“Penchant for stitching together soul, funk, hip-hop, pop - and his own manipulated vocals - to create dusty, soulful house tracks filled with character”

“Absolute groover”

“Jitwam invokes the bustling attitudes inherent in his sometimes-homes New York and London”

“Overarching, soulful sonic presence”

Purple Sneakers

“An irresistible, blissed-out jazz-funk energy”


“A magnetic journey through a vast array of styles”


‘Poor Man’s Boy’ is out now, buy/ stream it here.

Multi-instrumentalist songwriter, producer, and vocalist Jitwam announces the deluxe edition of his acclaimed album Third, set for release on June 2 via Roya. It features seven bonus tracks, including recent single ‘hollatchu (feat. YUNGMORPHEUS & Jaydonclover)’, alongside four new Jitwam songs, plus remixes from stalwarts of the dancefloor, Kraak & Smaak, and NYC duo musclecars. LISTEN  + PRE-ORDER HERE.

Today, he shares new single ‘poor man’s boy’ – accompanied with a lofi video of the live recording at Nick Herrera’s The Grove Studios in Melbourne, Australia. Jitwam opted for a live recording of the band in the same room to capture the raw essence of the performance and give that high-octane psych-funk a human feel. Giving more context on the track, Jitwam shares: “poor man’s boy is finding peace within the madness. A chaotic funk workout that is both cathartic and a call to arms, striving for a world where we bridge the gap between the rich and poor, ending the class war.”`

This announcement follows a recent Asia tour, which included shows in Japan, China, and Thailand, and will finish with a show in Indonesia on May 5. Followed by a run of shows in the UK and his first headline tour in North America throughout June.

Jitwam also made his COLORS debut at the top of the year, performing the stripped back ‘roots’, and now fans get to hear the full studio version on the deluxe edition of Third – graceful honesty, embellished with melodic strings that makes for a very memorable song. Third originally picked up coverage from NME, The Guardian, NPR, Mixmag, DJ Mag, radio playlisting on BBC 6 Music, Double J, triple j Mix Up, spins on BBC Radio 1, KCRW, KEXP, as well as sold-out shows in London and Melbourne.

Jitwam’s music skips across genres nimbly with influences from house music, r&b, soul, punk, and disco. Hailing from Assam in northeast India, the self-proclaimed “psychedelic soul savant” has steadily carved out his own lane and cemented himself as a global sector and live performer and label front at The Jazz Diaries, as well as being involved with the South Asian underground via Chalo and Dialled In Festival.
