Biography

With music in his blood, ambition and a rare talent, this African powerhouse aims to create and forge his own individual style on the heady world of the dance DJ. Right from the start he took the music industry by the horns and has successfully managed to make a name for himself.

Hours of practice and some interesting experiences attempting to stage his own parties gave him an insight into the highs and lows of being a professional DJ.

His first public performance saw him as a guest at Derek ?The Bandits,? (a well known South African Radio personality) Republic party. Slightly raw but eager he left his mark and was offered a residency at one of the original ?All weekend? clubs in Johannesburg called Sunnyside Up.

He is now one of the top resident DJs at South Africa?s longest running and most successful club, ESP.

Identified as having something out of the ordinary, the management of ESP have invested heavily in James and his international career, initiating a DJ exchange with other promoters around the world and so far he has proven his worth to audiences at a number of prestigious clubs and events on the international circuit including countries like Austria, Spain, Poland, the UK and Switzerland!

He took part in the 2006 Zurich street parade as part of the South African representation and showed one million people that the southern hemisphere is a force to be reckoned with.

Experience comes in many forms and James has had the honor of playing alongside some of the biggest names in the dance world. He opened for Armin Van Buuren during a 2006 South African tour and he frequently plays with such major talent as Brian Cross and 4 Strings (international residents @ ESP themselves).

Thoroughly nice and highly approachable, this gentleman of the decks has created a following of faithful fans eager to loose themselves in his musical magic.
