Next up on the mix series is one of 2020’s most exciting breakout artists, James Bangura. The Washington DC producer has become synonymous with the quality that has come from NYC’s Towhead and Haus Of Altr's compilations, whilst Mister Saturday Night dropped ‘Interpretation of Sound’ on wax at the end last year. His musical roots are multi-disciplinary. Once a military man and marching band member, his early years were spent playing piano and break dancing. 2021 is forecast to be another exciting one, particularly on 12 inch: An EP on Art-E-Fax came in January and there’s rumours of a project on a UK label who’s logo is an eight legged underwater creature (amongst others).
Think Jungle come US House and Techno. His productions are some of the least genre defining around, with dusty, industrial textures a plenty, presumably influenced from his blog house days. Whilst James Bangura is very much at the forefront of the club scene at present, his recent 12” projects are very much bodies of work, those fit for listening as well as the dance.
