James Zabiela

‘He is technically the world’s best DJ’ - <em>Time Out, London</em> Southampton born James Zabiela is a rare breed of artist. Over the last 16 years he has become something of a heritage act despite still being 2 decades younger than his peers currently sharing that title. This, partly, is owing to his unrivalled technical abilities in his live performance, which have cemented him into many hearts of electronic music lovers. James has not only been labelled as a technical wizard countless times over but also spearheaded a successful record label and toured the globe many many times. Since its inception in 2012 Jamesí much loved Born Electric imprint has signed music from the likes of Hot Chip, Midland, Tin Man, Scuba, Pedestrian and more all A&R'd by James personally. Curation of events is also something James has passionately developed with Born Electric stages and arenas around the world. Recent times saw a much coveted mash up from James in the form of Bon Iver vs Fatima Yamaha ‘Greeks’ - JZ Messina Mashup, which was picked up by numerous radio stations and tastemakers alike despite never officially being released. 2017 sees a new compilation and corresponding tour for James.
