James Juke makes his Robsoul Recordings Return with ‘Not How It Started’


On the heels of his recent ‘Ready For This’ EP, James Juke is returning to deliver his ‘Not How It Started’ EP – a sonic journey that highlights James’ smooth house grooves and deep bass and funky synths. The EP is a true delight for house heads worldwide complete with various shades of house.

James Juke knows that there’s nothing like hearing music on a massive sound system and that’s why he’s paying homage to early dance floor anthems through a fresh take on disco and house music. In his own music, championed by tastemaker labels like Kitsune, Robsoul, and Brobot, James Juke aims to capture that same energy—crafting a sound that keeps on til’ the break of dawn.

Gripped by the sound of the midwest and New York, his music is a nod to jackin’ house, and classic garage house; his tracks are vintage-tinted, but timeless—in a sea of mainstream mediocrity, Juke’s classic craftsmanship stands out.

The four-track project features an A-side and B-side that showcases their range and expertise.

He says about it “The inspiration for this track came from two tracks I heard while out dancing one weekend: Pound Boys – Jack It Up (Johnny Corporate Dub) and Ty Brunson – All Of Me (Mount Rushmore Mix). The rawness, the vocals, and the energy all stood out to me on the dance floor and I felt compelled to cook up something with a similar vibe.”

We premiere ‘Not How It Started’ on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it here.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
