Jam’s marks the 51beats’ 10 years anniversary with a touching piano-based ambient release of unique deepness and melancholy. In 2010, during the first quite exceptional participation of 51beats to the Qwartz Electronic Music Awards in Paris, we got in contact with Jam’s, which later released his debut-album “Homeless Soul” with us. It is an immense pleasure to host Jam’s again on 51beats to celebrate our first 10 years. Sit down, relax and enjoy.

Exclusive document celebrating the 10 years of 51beats!
Jonathan R. was born in the south of France in 1984 in a family of painters, and this soon gave him a special taste for the art and the creation. Thanks to his first computer, Jonathan explored his artistic road: self-taught, he is interested in software allowing to transcribe emotions into sounds and compositions. In 1998, Jonathan creates his ephemeral name “Jam’s” …. an electronic music project with the aim of translating soul into compositions. Interior landscapes, joys, sorrows, desires, revolts, thoughts, and future, are all ingredients of the Jam’s works. As Jam’s says: “No matter what you do, the purpose in life it is to create”
Son of Marketing “We introduced different times releases from 51beats. The indipendent label was born in 2008 having the mission to promote high quality, innovative, and emotional electronic music without distinctions among genres. They celebrate their 10th birthday with a new release from Jam’s. Le Temps d’un Rêve is out on March 1st.We have the pleasure to premiere the track “Existence”.“
Rockerilla (n.450, Feb 2018) “La netlabel milanese abbandona il beat e cambia registro immergendosi in atmosfere ambient e neo-classiche con il dovuto tocco chill. Jam’s era già apparso su 51beats nel qualche anno addietro, a marzo torna con un lavoro più completo ed intenso, adatto a festeggiare il decimo compleanno di una netlabel oramai rimasta tra le ‘storiche’ in un panorama Creative italiano in continua evoluzione. Una release che strizza l’occhio al suono di facile fruizione con un pianoforte usato come contrappunto per un’elegante tessitura di suoni elettronicamente avvolgenti. A volte basta premere il tasto repeat per rivivere all’infinito l’istante di un SOGNO.”
