They Say Jump

Singer — South East London

Name
Adrian Benn

Where are you from?
South East London


What do you do?
I'm the Singer in the Ska/Reggae/Dub band They Say Jump
.

Describe your style in three words?
Just do you
.

How should your music be listened to?
With a crowd of people, all prepared to jump and skank till the early hours.


What do you miss about home when you're on tour?
My family and my favourite spot on the sofa... Got the butt groove just the way I like it.

What British music icons inspire your sound today?
The Specials, The Beat, Roots Manuva, The Selecter, Roni Size, Goldie... This could be a long list so maybe I'll stop there.


They Say Jump are a David Rodigan approved London-based Ska/Reggae outfit who take musical cues from the likes of The Specials, Bob Marley & The Police. Their latest EP 'Lift Your Mood' was released in August 2016 and is available on Spotify/iTunes.

What was the first song you played on repeat?
I grew up listening to my Mum and Dad's Soca tapes and vinyl... 'Dollar Wine' by Byron Lee and The Dragonaires was the one! I must have been about 5 or 6 when I first heard this track (and learnt the dance) this tune will still get a reload when I hear it.

A song from your favourite album?
Roni Size's Reprazent is still one of the greatest albums and 'Brown Paper Bag' is an absolute banger.

Song you wish you had written?
'Sober' by Childish Gambino - discovered Childish after a friend gave me one of his free mix tapes... His flow and creativity is on point.

The Song with your favourite lyrics?
'Rappers Delight' by The Sugarhill Gang - I learnt the rap in my youth and I've never forgotten it.
