James Harcourt discovered a deep love of music in his childhood, with early electronic influences from Morgan Khan's Electro series and also taking influences from punk, goth, rock and pop. Since 2005, James has become an established producer, label owner and DJ - and a popular UK export on the various techno and progressive scenes around the world. Original tracks and remixes have been championed by DJ's across the spectrum, among whom are some of the most consistent and celebrated names such as Dave Seaman, Hernán Cattáneo, Nic Fanciulli, James Zabeila, Sébastien Léger, Fergie and Pete Tong. His tracks have been placed onto an impressive list of CD compilation placements, including Erick Morillo's Subliminal Winter Sessions, Hernán Cattáneo's Renaissance Sequential series, Hook'n'Sling's Chew The Fat! CD and the legendary Pure Pacha collection - testimony to the wide-ranging dancefloor appeal of the music.
James has steadily built his Twisted Frequency label since launching in 2006 - with 2008 release the 'Call & Response E.P' hitting the 10,000 sales mark on Beatport alone. Initially releasing on vinyl & digital, but now a digital only imprint - Twisted Frequency Recordings has been a platform for James' own productions and other original music from upcoming artists around the world - but also also bringing in established quality for rerubs - including the likes of Beckers, Umek, Pig & Dan, Audiojack, Adam Shaw, Hernán Cattáneo, Lützenkirchen and Spirit Catcher.
