Jazzy launched the Electric Arena in style with an excellently danceable set.
Irish-Jamaican DJ, producer, and singer Jazzy got Electric Picnic 2023 well and truly under way with a groovy set at the Electric Arena.
There was a gravitational pull to the festival’s second biggest stage as thousands flocked to catch a glimpse of the chart topping artist, who has a steady cult-following accompanying her recent admirers
Jazzy reached no.1 in the Irish charts ( as well no.3 in the U.K.) with the mammoth Belters Only collab ‘Make me Feel Good’. Her March single ‘Giving Me' also made her the first Irish woman to chart at No.1 in the country in 14 years.
Snowballing from the momentum of a very successful summer of festival appearances, Jazzy cut her teeth as young musician through uploading her ‘GEWAH’ DJ mixes on Soundcloud. The South Dubliner is also a classically trained violinist.
Unfortunately for fans of Vivaldi, and fortunately for those looking to start their weekend right, Jazzy returned to her Soundcloud roots with a DJ-orientated, allowing festival goers to warm up their dance moves.
Appearing as if from a sci-fi film in her lemony suit and yellow-hued glasses, Jazzy was over her decks in deep concentration- an artist clearly at work.
Effortlessly cool and obviously talented, she nonetheless had somewhat of a pinch me moment as the crowd belted back her lyrics as she covered her mouth in disbelief.
Regaining her cool and removing her headphones to enjoy the spectacle, the chorus of ‘Giving Me’ bounced around the towering tent, as Jazzy deservedly cherished every second of the audience’s energy. Her follow up single 'Feel It' was equally as enjoyed by the packed tent.
It may come to a surprise that Jazzy didn’t showcase her mega vocals, however the rumours wafting around Stradbally Hall reckon that she’ll be joining to join the aforementioned Belters Only later on to let those chart mounting pipes chime.
Whether or not these speculations prove to be true, Jazzy will be performing with the electronic duo for their sold out gig at Dublin’s 3 Arena this winter.
