James Harcourt

James Harcourt seems to have a universal reflection of music; touching on minimal, electro-house, techno ... and seemingly always having a distinctive edge. He began his journey in 2001 where he initiated his musical interest, and slowly progressed into the industry. Last year he began to showcase his productions globally, and started gaining popularity all over Europe. With the recent release of his new EP Dankeschön / Bitteschön many favorable reviews have been posted, and hopefully Canada will be able to experience what this British phenomenon has to offer.

Michael Anthony Ball aka Leeks has been turning out some great minimal house since 2006. He was worked in conjunction with, and made releases with a ton of different record labels, most recently with Noise Engine. Here is the latest from a true minimal house producer. He really deserve some recognition.

Joe Goddard - Gabriel

Joe Goddard - Gabriel (feat. Valentina)

When Joe Goddard isn't make soulful pop tunes with Hot Chip or giving people "bear hugs" with the 2 Bears, he's making catchy BASS music tunes in the vein of Jamie xx, SBTRKT, Julio Bashmore... etc. Check it out and be warned, this song may be stuck in your head.

The talent on this Brit absolutely blows my mind. His creative genius gives him the ability to mash several totally opposite genre together simultaneously. His wild personality keeps his audience in stitches as he wows them with his impressive talent as a worldclass DJ. Oh yeah, did I mention his shows are 100% improvised?

Beardyman has reigned as UK Beatbox champion twice so far and I'm sure its not the last title he'll claim. With his mad skill as a beatboxer, he's fandangled a way to record the sounds he creates using just 5 effect pads, a keyboard and of course his voice. He's able to warp them, loop them, layer them and produce them all live into a cohesive product that rumbles through the speakers and out into the ears of his awestruck fans.

Watch as he challenges his audience to call out any two genres and any theme they can come up with.

Here's a performance he did in Edinburgh at The Underbelly.
