Born and raised in East London, Anthony James has developed his sound with influences from the gritty city and the percussive and soulful world music introduced to him through his culturally diverse heritage. Learning to play music from the age of 7, producing since 16 and DJing since 18 has led him to play a mix of Afro House & Afro Tech adorned with hints of Deep, Soulful, Latin and Tech House.
Anthony’s productions are built around dramatic, ambient soundscapes, discerning arpeggiated synths, emotive piano chords & riffs with distinct percussion from around the world. His passion as a classically trained pianist and a fascination with fine art and psychology fuel intricate and intentionally experimental compositions.
Anthony’s DJ Career started around 2013 with sets in Shoreditch, (not far from where he grew up) to Brixton when he relocated to the heart of South London. Exploring his love for deep house, he went on to play at venues such as Studio 338, Egg, The Steelyard, Ministry Of Sound and overseas in Spain, Netherlands and Greece. His residencies in London’s nightlife circuit in and around Mayfair gave him the opportunity to further diversify his musical palate at venues such as Tape, MNKY HSE, Aqua, W Hotel, Raffles and many more.
In 2020, he delved into the world of radio broadcasting, joining the Select Radio team. His weekly show, Audiotherapy has garnered support from some of the biggest names across the Afro House & Electronic Music scene; such as Themba, Kasango, Atmos Blaq, Enoo Napa, Aluku Rebels, John Summit and Karyendasoul. A behind-the-scenes view implies that there are plenty of big things on the horizon for the future.
