer is one of the few people in London who can count both Dizzee Rascal and Wiley amongst his friends and who has worked with Jay Sean, Kano, Tinchy, Chipmunk, Boy Better Know and just about everyone else, underground and overground. And if none of them have a bad word to say about him, that's because, at heart, Jammer believes more in music than he does in ego.

"Better Than..." should be enough to remind people that, contrary to current trends, you don't have to rap about selling drugs and killing folk to be real. All you have to do is let your character shine through.
