For Jitwam, his career in music has always felt predestined. The first record he bought – a $2 blank white-label vinyl – turned out to be a Moodymann track, a discovery he made around the same time he found out his music would be featured on Moodymann’s DJ Kicks compilation. Jitwam has become a mainstay of the underground having found success through two LPs, ‘ज़ितम सिहँ’ and Honeycomb alongside highly-acclaimed tracks including ‘WhereYouGonnaGo’ and ‘busstop’, which have landed him guest spots on NTS, WorldWide FM, BBC6 Music and sharing stages withthe likes of Yussef Dayes, Kamaal Williams, Anoushka Shankar, Henry Wu, Ross From Friends amongst others. Cementing himself as a global sector, live performer and label front at The Jazz Diaries, he has also remixed Laraaji, collaborated with Folamour – whose Boiler Room has had nearly a million views – as well as Cosmo’s Midnight on Defected Records, as well as a  feature track on the renowned compilation ‘Fabric Presents… Maribou State’.Incorporating sounds from across the world, Jitwam marries incisive political commentary with deep introspection to create work that is, at once, wrenchingly intimate and sweetly playful.
