Need a gift for a gifted musician?
My name is James Cannon aka FUTURE PRIMITIVE, I grew up in England going to raves in the early transition between Jungle and Drum & Bass, major players at the time were Kenny Ken, DJ SS, JJ Frost, Brockie, DJ Rap, Mampi Swift and Ray Keith to name just a few. I started DJing in 1997 the time of New Forms and Reach Out, from there I did many underground gigs and house parties.. by this time I was doing my Fine Arts degree in Bournemouth. In 1999 I did work experience in London with Aphrodite and Mickey Finn which was fantastic. I emigrated to New Zealand, Aotearoa in 2003 I continued my Art but limited my music, I was in a different enviroment. I started producing on cubase instead, I did put on a few gigs up in Whangarei which was awesome and lively. I met my partner and i built a house truck and we cruised around the north island from town to town selling our art and wares making tunes,, we then had some children, and bought an old cottage in the majical town of Taumarunui surrounded by bush, near the mountains and great lake. Here we''ve stayed ever since and I've been hard out producing tunes by myself since, and doing my art, I am now doing my degree in Te Toi Whakairo, (Maori Carving) checkout my art at..
