No one can read the room and work the crowd quite like Polar Bears Can Dance, flipping from 50's rock and roll to drum and bass, then slipping in some 80s soul and disco before dropping some 90s hiphop, modern dance, afrobeat and everything else in between, he always creates a fun party vibe.
As a producer he's on a mission to create fun, catchy pop tunes and described as "Contagiously danceable pop with hot summer vibes!” - Indie Pop-Ups, “Very fresh and danceable music, wonderful pop” - AOWleblog and, “Super cute branding and summer-inspired beats.” - SalaciousSound.
Jimmy has written and produced original tracks with artists such as Greg Blackman, Lauren Francis and Craig Webb while also remixing the likes of Mozambo, Half an Orange, By The Rivers, Kyekyeku and Namvula.
