It’s good to Talk….
Summer 2006 is fast approaching and with DirtyGroove moving on to the 3rd instalment of our monthly residency at the best bar in South London, Inigo, things are heating up at DirtyGroove Towers. Having rocked the SW4 Launch Party with Carl Cox at Brixton Academy over the recent bank holiday weekend it is with great excitement that we announce the latest guest DJ to sample the delights of our Thursday night shena$$$$ns….
James Talk’s unique, funky tech and acid house sound can already hold claim for causing mayhem on many of the world’s finest dancefloors, and all at the age of just 22. Hailing from the murkiest waters of Southampton, James has already achieved a tremendous amount at such a young age and it seems like things aren't slowing down either.
His first track ‘Eggs Are Cute’ was met with immediate success, receiving major support from the planets leading DJs including James Zabiela and Sasha. Tracks packed with similar acid riffs and killer b-lines were soon to follow with three of them being instantly signed to Saved Records, following a chance meeting with label boss Nic Fanciulli. The first ‘Love That Acid’, reached no 10 in the UK Buzz Charts, whilst the other two ‘House Rhythm’ and ‘Get Down’, both received critical acclaim from all sides of the dance music press. Praise was given to James in a major interview when Fanciulli uttered just three words when asked who the next big thing in dance music was; "James Talk – Amazing."
James’ DJ diary is now filling up rapidly with sets alongside Nic Fanciulli, Lee Burridge, James Zabiela and Desyn Masiello. James completed what was a fantastic 2005 by entertaining the crowds at Godskitchen, Punchfunk, High Tide (for whom he headlined on New Years Eve), Renaissance and Fandango at Turnmills as well as signing to Represents for DJ bookings and mixing the next compilation in the Thinking Out Loud series.
2006 looks set to be an outstanding year for James too with Nic Fanciulli, Sander Kleinenberg and Fergie all choosing him as their breakthrough artist for 2006 in DJ Mag’s Top 100 issue. Since then James has been rocking the dancefloors of Shindig, ClubClass at Ministry Of Sound and Furry Music in Oslo, Norway amongst others, and with future gigs at Womb in Tokyo, Type at The Cross and Tribal Sessions, as well as productions due for release on Get Physical, Toolroom, Urban Torque, Lot 49, Hope and Saved and the launch of his own label Spoken Recordings who are we to argue!
You can catch James playing alongside Dave, Nick & Tom from DirtyGroove at Inigo next Thursday 4th May. DJs will be spinning from 8pm – 2am and it’s £1 shots before 9pm and FREE ENTRY all night! Full details can be found at www.dirtygroove.co.uk.
See you on the dancefloor!
