Doors open at 9pm
The ‘glistening sonics’ of electronic music enticed a grunge loving 16 year old James Zabiela to his first set of belt drive turntables some years ago, fast forward to 2009 and James is one of the most prolific DJs and producers on the planet.
Known for his skills on the turntable, extensive use of loops and effects, the use of CDJ 1000’s and Ableton Live, James Zabiela is a talented individual. James Zabiela has released critically acclaimed compilations on various labels including Renaissance and Ministry of Sound; his most recent album the ‘Masters Series’ is an audio diary of three months in the life of James himself. It out-sold all its predecessors, rode high in both UK and USA iTunes stores and received top reviews from across the board.
His remixes (official and otherwise) hold the same esteem, commissioned remix artists include Ladytron and Spooky, not to mention killer bootlegs like his amazing meld of Radiohead and Joris Voorn. His style spans house, tech-house, techno, melodic sound-scapes and breaks whilst he still cites Depeche Mode as one of his major influences.
In 2006 he was awarded the People's Choice accolade as 'Best International DJ' at the Australian Dance Music Awards. In 2007 he was awarded the Best British DJ at the DJ Mag Best of British DJ Awards while 2007 and 2008 saw James sit in the top 20 of the world famous DJ Mag Top 100.
As a follow-up to last year's critically acclaimed The Masters Series, James Zabiela and Renaissance have joined forces again to release James' forthcoming sequel album, The Masters Series: LIFE. Boomtick are excited to give a FREE copy (Numbers Limited) to those who attend the show on May 20 at Ambar Niteclub!
The album will be presented in a shrink-wrapped, full-colour wallet on a flexi-DVD that's both eco-friendly and lightweight. Alongside the two mixes that comprise the compilation, the free album will also feature exclusive videos as well as other digital content! The album will also be released in the traditional CD and digital formats on 12th of April.
