These days being an artist within the modern forms of Techno, Minimal and House music doesn’t necessarily mean that you must remain exclusive only to the underground sphere. Forgetting the cliches that all music is universal, having knowledge through learning of another genre outside the electronic circle can only mean enriching one’s skill and ability, both as a DJ and a Producer.
For James McHale, this was exactly the reason and the path he sought growing up in his youth. Encouraged by parents who saw the benefits in this, he enlisted in his school’s Jazz group and began an exploration in expression that would continue on for several years, firmly grounding a base in music culture that would continue well into his adult life.
A local of the capital city Bern, it was here where he took an interest in the flourishing Techno scene, who’s new sounds and atmospheres coupled with analog drums brought about a new curiosity and a desire to further understand this new concept. It wouldn’t be long before he would be off spinning across all the cantons and over to London and Ibiza as a touring DJ. To him the future was already set into motion.
To date James has shared the decks with the very best acts currently working in the electronic scene, and as well as exploring the studio as a producer, he is currently the latest resident of prolific event organiser Sunday Breakfast Zurich, where he is bringing his sound to the collective and helping to shape the next generation of underground Swiss artists.
