2012 WEEK 45 : JAMES POULTON
Focus on a grow up dj's based UK on U.M.E ................
The UK based Trance & Progressive DJ / Producer started out playing and writing classically, turning to dance music after a visit to the 'Homelands' festival just outside of Winchester. He started his DJ career playing on the London scene soon after and later set about self studying Electronic Music Production.
Concentrating his efforts in late 2010 he dedicated more time to the studio focusing on Sound Design, Sound Engineering and Mastering in order to secure his first release. The resulting track was "Anodyne" and a record deal with Monster Tunes after a copy was passed to Ben Nicky. The track gained support from Armin Van Buuren, Gareth Emery, Paul Oakenfold, John 'O Callaghan, Mark Eteson and Ben Nicky to name a few. It featured on a number of radio shows including 2 ASOT plays by Armin Van Buuren, The Gareth Emery Podcast and Paul Oakenfold's Planet Perfecto show. "Anodyne" quickly climbed the download charts including the Beatport Trance Top 100 and Audiojelly in addition to a very positive Mixmag review.
Following a remix request he then produced an uplifting rework of 'Rene Dale - Reset'. After being re-licensed by Monster Tunes the remix went on to be featured by Armin Van Buuren on ASOT with further support from Giuseppe Ottaviani and many others with additional praise from Mixmag. More recently, his single 'Evolve' was supported as the opening track to Aly & Fila's set at Godskitchen Global Gathering 2012, one of several productions on the way.
On the DJ front a guest mix for the Monster Tunes Radio Show with Mark Eteson has featured in addition to a highly acclaimed guest mix for Trancesound.net. He has since played at the O2 Academy (Above & Beyond UK Group Therapy Tour) and Ministry of Sound (Plastic Fondu / The Gallery).
With new productions, guest mixes and increasing DJ bookings, look out for more from him very soon.
