AWIL 257 - Jamie Renton Fri, 2018-04-27 14:22

DJ, journalist, club promoter, and music lover Jamie Renton on this A World in London! 

There’s never a chance to chat with Jamie Renton given his super busy schedule and the fact that usually one of us has headphones on, so we decided to meet at AWIL instead! Jamie first hit the decks for an article he was writing about world music DJs like Charlie Gillett, Andy Kershaw & Dave Hucker, but ended up catching the turntablist bug and has been spinning records ever since! He set up his first monthly event – Chilli Fried – at Darbuka in Farringdon, showcasing live bands and global grooves, and has gone on to promote some memorable one-nighters and seminal clubs. As a writer, Jamie is one of the most empathic music critics you’ll ever read, adding wit, warmth, and positivity to every review & interview. Find him in fRoots Magazine, and, at Balabam with his new monthly venture which begins on May 19th featuring live sets by Geoff Berner, Jeremy Hardy, and the Kosher Nostra DJs – Jamie Renton, and AWIL’s Norman Druker!
