Tuff Jam’s back-catalogue available online for the first time

Pioneering UK garage act Tuff Jam released their historic back-catalogue on digital streaming platforms for the first time last Friday, March 1.

The duo, made up of Karl ‘Tuff Enuff’ Brown and Matt ‘Jam’ Lamont, were active from 1993 until 2000, during which they broadcast on the legendary London radio Kiss 100 and ran their own imprint Unda-Vybe Music.

All this, of course, was while producing a slew of originals, collabs, and remixes with a who’s who of the nineties dance music scene, from acts like CeCe Peniston and En Vogue to Soul II Soul.

Released via BMG and totalling nearly one hundred tracks, Tuff Jam’s seminal oeuvre is going digital at the perfect time as a historical counterpoint to the UK garage revival that is sweeping the underground and even mainstream music industries.
