Biography

Language: English

Born in Australia, James England started playing the drums when he was 13. Later picking up the bass, guitar and keyboards, he played in many metal, nu metal and electro industrial bands in which he was also lead vocalist. Having a general grasp of all things musical, at 16 James also began DJing and producing. He now spins under the names of James England, James Compressor and Esion — in addition to his live Compressor act — and can be found almost every weekend behind the decks somewhere in the world doing his part to smash it up. ………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Over the years the Compressor project has created a unique sound encompassing all full power elements of trance, as well as incorporating influences from various other music styles, including drum and bass, electro, hip hop, and industrial. Indeed, the Compressor sound is a mixture of all modern electronic genres with original funky, pumping bass lines and toe-stomping energy. Having built a solid name as a DJ coming up from the London underground, Compressor is now considered one of the most up and coming psy trance acts around. …………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Under the Compressor name, James has had several releases on Transient (UK), EtnicaNet (Italy/Spain), Twenty4Seven recs (Austria) Yellow Sunshine Explosion recordings, including the sell-out Compressor vs Materia ‘Dual Resonance’ five-track CD on Twenty4Seven. Currently involved in side projects with Digital Talk, Marcello VOR and Materia to name a few, James is also working on the first Compressor album to be released some time in 2009 — and if recent dancefloor anthems ‘Ratio Dividers’, ‘Violeria’ and ‘Relativity’ are anything to go by, it’s going to knock the psy trance scene sideways.
