Robert James
From: UK

Robert James is one of a new breed of British artists that are currently re-writing the rulebook for underground house music worldwide. Based in the city of Leeds, the UK's second stronghold of underground house and techno outside of London, Rob first made a name for himself DJing around his hometown and in Ibiza.

His career exploded exponentially over last summer when his debut release ‘Sleep Moods’ was released on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’ Hot Creations label. Since then he’s notched up a Mixmag ‘House Tune of the Month’ with Malibu (also on Hot Creations), which he co-wrote with fellow Yorkshireman Burnski, won support from across the dance music spectrum for his co-remix of Clockwork with Lee Foss and Art Department and caused much amusement (unless you’re Clive Henry) as a part of ‘Pteradactil Disco’.

His sound is completely unique, born from a strong sense of groove and from summers spent on the dance floor at DC10 in Ibiza plus a healthy ambition to turn house music on its head. He effortlessly creates music aimed squarely at the dance floor that is distinct, infectious and appeals as much to the head and the heart as it does the feet. For the last two years Rob has been regular fixture at clubs like The Mint Club and My House in Leeds, the Zoo Project and Space in Ibiza and the Rainbow in Birmingham, but his recent successes in the studio have seen his bookings move into overdrive. Having landed bookings at fabric, Back To Basics, Bedrock, Asylum, Creche, You Are We and the Junk Club in the UK, his international gigs have started to overtake his domestic bookings.

Most notable of these have been the Get Lost and Hot Natured parties in Miami, Rebel Raves in Lisbon and Sonar, Watergate in Berlin, Trouw in Amsterdam, the Hideout Festival in Croatia and Cirque de Bonheur in Paris. These parties and others have seen him play alongside the likes of Damian Lazarus, Carl Cox, Jamie Jones, Layo and Bushwacka, Art Department and most notably warming up for Pete Tong in front of ten thousand people in Sheffield broadcast live on Pete Tong’s Friday night show on Radio One. The Godfather of UK dance music has in fact been so impressed by Rob’s approach to production that, in conjunction with Mixmag, Pete has named Rob as one of the top new producers to watch in 2011.

This resulted in him being featured in Mixmag an unprecedented three months in a row. With a such a strong start to 2011, it will be interesting to see what the rest of the year holds in store for this hugely talented young artist.
