About Us

JPM Recordings (Just Play Music) is a British, London based independent Music Production, Artist Development and Record Label founded in 2005 by music producer, Ransford Roy-Macaulay (aka Darkjoint). Not confined to a specific genre, the program of JPM Recordings varies from Hiphop, RnB, Soul, Pop, Electronic Synthwave, Dance, Afrobeat, Reggae, Dub and Bass music to sometimes improvised darker experimental sounds, Ambient and Electronica.

The label was created as a vehicle for Darkjoint to release unsigned projects that he could develop while working in partnership with more established labels to promote, market and distribute these projects. The very first partnership to be developed and released was the single entitled 'Life', by the award-winning artist, Serocee in 2006 which was a true collaborative effort between JPM Recordings and Ill Flava Records, headed by the legendary UK Hip Hop rapper, Karl Hinds.

The success of 'Life' gave JPM Recordings a foundation to build on and has thus developed and released music by Emanuel thesinger of Starlight Crew and several other artists. During the past decade JPM has grown from a simple idea to a team of various writers, producers, sound engineers who have completed works for Channel 4 (Hip Hop Nights), Channel U (Miss U Babes), No Bling TV and various other media organisations.

In 2015, JPM Recordings teamed up with Office Girls management team, Ellis Rich and Marvin Howell to develop, write and produce tracks for their latest girl band 'The Office Girls', which resulted in a hit single 'Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is', produced and co-written by our very own Darkjoint.
