Who is Xander James..?
| www.XanderJamesDJ.com |

Close friends & peers have described him as the human bible of dance music, a musical dictionary, a maven, a music connoisseur…

Driven by his love & passion for music – an obsession for timeless melodies – James emphasizes on setting the record straight & delivering quality dance tracks to the masses, whilst finding the balance of remaining relevant to our times.

Music has been a major part of Xander’s life since his childhood years..! A much-loved hobby, which eventually became a passionate dedication for the art-form itself – even in the early days when he simply used to make mixtapes on his stereo cassette player, for friends…

Later on – during the mid 90s – he takes up piano lessons, study’s classical music theory & by the age of 15 he gets into dj’ing.

During his humble beginnings, Xander James is involved with lunchtime radio at his high-school campus, end-of-term school parties and underage discos in his local area…

Whilst starting to gain the respect of many friends – as a bit of a music guru and crowd-pleaser – he begins to dj, by popular demand at various private parties and one-off events.

A few years later he ventures on to local community radio, hosting his very own weekly show & then starts playing at various nightclubs & venues around his hometown of Melbourne…

In 2005 – whilst on summer holidays in sun-drenched Greece – Xander is invited to perform at a number of nightspots around the country including Planitarion nightclub.

Since 2007 Xander has performed & worked along the likes of well-reputed & respected international artists – within the field – including: Ron Carroll, Julie McKnight, Marshall Jefferson, Clemy Rilley, Andy Caldwell, Groove Junkies, Robert Owens, Chris Samba, Andy Ward from Soul Central, Graham Lord from Audiowhores, Neil Pierce from Fanatix, Sean Doyle from Soul Heaven and many more – personally acknowledging this, as the highlight of his career thus far..!

“Music is life – an expression of feelings & emotions… Beautiful music brings love, joy & happiness… I love music – it’s my life… I live for music and I play so people can dance & have fun”.

2010 marks the beginning of a new chapter, as he now sets off to launch his music career, as a fulltime professional artist… Mentored by longtime friend Marcus Knight, Xander embarks on a new journey & by putting his skills to the test a true performer is born…

Dedicating his style to uplifting dance music, Xander’s inspiration comes from a vast range of musical genres… From big-room to funky, soulful, upfront house sounds with big vocals, deep house rhythms, afro-latin influences, tech grooves & urban melodies, elements of soul-infused hip-hop, r’n’b & Motown classics.

With the ability to be versatile and adapt to different styles, always striving to captivate the audience, when Xander James performs he delivers a unique blend of dance music, aiming to take you on a journey…

His technique during sets is upmost creative and his ability to play tracks, which move the dancefloor is second to none..! Behind the decks, he emerges mixing seamlessly, cutting and scratching – while dancing away and hyping the crowd.

Xander’s knowledge & taste for dance music is flawless & after many requests by fans & peers alike, he now also takes on reviewing quality dance tracks & presenting industry news via his weekly blog – The Xander James Theory – along with regular promotional dj-mixes, serving friends & music lovers worldwide..!

Constantly on the go – over the past couple of years – with regular gigs & weekly residencies – representing the Generation Entertainment Group – in his hometown of Melbourne, 2013 finds Xander James also keeping busy in the studio, making his first steps into full-scale music production…

His remix for “Energy [Deep My Soul]” – a collaboration between U.S. vocalist Kim Jay & French dj/producer Malik Boudari – released earlier in the year through Jerry C. King’s Chicago-based record label Kingdom Music, reached #30 on the Stompy.com ‘Soul Full’ chart… Xander’s latest release & very first original “The Bounce” – a brilliant deep house tune with solid groove & a fat bouncy bassline – is out now through Generation Entertainment.

“Indulge yourself in music… Be a part of the evolution – & stay tuned for more exciting new adventures – 1 luv, peace & music-beats” ~ Xander James d(•_•)b
