Festival season is well and truly in full swing, and one of the rising stars on the summer scene is FOMO. In just two years the Brisbane-only event has expanded to include Sydney and Adelaide, as well as heaping on the big name international acts, one of which is grime lord JME. A legend in his own right, JME, or Jamie Adenuga, has been extremely influential in putting grime on the map. As well as releasing his own music – his last album was 2015’s Integrity>, JME is co-founder of grime label Boy Better Know, alongside his brother Joseph Adenuga, best known as Skepta.
While in town for FOMO Festival, JME stopped in Melbourne for his one and only headline sideshow at the Corner Hotel on Tuesday, January 3. We were lucky enough to head along to catch his electrifying live show in person.
