Over the past 8 years, Christian James has undoubtedly established himself as one of the best DJs on the South coast. With a back catalogue of sets which include the Ministry of Sound, Formula 1 tracks in England and Belgium and some of the biggest clubs in the region, Christian can justifiably claim to have cemented his place at the forefront of the regional music scene.
2012 was a busy year for Christian, holding residencies at Bournemouth’s premier Super Club "V" and playing at the very exclusive venue Priva, whilst other highlights include playing the main stage at the 20,000 capacity Bournemouth Sevens Festival. Guest sets at Dogma in Reading, The Old Firestation and Alika in Bournemouth have also been completed to rave reviews.
A bedroom mash-up of Run DMC ft. Nevis vs Mr Ozio was how it all began back in 2002; his self-educated musical mind had found its starting point. Christian has subsequently perfected his art and possesses a great mic personality and is renowned for his high-tempo, hands-in-the-air style of playing. Based in Bournemouth and with an excellent stage presence, it didn’t take Christian long to spread his sound around the local area under his former stage name - DJ Plank.
After serving his initiation as a mobile DJ to considerable acclaim, Christian was offered his first venue at a popular party sport in the centre of Bournemouth. He held his first residency for more than 5 years which coincided with the 400 capacity venue achieving unprecedented success. Under his stewardship and guided by a passion for entertaining, the venue frequently outperformed larger rivals and rose to prominence as a real party hotspot.
Bigger and better things lay ahead for Christian as he moved on to DJ at some of the South Coast’s coolest parties. With influences ranging from the likes of FatBoy Slim, Bassment Jaxx, and Teisto to Calvin Harris, Armand Van Helden and SHM, 2013 now sees Christian James as one of the top DJs in the South.
Equally at home playing intimate club nights or entertaining big student raves and prestigious festival stages, he is a natural at creating a truly euphoric atmosphere. Christian James is looking for the next big challenge with bigger crowds, louder tunes and epic results.
