James Essex




James’ musical journey began in the mid 90’s. Partying at the best clubs across London including; The Cross, Bagleys, Turnmills, the infamous Satellite @ The Coliseum, Chunnel, and Sunnyside Up at SW1 to name a few, James got the DJ’ing bug through the amazing dance and house tunes of the 90s era.

An opportunity arose to DJ in Mallorca, so without any hesitation, James jumped on a plane and ended up DJ’ing at various bars and clubs on the circuit, eventually staying for 3 consecutive seasons. James then followed the sun further South with a 2 year residency in Gran Canaria at the premier Spanish nightclub Space.

Once back in London James held a 5 year residency at Barcadia in Kingston, as well as regularly playing at Pacha, Ministry of Sound and Egg for some of the biggest house nights in the early 2000’s. Alongside the gigs James performed for two of Londons most popular pirate radio stations twice a week.

Fast forward to 2022 and after 10 years being a dad, James, with a load more tunes (and a few more grey hairs), now plays across the UK for SHE, Oh So Sexy and various other nights across as well as Soul Fusion in Cyprus and Paphos Beats in Portugal.
