Here are some words we stole off the internet:
Flashback to the late 80’s/early 90’s and this is where James’ love affair with house began - peaking in 93/94 where every Saturday night involved a mandatory session at Glasgow’s iconic house & techno pantheon Sub Club. However, it wasn’t long before James was distracted by the emergence of other exciting and innovative genres... The next 15 years were spent experimenting in a myriad of styles – concocting an alchemy of sounds resulting in a hazy blur of techno, drum n bass, experimental electronics, improv, avant karaoke, noise and electro-rock! Fast-forward to 2009 and after exhausting countless genres his musical voyage has transported him back to the house temple, rekindling his love for the timeless genre and laying the foundations for his revival in deep house...
His debut track ‘She’s Gone’ – featuring a sample from the classic Bill Withers track ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ – was an instant hit on Soundcloud and received such a high volume of positive feedback it reached No.1 in Soundcloud’s ‘Most Popular Deep House Tracks Of All Time’ chart – not bad for his first deep house track... This didn’t go unnoticed and influential Detroit house label Kolour Recordings snapped up the track immediately and gave him licence to produce tracks for their off-shoot ‘Undertones’. The result was the ‘Honesty EP’, and James hasn’t looked back since...
