James Black started DJing back in 1999 after his love of music began to take part in his social life. He has DJ'd across London (Ministry of Sound / Turnmills / 414 / Union @ Vauxhall / Queen of Hoxton / UCL Socials), Berkshire (House of Bamboo / Back2Love/ Zeus / Mix Bar / Facebar / Dirty Beat Radio), Brighton (Tekbeat / Trickstar Radio / Code South FM / Concorde2/ The Volks/ Divino's Wine Bar/ Bauwow / The Arch/ Hideout / Sticky Mikes Frog Bar), Ibiza (Club Kancela) and Kent (Club Class / River Bar / Cohesion resident / Classic Beats resident) and presents 'Tekbeat' monthly on Brighton based dance station 'Decadance Radio' as well as a periodic Tekbeat podcast s available on Soundcloud, Mixcloud and iTunes.
James' musical love stemmed from mid-90's dance music which lead into the Trance explosion of 1999-2003, since then James has played many styles of music to fit the needs of the venue and his own expression - Funky House, Techno, Trance, Hard House, Psy-Trance and even Heavy Metal, but he has found his home within the realms of Techno and Trance.
James is a resident DJ for London Techno night 'Dark Matter,' which is a night held at Union in Vauxhall, and can be found popping up at events across the country as well as a regular figure in the livestreaming world.
James Black also produces music under 'James Black Presents', with releases on Discover Records, Stick Up Music, Pure Dope Digital, Transportal, D-Day Recordings and D'amor, and has had support from Amber D and Dave Pearce to name a but a few.
