Merciful presents JANSET, hype energy rap with London’s toughest live grime soul hip hop band. Already placed at the forefront of the dubstep world in the late 2000s as one half of incendiary duo Stinkahbell, Janset remains a potent force to this day combining her dexterity on the keys with her songwriting and lyrical talent. Straddling a number of styles with ease, connecting the dots between jazz, hip hop, drum’n’bass, dubstep and a range of experimental sounds. Juxtaposes vulnerability with cheeky wordplay and the unmistakable edge that only comes from growing up in London. Diverse, multi-cultural, forward-thinking and, most important, honest and sincere. This is music from the soul of a woman who is about as real as they come and for that reason alone, she is bound to keep on flying high.
