James Harcourt is chiefly a producer, but more recently the founder of Twisted Frequency recordings and an occasional DJ too. Born in Hitchin, James has always been intensely passionate about music and as a youngster was happiest making voyages to the local record shops to buy music. Inspired constantly by alternative music shows such as The Tube and the Old Grey Whistle Test James was also taught music from a young age. Classical tuition inevitably gave way to rock’n’roll as James went on to spend a few years playing lead guitar in local bands in Hitchin, always favouring the recording sessions over the often shambolic but energetic live gigs.

While living in London in the late 90’s, James discovered the power of house music at various nights around the capital. Andy Weatherall’s inspiring sets at the legendary Voyager techno nights at the Complex in Islington were great adverts for the energy that 4/4 music could create. The harder, tecchier end of trance was also drawing James in, underground London DJ’s like Darren Pearce and Blu Peter being favourite - before discovering the forward thinking progressive movement at nights such as Whoop It Up and Renaissance.

Decks & a cheap DAW followed - and it didn’t take long for him to get signed as a vibrant progressive scene provided the inspiration for the debut EP Scalar/Casualty which was signed to Canada’s Release Records on the strength of a demo CD originally sent to Whoop! records.
