DJ jamesjamesjames chats to us about his top gig songs, irrational fears, and pizza toppings.
jamesjamesjames’ sets are a meeting place now – the techno whiz has cultivated a reputation that’s truly his own, based on fashion, inclusivity and a sense of humour.
The latest jamesjamesjames release is a perfect capsule of why so many have adopted him as a techno favourite. “My Purple Ipod Nano (salute remix)” calls back to one of the iconic items of the 2000s and fully embraces that nostalgic spirit in a way that’ll surely resonate with his fanbase.
