THE YEAR IS 2001 AND THE PLACE IS TEXAS. Stones Throw head honcho Peanut Butter Wolf is DJing while a sharply dressed young man approaches the DJ Booth with his Prom date in tow to formally introduce himself. Thus begins the story of James Pants.

What began as a dream Prom night to see his hero DJ went to an internship at the label to eventually landing the ultimate fantasy by being signed to the roster and championed as the ‘next big thing’ by none other than Peanut Butter Wolf himself – on top of critics like Busy P, Urb, XLR8R, & Dazed & Confused Magazines.

Mr. Pants is a purveyor par excellence of that unmistakable “fresh beat”: 80’s Soul, Electro Boogie, Early Rap, New Wave, & Post-Punk Disco, all of which can be found on Welcome where James plays drums, keys, guitar and sings.

From a radio perspective, what format does this fall under - this new style that Pants has invented? Do you play it on the groove alongside the likes of Skyy, Cameo, or even Pharrell (listen to ‘KA$H’)? Or do you play it in the underground alongside the up-to-the-minute electro pulse of Egyptian Lover, Cybotron and even Too $hort? The answer, of course, is both! There’s enough Pants to fit any style.

    Dude's been killing my playlists as of late. I've always felt like I've slept on him far too much over the years. Finally making good on his greatness.

    Вначале к его творчеству относился скептически... Послушал пару треков в компании друзей. Взяли "на слабо". Помню, как сейчас, я сказал им, что меня не прет. Но на следующий день был жесткий отходос. Друг посоветовал не мучить себя и послушать пару его ремиксов, чтобы прийти в работоспособное состояния. Так было еще несколько раз. Употреблял вначале маленькими дозами. Сейчас подсел плотно. Скачал дискографию. Не брезгую микстейпами и миксами. Теперь ни знаю как слезть. Как уйти от зависимости? Врачи говорят что сразу бросать нельзя - можно загнутся. Нужно потихоньку уменьшать дозу и переходить на "похожих исполнителей". Буду пытаться выполнять их рекомендации, но пока не очень получается. Я не аморальный человек. Поверьте. Это может случится с каждым. Будьте бдительны! James Pants может забрать у вас самое важное - свободу! Огородите себя и своих близких от пагубного влияния этого искусителя.
