E192 - Jax Jones: The letter I wrote that changed my lifeexplicit
Jax Jones, known privately as Timucin Lam, is a DJ, songwriter and record producer. He rose to fame in 2014 and since then has sold over 35 million records, with 4 billion streams. For the first time, he opens up to Jake and Damian about how his turbulent childhood, challenging family relationships and immense pressure to succeed from a young age has shaped him: “Music was a way out. It was a way to mean something.” Jax shares the details of his manifesto, which he wrote at a crucial time in his life and what this means for his future. He describes himself as constantly being followed by a ghost, a dark shadow that drives him ruthlessly to achieve any goal. Being in therapy from a young age has led him to great self-reflection and analysis, which allows him to turn his life into valuable lessons for those listening. Jax Jones' single Whistle ft.

In this episode Kieran reveals the difficulties which almost made him quit football before a period of development made him into the professional he is today. He recounts the ways in which different managers were able to help him reach the some of the biggest footballing stages in the world, taking us into the dressing room of the Champions League semi-final which saw Tottenham overturn a 3-0 deficit in the second half.
