James was so inspired by winning the Dubplate competition that he decided to release an album 'Concussion' alongside the dubplate release.

James studied Robotics at UWE Bristol and was a regular user of the Centre for Music (CfM)'s DJ room..

He makes huge DnB bangers as well as doing a bit of DJing in Bristol, including a blistering set at Amplify 2020.
