about

AMJ, trio of drummer Andy Clarke, bassist Mark Spence and producer John Hollis create music with a collective of invited musicians, from Cuban trumpeter Michel Padron to Welsh guitarist Owen Shiers. They have an almighty groove and their musical journey takes them to places they never imagined when they first set out.

A new release continues to showcase the dynamic future-roots sound of AMJ.

“Whenever I see the name AMJ Collective I know I’m going to be in for something special, something different, something unique.”
DAVID RODIGAN MBE BBC 1XTRA

“Un art de dub mix époustouflant!” … “The art of the breathtaking dub mix!" FREDERIC PEGUILLAN TELERAMA

Following up on their Sky Blue Love album, the AMJ Collective now deliver an eight track set called Believe. Rob Smith-RSD is at the controls once again delivering a masterful dub-scape.

The album features the granddaughters of legendary Colombian artist Totó la Momposina on vocals - Oriana Melissa delivers a soulful lead on the song Believe, recorded when she was just eighteen years old.
