WHAT IT IS: Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Jax Jones returns with brand new single “You Don’t Know Me,” featuring vocals from BBC Sound of 2017 nominee Raye. It follows the infectious previous single and summer club hit, “House Work.” The artist takes his inspiration from the hip-hop, grime and house music that he was surrounded by in his teenage years. At 16, he was thrown out of the family home and started making grime on an old PC in his friend’s garage, where he lived at the time. These influences come through both in the studio and in his incendiary live sets, in which he helms all the instruments himself, layering them over beats and bass for a fresh, modern take on an old-school sound. Previously, his biggest success had been as the writer and co-producer on Duke Dumont’s huge international 2014 hit, “I Got U,” which resulted in his first U.K. #1, in addition to nominations on both sides of the Atlantic, at the BRIT and Grammy Awards.
