Casting a mere 5'5 shadow, James makes up for his gravity challenge, with gigantic passion and commitment to his craft! During a period in electronic music in which every second person is a DJ or producer his passion for good music and eclectic sound sets him apart from the herd.
Born in Bringelly and raised on a farm, James grew up on a diet of classic rock, disco and funk and these early influences permeate his style. Far more concerned with the quality of a tune and its ability to elicit a reaction in the listener than its genre or what record label it’s on James’ music is a forward thinking blend of throbbing bass-lines, groovy drums and tweaked vocals all designed to get the sweat dripping off the walls.
Like many modern day artists his love affair with electronic music started on the other side of the turntables. He fell in love with house music in the late nineties and hasn’t looked back. A true music lover if he isn’t in the studio or behind the decks he is probably losing it on a dance floor somewhere.
As a DJ, James has played all over the Sydney scene at events such as Spice, S.A.S.H., The Likes of You, Bare Essentials, Kontrast, Golden Cage, La Famiglia, and The Church of Techno. He has also supported international artists such as Inxec, Steve Lawler, Oliver Koletzki, DJ Hell, Marlon Hoffstadt, Yousef, DJ PP, Octave One, Kevin Griffiths, Agoria, and Guti. He is also well known for throwing his notorious roof top and illegal beach parties under the Kinky Disco moniker.
In 2012, his break out EP "Toni's Pain" on Beef Records in collaboration with Sydney artist Jaded, was supported by some of the biggest names in the business, and all three remixes charted into the top 30 in Beatport's Deep House Chart.
Since then James has been busy establishing his business, and In March 2013 he launched his label "Trojan House Records", which has released over forty digital tracks, and their debut vinyl 12" release.
2014 is already a very busy year for James, especially in the studio as he refines his sound, and also as he continues the drive the success of his new label. James' first track on his imprint is a remix for Patrick Daniels - "I Need You" EP, which will be invading crates June 18.
