James is an integral part of the Soulstice Crew & our Main Stage front man since Summer Soulstice 3 in 2009.

With him, he brings a wealth of knowledge, having began his DJ career in the early 1970’s @ Bumbles (Wood Green) followed by a brief spell @ Crackers on Friday afternoons with George Power. James’ first encounter with radio was on Horizon Radio in the 1980’s and then went on to be a major part of the original Solar Radio team. In 1990 he co-owned Street Level Records in Tottenham & in the same year joined the north London ILR Radio station W.N.K (Wicked, Neutral & Kicking) which also saw him work alongside Greg Edwards & Dixie Peach (Bernie Michaels). In October 1992 he joined Choice FM where he stayed for 12 years.ss7j-thumb

He now presents a much listened to & long running radio show every Saturday on Solar, via the net & Sky Digital 0129 from 2-4pm GMT, called Turn the Music Up – pure soulfulness from the past and present. James also co-promotes a monthly soul night called The Soul Shack on the third Saturday of the month alongside fellow Soulstice DJ & cohort Ash Selector which has been running since 1998!

James does many guest appearances as a DJ & hosts the Ultimate Boogie Night Soul Concerts in the IndigO2 at London’s O2. Artists have included musical greats as Alexander O’Neal, Cameo, the late Teena Marie, Atlantic Starr, Heatwave, The SOS Band, Black Street, Jean Carn, Gwen McCrae, Shirley Jones, Freddie Jackson, Junior Giscombe, Fatback Band, Kool & The Gang, Incognito, Shalamar, Loose Ends, Chic, Brass Construction’s Randy Muller, James ‘D-Train’ Williams, Maze & Frankie Beverley, Sister Sledge, Charlie Wilson & many more.

But we like to think that James’ proudest times come when he’s working the thousands in the crowd on the Soulstice Main Stage each year…
