When you know, you know: love will have its way.

Jordan Mackampa is a singer based in London who combines his Congolese roots and midlands upbringing into an infectious blend of funk and soul. His retrospective and wistful sound is inspired by his mother’s love of the great soul singers - the voices of Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers and Curtis Mayfield are all alive in the emotive rasp of Mackampa's effortless tenor.

The essence of Mackampa's sound is a reinvention of retro-soul music, through an exploration of the visceral components of his own life. The energy that spills from this track stems from that urgent quarter note, which in turn gives echoes of a gospel witnessing. Under is an ebullient and aggressive emotional entreatment, informed by the unfettered rapture of a complete loss-of-control. When you know, you know: love will have its way.

Jordan Mackampa shares the music video for his new single ‘Under’ which was filmed by OG Studios. This song is featured on our Soul playlist.
