Biography

UK Trance / Progressive DJ and Producer James Poulton had an early start in music, playing and writing classically in his early years, eventually progressing into Rock music inspired by artists Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. On hearing a Cream Ibiza compilation he crossed over to dance music and started his DJ career playing on the London scene.

Not content with only playing records and wanting to materialise the melodies previously written, he set about learning the basics of Electronic Music Production. Following positive crowd and DJ reactions to early productions, he went on to concentrate his efforts in late 2010 and dedicated 100% of his free time to the studio.

With many tracks already written he focused on self-studying Sound Design, Audio Engineering and Mastering in order to secure his first release. The resulting track was his first demo “Anodyne”. Signed by Monster Tunes after a copy was passed from Ruben Nyborg to Thomas DeColita and Ben Nicky, the track gained support from Armin Van Buuren, Gareth Emery, Paul Oakenfold, John ‘O Callaghan, Mark Eteson and Ben Nicky to name a few. Also featuring on a number of radio shows including 2 ASOT plays by Armin Van Buuren, The Gareth Emery Podcast and Paul Oakenfold’s Planet Perfecto show. Anodyne quickly climbed the download charts including the Beatport Trance Top 100 (Number 12) and Audiojelly (Number 2) in addition to a great Mixmag review.
